Thank you for the question.
The palms that feel itchy, hot, bouncy, runny, festering, and bleed most often indicate that your skin is infected, for example due to viruses, bacteria, parasites, and even fungus. There are several types of infections that can manifest clinically as you experience, for example scabies, tinea manum, impetigo, shingles, Singapore flu, folliculitis, and so on. Sometimes, this infection can also occur secondary to skin disorders that have occurred before.
Aside from infection, your complaint may also occur due to contact dermatitis, dermatitis herpetiformis, drug eruption, atopic dermatitis, burns, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, insect bites, and so on.
Handling of skin conditions like yours often cannot be taken in a short time. Especially if it happens often over and over again. Our advice, given your current condition is breastfeeding, you should not use drugs recklessly. Worried, improper treatment can actually worsen your condition. It could also be that the side effects of these treatments on your baby are even more dangerous.
In order to be given the right treatment, you can check yourself with a doctor or dermatologist. In the meantime, you can try the following steps first:
Be diligent in the morning and evening
Wash your hands using mild soap (non irritating and hypoallergenic) then rinse thoroughly with running water
Shorten your nails regularly
Do not carelessly exchange soap, gloves or clothing with other people
Do not scratch, squeeze, or slough off any rash on the skin
Before contact with the baby, make sure your body is always clean
Avoid contact between your skin and substances that are prone to trigger irritation and allergies, such as latex, detergents, harsh soaps, and so on
Hope this helps ...
