Red-red Disease On The Skin Of The Feet And Itching?
Hello, my name is Maria. I am still 13 years old. Not long ago, I had a fever (a kind of fever), not even 1 week, there were lots of red spots around my legs from the bottom to my thighs, 1-2 days I didn’t feel anything, but it took a long time to itch, which was just Itching on the legs, so it spreads to the hands and neck, but around the hands and neck there are no spots at all. Oh yes, these spots do not appear like bumps caused when they are bitten by mosquitoes, these spots are like they are inside my skin. I wonder why y? I have tried using liquid Caladin (which is pink in color) to relieve the itching, but it didn’t work at all. I have also had symptoms like this before, but the spots were not as red and as many as this and in the past the itching could not be resolved so I had to have a blood check. I wonder why this?
Good evening Maria, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The symptom of the appearance of red spots as described above is also called a rash. An itchy rash can appear due to the following possibilities:
Chickenpox Allergies Insect bites Fungal infections of the skin Atopic eczema Contact dermatitis Impetigo Measles Rubella
And actually there are several other possibilities. Our advice is that you should first check with a dermatologist so that your complaints can be seen directly and carried out for supporting examinations such as taking skin samples, blood tests and so on if necessary. The treatment you will receive later depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, to reduce itching, apply cold compresses to the itchy area, avoid warm baths, take over-the-counter antihistamines, and try to combat the itching by not scratching as much as possible. Avoid taking prescription drugs and those not recommended by your doctor. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
