good afternoon doctor, introduce my name is Hellen. I have a friend who while eating fish his body started to itch so at first it was just a scar, gradually it started to turn black and became a little swollen.. my friend has tried to buy an ointment, initially it was very suitable because of the wound. It’s starting to dry out. But now because I rarely use ointment, the wound on her leg is getting bigger and bleeding is a little and now the doctor’s clear fluid is starting to come out continuously. thanks

Dear Helen,


The consumption of seafood has long been known as the culprit for the emergence of allergic reactions in many circles. Allergic reactions that appear are usually around itching followed by a red rash or welts all over the skin. Unfortunately the response of people when experiencing itching is usually by scratching it. This scratching can damage the integrity of the skin and cause sores that can swell and become infected. Scratching too harshly can even cause the wound to enlarge and bleed. The discharge of clear fluid in the wound could be pus which is a sign of infection accompanied by swelling of the wound.


Try to clean the wound with soap and clean water. After that, keep the wound dry. Wounds may need to be examined directly by a doctor for treatment such as anti-inflammatory creams and antibiotics. If the swelling is large enough, it may be necessary to remove the pus for faster healing. Therefore, do not hesitate to check your condition with your doctor. Here we attach an article about allergies. May be useful.
