Management Of Blistered Skin Disease Due To Pompholyx?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask whether my skin blisters due to Pompholyx can I soak with nacl liquid?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Pompholyx is a skin condition whose appearance is marked by small fluid-filled blisters, mainly on the sides of the fingers, palms and soles of the feet. In addition to blisters, it can also cause itching, burning, also pain and pus.
It is still unclear what causes this condition, but so far it has been linked to several factors, such as:
Warm or hot weather conditions
Often exposed to chemicals, such as nickel, cobalt, detergents, perfumes, shampoos and cosmetics
Side effects of antibiotic drugs
Regarding your question, if it is certain that you have experienced pompholyx, then the treatment done at home usually uses PK water or potassium permanganate, not salt liquid or NaCl. The trick is to soak your hands in PK water for 10-15 minutes, 2-3 times a day, for 5 days. Treatment given by doctors is usually in the form of hypo-allergenic drugs, ointments, injections and UV light therapy.
But if you are not sure you have been infected with pompholyx, or the diagnosis of pompholyx that you have was not obtained from a doctor, you should check yourself with a dermatologist, because there are many types of skin diseases that at first glance are similar, even for doctors. Therefore it is important to ensure the diagnosis first to the experts, namely dermatologists, then determine the treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
