Medication To Deal With Skin Diseases?
I have suffered from a skin disease since I entered the boarding school from junior high school and now I am in senior high school, the disease I suffer is itching in the area around the knee, small spots, and when scratched it often releases fluid. I have seen a doctor, he said, this is caused by bacteria and I was given a scabimite saleb, but it only disappeared after a while the disease recurred. What is the solution? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itching, spots, and runny around the knee as you experience it may be a symptom of scabies, or more commonly known as scabies (scabies). This condition occurs when a parasite (Sarcoptes scabiei) enters and infects the skin, triggering inflammation. This parasite is very easily transmitted from person to person, either through direct contact (for example when shaking hands) or indirectly (for example when exchanging clothes or towels). Students in Islamic boarding schools are indeed one of the groups at high risk of experiencing scabies due to the dense living conditions and often poorly maintained hygiene.
The parasites that cause scabies can easily spread and lay eggs anywhere. Therefore, the handling of this disease is not enough to do just by applying an ointment. You also need to eradicate all of these parasitic breeding dens, including by:
Bathing diligently at least 2 times a day
Do not scratch, squeeze, or forcefully exfoliate areas of itchy or freckled skin
Use special anti-parasitic soap and shampoo if necessary (as directed by your doctor)
Diligent hand washing and shorten nails regularly
Wash and boil all clothes, towels, sprey, and other items that may be contaminated with parasites, then dry in the sun to dry completely
Clean periodically all furniture that may be contaminated by parasites
Always maintain cleanliness, ventilation, and lighting in the environment where you live
Avoid direct or indirect contact with other scurvy sufferers
Invite other scurvy sufferers to take treatment to the doctor
Check your complaint with your doctor or dermatologist so your doctor can give you the best treatment. Not only scabies, several other conditions, such as folliculitis, chicken pox, impetigo, atopic dermatitis, etc. can also cause complaints similar to what you are experiencing at the moment. With direct examination, of course the diagnosis can be established well and given treatment in accordance with the cause.
Hope this helps ...
