Itchy Lumps On The Buttocks?
Hello doctor, I want to ask, my sister was affected by sangkadi, then the buttocks were itchy, scratched constantly until the wound, sudh in the counter with rivanol then healed, dry ,, suddenly a lump appeared which felt very painful, and the size its big about half a boiled egg, guess what is that ??
Hello Hendra Maulana, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Sangkadi or commonly called ringworm is a skin condition in which there is a fungal infection on the skin which eliminates the need for treatment using antifungal drugs in the form of oral medication or topical medication, depending on the doctor's consideration. If your sister does have a fungal infection, then compressing with rivanol will not cure the infection because basically rivanol only has an anti-bacterial effect (helps kill bacteria), and cannot kill the fungus. Therefore, to ascertain whether the dry fungus infection is cured or not, you should take your sister to the doctor.
Likewise for lumps that are currently appearing, you should also consult these lumps with your doctor, because these lumps can be in the form of abscesses on the buttocks, intestines that come out, hemorrhoids, inflammation of the anus and others. confirm the diagnosis of the disease and also whether or not the disease is related to a yeast infection that your brother had experienced.
While this is at home, don't try to break or squeeze the lump until it breaks on its own. Maintain cleanliness around the buttocks, by cleaning the buttocks well after bowel movements and keep the buttocks area always dry to prevent fungal infections from returning. Also consume enough water and enough fiber foods such as fruits and vegetables to help smooth bowel movements so as to reduce the possibility of infection in the anal area.
I hope this helps.
