Itching On The Back Of The Hand Where The Infusion Bandage Was Used?
Evening, r nI am a mother who was treated yesterday after a normal delivery, on the back of my right hand, yesterday was installed a way for infusion (infusion that entered: induction fluid on the first day of treatment, the second day of antibiotics, which then continued with the induction fluid again) when the third day, because the infusion containing induction which was flowed back did not run out for 24 hours due to jamming u0026amp; the back of my hand was swollen, the nurse asked permission to remove the tube u0026amp; closed it with instoper, in the afternoon I was allowed to go home by the doctor, and I asked for the venflon to be removed. r nAfter a while it was removed, I felt itching in the area where the plaster was used to keep the venflon from moving, initially I let it be because I thought maybe it is the tingling sensation that lingers after childbirth (tingling during pregnancy, bahal u0026amp; numbness of the fingertips). Arriving at home, the area of the skin used by the plaster protrudes with bumps with the surface of small spots the size of a pore filled with water, if scratched it will cause a burning sensation to relieve it I compress with warm salt water, but this only relieves the feeling of heat u0026amp; itching for a few moments after being compressed, the bumps don’t heal and the itching sensation doesn’t appear again. Why is it so, what is the right treatment for itching like this?
Thank you for the question. Itching you feel on the area where the plaster was used may be due to an allergic reaction to the plaster material. Allergy to the plaster material can cause a reddish rash in accordance with the marks that the plaster has been attached to which can be accompanied by the appearance of bumps on the skin and itching or burning sensation. You can apply a cold compress, apply salicylic powder, or apply calamine lotion to the area to relieve itching. Avoid scratching the itchy area so that it doesn't cause cuts on the skin. If this complaint does not improve within 3 days, please consult your doctor for further examination and treatment. Depending on the severity of the condition, the doctor will provide the right treatment for you. Avoid taking medicines without doctor's orders if you are breastfeeding your baby.
