Red Rash, Itchy Stomach?
I have had almost 2 months of red rashes on my stomach. I am not pregnant. The shape is a circle with a diameter of 10 cm. Sometimes itch sometimes not. Mostly when itching at night. Why do you ask?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Reddish rashes on the abdomen that are circular and itchy, especially at night, may be caused by fungal infections, for example tinea corporis or cutaneous candidiasis. The abdominal area is indeed an area that is prone to fungal infections because the conditions are moist, especially if you often sweat. Poor personal hygiene, contact (directly or indirectly) with other skin fungal infection sufferers, as well as poor immune system can increase your risk of experiencing this disease. Not infrequently, skin with a yeast infection will look dry, scaly, bruntusan, and easy to peel. If not treated properly, this condition can spread, spread to other areas of the body, and spread to other people around you.
In addition to fungal infections, the redness of your rash may also be caused by other factors, such as allergic contact dermatitis, impetigo, miliaria, irritant contact dermatitis, drug eruptions, insect bites, and so on.
Before your condition worsens, we recommend that you check your complaint directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that it is handled properly according to the cause. If it is true that the doctor suspects that you have a fungal infection, he will give you an antifungal drug plus a number of other drugs, for example anti-itching, antibiotics (if you suspect a secondary bacterial infection), and so on. Further microscopic examination may also be done by the doctor if deemed necessary.
At this time, all you need to do is:
Avoid scratching the rash, although it feels itchy Clean and diligent shower (2-3 times a day) Use clean, dry clothing, do not exchange with others To reduce the itching, you can sprinkle salicyl powder in the rash that appears Avoid contact between skin with substances that can trigger allergies or irritations in your skin Hope it helps yes ..
