Hello, these days my stomach has appeared on the spot (which was originally red) itchy and then the spot has become dry. Because of the itching, I like to scratch it, then the spot (which is already dry) becomes peeled off. What do you think this is? And is there an ointment that I can buy at the pharmacy? Thank you in advance.

Hi Alfi,

Thank you for the question.

The appearance of reddish skin spots that feel itchy, dry, and peel in the stomach can be caused by several types of skin infections, for example impetigo, tinea versicolor, tinea corporis, and some of them. Besides infection, several other skin conditions, such as contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, drug eruption, xerosis, neurodermatitis, psoriasis, etc. can also cause clinical symptoms like this.

Frequently, if the complaint is not spread or contagious, this condition is not dangerous. But indeed, if it is very disturbing, this condition should still be examined directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that it is treated further according to the cause.

In the meantime, we don't recommend you carelessly use an ointment. Safer, first resolve your complaint by:

 Bathing clean and diligent Dry your body well before dressing Use clean and soft towels and clothing ingredients Do not arbitrarily exchange personal items with others Although itchy, do not over-scratch or rub the skin Do not let the skin contact with substances that may be vulnerable to trigger inflammation in skin, for example detergents, sharp soap However, if it does not heal well, you can check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist to be given further treatment, ok?

I hope this helps.
