Itching On The Skin Of The Feet Like There Are Small Bumps After Using The Concocted Lotion?
Hello doctor r nI use the concocted Handbody and when using it, I feel that my skin is starting to become pure white but then I feel itchy on the legs such as small bumps such as mosquito bites r nIs that dangerous ??
The complaint you experience may be contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis is an inflammatory condition of the skin due to contact with a trigger causing irritation or allergy. Contact dermatitis can cause several complaints, such as itchy skin, redness, rashes or spots appearing, peeling, and blisters. Contact dermatitis will improve when contact with the trigger is stopped, in which case your trigger is probably the handbody lotion you are using. If the contact dermatitis lesion is extensive or does not improve immediately, the doctor can give corticosteroids and antihistamines if necessary.
But apart from contact dermatitis, your complaints can also be caused by other things such as atopic eczema, insect bites, fungal infections, impetigo, scabies, allergic reactions (food allergies, cold weather, drugs). To ascertain the cause, an examination by a doctor is needed first.
In the meantime you can try to do the following tips:
Stop using handbody lotion. Use soothing gel or soothing cream if necessary. Cold compress to reduce itching. You can also apply calamine lotion to reduce itching. Keep itchy areas clean and swollen. Try not to scratch the itchy area. If you want to use lotion, you should choose one that is registered. at the BPOM and do a patch test on the first side. If within 3 days the complaint does not improve, I suggest that you check with the doctor directly so that an examination can be done to ascertain the cause of your complaint so that you can be given more optimal further treatment. If it is true that it is caused by ontact dermatitis, the doctor can give you an oral corticosteroid and antihistamine ointment.
