Overcoming Itchy Watery Wounds Due To A Chemical Allergy?
Hello, I want to ask. I’m wearing a stainless watch, so when I wear it for a few days my hands are itchy so I scratch until the wound and the wound runny. Do you think how to do it? Is it the same for removing the scars?
Is this your first time trying to wear a stainless steel watch? Are itching and sores on the contact areas of the watch? If the itching and skin lesions are on the contact areas of the watch, it is probably contact dermatitis.
Contact dermatitis occurs when the skin experiences an irritating / allergic reaction to a trigger that comes into contact with the skin. Some people do get contact dermatitis due to the material of the watch. Symptoms of contact dermatitis include itching, redness, watery rashes, blisters, burning and peeling. If the skin is scratched until a wound occurs, the wound can become a doorway for germs so that secondary infection can occur.
I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that you can do an examination to confirm the condition of the lesion on the skin so that you can be given proper treatment. If it is true that it is caused by contact dermatitis, the doctor can give an ointment filled with corticosteroids and antibiotics if necessary. If it is very itchy, doctors can add antihistamines and corticosteroids to reduce itching and inflammation in the skin.
While waiting to see the doctor, you should stop wearing the watch, try not to use anything on the injured skin, clean the wound area with mild soap, and try not to get exposed to the sun.
As for the scars, if they are just black, they will usually disappear over time. To help fade scars, you can use scar removal creams that are sold in pharmacies, use body scrubs, home peels, and lotions that contain brighteners and sunscreen. But keep in mind, yes, scar treatment is carried out if the wound or lesion on the skin has completely healed. For now, it's better to focus on dealing with the contact dermatitis lesions first.
Hope it can help you,
