Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Armed with only a brief description like what you say, it is really very difficult to identify exactly what kind of complaint you are experiencing. Need to clarify first, where is the exact location of your complaint? How big is the size? How long has it been in appearance? Is it filled with pus or water? So, are there any other complaints that you feel?
Here we describe some of the possibilities that can trigger your complaint:
Skin infections, for example due to:
Folliculitis (infection of the hair root by bacteria, viruses, or fungi)
Herpes zoster (reactivation of the Varicella zoster virus in the skin and nerve fibers)
Impetigo (a bacterial infection that causes peeling, watery, purulent skin)
Scabies (infection of the Sarcoptes scabeii mite, scabies)
Keloid, hypertrophic scar (excessive growth of scar tissue in the skin after inflammation)
Contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with an allergenic or irritant substance)
Psoriasis (chronic skin inflammation due to an autoimmune disorder that makes the skin thickened, peeled, and scars)
Insect bites, and so on
You should first check your complaint with your doctor so that you can identify the cause. That way, you can find the best treatment to deal with your complaints, whether by administering drugs, surgery, or other medical measures.
At this point, what we can recommend is avoiding excessive scratching even if the skin feels itchy. Apply calamine lotion so that the itching subsides. Always shower diligently and clean your skin using a cleansing soap that is suitable for your skin type. Avoid borrowing and borrowing personal equipment, such as towels or clothes with other people.
Hope it helps ..
