1 Answer:

Hi Anita,

The condition of the appearance of pus-filled bumps on the skin is often caused by a skin infection such as impetigo. However, not all of these conditions are caused by impetigo and can also be caused by the following conditions:

Foot-hand-mouth disease Erythema multiforme Herpes zoster etc. An immediate examination is needed to determine the cause of your sister's complaint and therefore if the complaint is very disturbing, it is better for your sister to see a doctor to get the appropriate treatment according to the condition that underlies the complaint.

The doctor will ask for a history of your sister's complaints, perform a physical examination or additional examinations such as blood tests or skin scrapings. If the complaint is caused by impetigo, the doctor will prescribe an appropriate antibiotic ointment to treat it and other drugs according to the complaint.

If the complaint is caused by foot and mouth disease, the doctor generally only prescribes medication according to the complaint (symptomatic) because the condition can heal by itself. In addition to the doctor's treatment, your sister can also do the following suggestions regarding her complaint:

Enough rest Maintain general body hygiene Do not scratch or touch the body part that is complained of Increase the consumption of water, at least 2-3 liters per day for adults Immediately consult a doctor if the complaint persists or worsens Hope this is useful,
