Red Rash Festering On The Skin And Feels Pain Like Burning?
Good morning doctor. I am 40th man. 5 days ago 2 days of high fever, accompanied by nausea and difficulty swallowing. After going to the doctor and checking the lab, the results indicated an infection due to bacteria. R n r nI was on antibiotics, fever, and nausea. R n r nBut since yesterday morning the skin came out red rashes on the palms partially purulent hands, feet, arms, some burning pain. Is this a healing reaction, or should it be checked again. R n r nNote: antibiotics are still there for 3 days, and I have a history of herpes on the body about the past 20th.
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Symptoms of a red rash on the body that fester and feel burning pain can actually be a bacterial infection. But in general, the numbers do not spread, and are not preceded by fever, but a rash that is the first symptom you feel. These typical symptoms, followed by a history of herpes disease that you have had, indicate that it is likely that you are currently experiencing the same disease.
This could happen because the virus that causes shingles is not completely gone from the body. The virus is usually only 'sleeping' in certain parts of the body and can re-infect at any time. Among the risk factors for a person to experience this disease are:
Experiencing physical or emotional stress
Have a previous history of chickenpox or herpes
Decreased immune system
So what you can do now, of course, is to finish the antibiotics that have been given because antibiotic consumption must be continued until they run out. Then get your skin problems checked by a skin specialist. Your doctor will perform a brief physical exam looking directly at the rash, and if it is shingles, you may be given antiviral medication to help your body recover.
Meanwhile, to relieve pain you can take over-the-counter pain medications by reading the instructions for use listed, wear loose clothing, avoid using adhesive covers such as plaster to avoid further irritation, and keep the pimple clean and dry. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
