Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Skin that feels itchy, runny, festering, and feels painful after using henna can be a sign of the following conditions:
Allergic contact dermatitis; can occur if you have a tendency to hypersensitivity to the components contained in the henna
Irritant contact dermatitis; can occur if the henna you use contains substances that are irritative
Skin infections; can occur for example if the henna that you use in dirty conditions and contaminated with harmful microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, or others
Aside from the above conditions, it could also be that complaints on your skin actually occur due to other causes that are not always related to the henna that you used before, for example due to insect bites, seborrheic dermatitis, scabies (scabies), tinea pedis (foot yeast infections) , diabetic ulcers, and so on.
We suggest, considering that your complaint has occurred for 3 days, you should not let it drag on. It is feared, if it does not get the right treatment, this condition can be more widespread and more difficult to cure. Check your complaint directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that you can be given appropriate treatment.
Some of the following steps you can do in the meantime:
Do not hold the leg area with dirty hands
Clean the area of wet and suppurating foot skin using clean gauze moistened with IV fluids
Do not squeeze or slough off the leg skin that is experiencing complaints
Do not carelessly provide treatment for feet that have complaints without doctor's advice
Always use clean, dry, not too narrow, and regularly replaced footwear
Avoid contact between the feet with substances that are vulnerable to cause your skin to experience allergies or irritation
Do not smoke
Hope this helps ...
