Overcoming Itching Due To Rubber Pants Accompanied By Watery Spots?
Hello, I want to ask this, yesterday I graduated all day wearing leggings with a very tight stomach elastic, I wore it from 4 am to 4 pm, after removing it there was a red and itchy mark, I felt like a normal itch after wearing normal tights, I scratched, but scratched it was smooth, not hard, and I felt the pain I didn’t continue to scratch, over time the pain was still felt and then I saw a small, runny spot like herpes but not red. How to treat it?
Hello Nadiah! Congratulations on your graduation! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
When using pants that are too tight, our skin will experience irritation. The irritation on the skin will cause it to be itchy, red, and slightly swollen. When we scratch, the irritation that occurs can get worse, causing pain. In general, the pain that comes from scratching is the sensation we unconsciously want to fade the itching. This can occur because the sensation of pain is more dominant than itching. Irritation is one of the ways the skin opens up defense. As a result, irritated skin can get infected more easily. The tiny watery spots you see can't be sure if they are part of the irritation or are a sign of an infection. It takes a direct examination to determine it. Avoid scratching the itchy area and wear loose and comfortable pants for a while. Also use underwear that absorbs sweat and is not too tight. If the spots persist or the itching and pain you experience is very annoying, you should immediately see a dermatologist for examination. The doctor will examine your skin condition directly and give you the appropriate medication for your condition.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
