Itchy, Painful And Rash-shaped On The Feet?
Hello. For the past few months, I accompanied my mother in the hospital. All activities including bathing I do at the hospital. After every shower, my body itches. The most severe part of the leg. Initially I thought itch was normal. It turned out to be a small, red and itchy circle on my left and right legs. What is the cause and how to overcome it? Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions that you experience can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Fungal infections or tinea corporis
Scabies or scabies
Allergies, for example to water, dust or certain chemicals
Insect bite or sting
This can be triggered by the lack of cleanliness or hygiene, which is also supported by the gathering of many sick people in one place and sharing a bathroom, can also be triggered by the quality of water available at the hospital, and so forth. Our advice, check with your dermatologist to find out which of the above possibilities is the most likely cause of your complaint. Handling can be in the form of ointments or oral medication.
Meanwhile, if possible, take a bath at home for a while. Then avoid the habit of scratching even though itchy, because there can be sores and further infections. In addition, to relieve itching, cold compresses and sprinkle with salicyl powder, or apply calamine lotion. So, hopefully answering your question.
