Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Inflammation of the skin, which is characterized by dry, itchy, red, rash (resembling pimples), peeling, to discharge can indeed indicate an infection. This infection usually occurs due to poor personal hygiene. If this complaint appears in the back of the neck skin area, then the possible triggers are:
Use of unclean clothing (such as dirty collars) Irregular showering and washing of hair Production of excessive sweating which makes the skin moisturised, for example in sportsmen, men, or people who have a fever Often touch the neck with unidentified hands Use dirty jewelry (such as necklaces), etc. The causes of this infection can vary, including fungi (for example tinea corporis, tinea versicolor), bacteria (for example impetigo, folliculitis, acne), viruses (for example Shingles), or mites ( for example scabies). If you scratch this inflamed skin excessively, the inflammation can actually get worse, or even a wound will appear which causes the skin to sting.
You also need to know that not only infection, complaints on the skin as you experience can also indicate other medical conditions, such as contact dermatitis (local skin inflammation due to contact with irritating or allergenic substances), seborrheic dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation that results in scaly skin like dandruff), psoriasis (chronic skin inflammation due to an autoimmune disorder that causes skin to thicken, peel, and scar), and so on.
Try to check your complaint directly to a dermatologist so that your complaints that have been around for a long time can be handled appropriately. The doctor may perform additional tests, such as allergy tests, skin tissue biopsy, blood tests, and so on to identify the originator of your complaint.
In the meantime, it is not recommended to use any ointments or drugs to deal with complaints before checking them directly to a doctor. Giving improper handling is very risky to worsen your complaint. Avoid touching, peeling, or scratching the skin rash too often. Always wear clean and soft clothes (cotton) so that your skin does not become irritated. Do not exchange clothes, towels, or other personal items with other people. Be more diligent in maintaining personal hygiene, including by showering and washing your hair regularly. Finally, avoid contact between the skin and substances that can trigger allergies or irritation.
Hope this helps ..
