Itchy Feet After Playing On The Beach?
Good afternoon, sorry I want to ask, so a few days ago I was discharged from the beach, and could play on the beach a bit longer and after that go home. The next day I found a blackened mark like burning in the soles of my feet and it felt like it was tingling but itchy, after I was given a mild treatment such as by wasp oil, the itchiness was abated, but back again, guess that’s why, and I had to do it. thanks.
Hello Rezza, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
The symptoms that you experience can be caused by several diseases such as:
Contact dermatitis caused by jellyfish stings / similar animals. Tinea pedis. - fungal infections of the feet, due to the moist foot conditions. It looks like the disease you are experiencing is not so worrying, and dangerous. Now you can clean the wounds that arise every day. To reduce the itching, you can take anti-histamines. If the complaint continues, contact your doctor immediately for further treatment, because there is still a possibility that the spots are fungus, so the need for anti-fungal drugs.
Right now what you can do is:
Do not over-scratch the itchy area, because it can cause blisters and facilitate infection. Avoid moist feet. Get enough rest, so that the body's immunity increases. That's all my answer, hopefully it helps.
Thank you very much :)
