Leg Skin Peeling And Getting Thinner?
Good afternoon so this is my work, my work is almost average playing with water, my skin peeled off, getting thinner what is the cause huh?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints of skin peeled feet in people who work in environments that are often exposed to water does not rule out the possibility of tinea pedis. It is caused by a fungal infection that causes flaky and flaky skin, itchiness, and the most frequent location is between the toes. However, complaints of peeling skin that feels itchy between the toes can also be caused by several other possibilities, including:
Irritant contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with irritative substances [detergents, soaps, chemicals, etc.], not related to the process of immune sensitization so symptoms can occur at first exposure to irritative substances)
Allergic contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with allergens [rubber, metal, plant pollen], related to the process of formation of the body so that symptoms usually arise after repeated exposure to allergenic substances)
Scabies (parasitic infection of Sarcoptes scabiei which results in skin rashes, especially in the area between the fingers, around the genitals, buttocks, armpit folding, itching especially at night, occurs in a group of people who live together, for example dormitory or family)
We recommend that you check with your doctor or dermatologist and skin specialist for proper evaluation and treatment. If an indication is found, the doctor will probably perform a supporting examination in the form of skin scrapings and followed by examination under a microscope. Your doctor may prescribe creams / ointments to be applied to the part of the skin that has symptoms, as well as oral medication to reduce complaints of itching.
As a suggestion, you can take the following steps:
Keep between your fingers in a fairly dry condition and not damp from sweat
If you are forced to always be exposed to water during work, you should use personal protective equipment, such as boots
Avoid using clothes / towels with other people
If you use socks frequently, avoid using it repeatedly without washing it first
