Itching On The Toes Until The Wound Is Runny?
Hey, I want to ask, I was initially affected by itching on the fingers and toes, over time the gata became watery wounds, when the wound began to dry out and make the skin again, why did the diarrhea actually have pus? then how to overcome and treat it? thank you
Hello, good afternoon Adii ...
Itching of the fingers and toes can be caused by various conditions, such as fungal infections (water fleas), skin inflammation due to skin contact with substances that cause allergic / irritant reactions or also called contact dermatitis (for example due to coloring agents or leather / rubber material on shoes / sandals, foot exposure with soap / detergent, etc.), dry leg skin, scabies infection (scabies), insect bites, and so on. When the skin is itchy, and then scratched, micro-lesions, or small sores, occur, causing the surface of the skin to no longer be intact. The presence of these wounds can be a way for the entry of other germs that cause new skin infections, or referred to as secondary infections. One sign of secondary infection is pus. In addition to secondary infections, the presence of pus in the legs can also be caused by other causes, such as infection of the tissue under the skin (cellulitis), or may be associated with it (if pus forms in the area around the nails).
Please note that it is very difficult to diagnose a skin disorder without our direct observation. Therefore, we recommend that you see yourself directly to the doctor. The doctor will conduct questions and answers about complaints, and conduct a physical examination. Generally there is no need for additional examinations for cases like yours, but if the examining doctor really feels the need (for example to rule out another diagnosis) then a skin lab examination can be recommended.
If your condition is indeed a secondary infection, the doctor will usually treat the secondary infection first, by cleaning the wound, administering antibiotics (topical antibiotics or taking antibiotics), anti-inflammatory drugs, and so on. After the secondary infection begins to improve, usually the underlying skin disease is treated, so there is no recurring secondary infection.
While waiting for the doctor's schedule, we recommend that you maintain personal hygiene by bathing twice a day, cleansing the wound (can use antiseptic fluid), and avoid touching the parts of the skin that are abnormal to avoid worsening the condition. Meanwhile, avoid using shoes first and avoid moist conditions on the feet. If the wound is painful, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers, such as paracetamol.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
