Overcoming Injuries Caused By Callus-like Tomcat?
Afternoon, I want to ask. 7 years ago I was hit by tomcat, now my thumb was like a burn, it was dry at first, I thought it would disappear but after that I liked it so I scratched it, and I covered it with tape, but instead it was like a callus. Can the wound disappear? if you can, is there an ointment / cream? What is its name . Mercy
Good evening, thanks for the question
Likenification is a condition where the skin becomes thickened as a result of the habit of scratching in a long time and constant. When you are constantly scratching the cells in the skin will begin to grow, causing the thickened toes. The skin will look like it has cracks, wrinkles or scales.
The initial condition can be caused by skin disorders that cause itching complaints including:
- allergic dermatitis
- dermatiris contact
- dry skin
- insect bites
- obsessive compulsive behavior
Make further consultations with your doctor to get adequate treatment. Your doctor may give you ointments containing steroids to treat these skin disorders and allergic medicines to suppress the itching reaction so that the patient does not continue to scratch. In this forum we cannot recommend a particular brand of trade drugs, so consult with your doctor first.
While always wear closed clothing in the area of the disorder, nails should always be short, not use body products that contain perfume, and use cold compresses to soothe itchy and inflammatory skin.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam
