Medication To Treat Cellulitis?
I want to ask if there are drugs to treat cellulitis
Hello Fina, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Previously I would like to clarify what you are asking that DVT / Deep vein thrombosis is a different condition from cellulitis. Where DVT itself is the occurrence of blood clots in one or more deep veins, and cellulitis is an infection of the skin tissue.
I will answer what you ask of cellulitis itself can occur due to infection of the skin tissue that includes, subcutaneous & dermis. This infection can be caused by Streptococcus and Staphylococcus bacteria that enter the skin through injuries that occur on the skin such as due to fungal infections, abrasions caused by scratching, surgical scars, insect bites, etc.
Symptoms that arise in the form of skin becomes red, swollen, painful, blistered or festering skin. If not treated properly this infection can spread to other organs through the lymph nodes. So it's good you consult a dermatologist if you have this problem.
Right now what you can do is:
Avoid excessive scratching if itchy skin is aroused. Always keep your hands clean and your skin clean. Avoid massaging red and painful areas. Immediately seek treatment at a dermatologist if you experience these problems. Take the medicine according to the doctor's recommendations and dosage. Avoid consuming drugs carelessly. That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
