Red Skin With White Patches In The Thigh Area Near The Knee And Feels Painful?
I’m red in the thigh area near the knee and around the red area in the middle there is a white spot.. it hurts and it’s a bit swollen.. what’s the solution?
There are several possible causes for the redness of the skin on your thighs, such as burns, inflammation, or intense exposure to the sun.
While white patches that appear on the surface of the skin can indicate a symptom of the following conditions:
tinea versicolor pytriasis alba psoriasis Hansen's disease color changes after inflammation Please see a dermatologist, so that the doctor can do a direct examination/observation of the area you are complaining about. From these examinations can determine the cause and appropriate therapy according to the cause of your complaint. For example, if the cause of your complaint is a fungal infection, the doctor will prescribe antifungal drugs to be taken orally or ointment/cream/gel.
There are several things that you need to pay attention to, such as routinely cleaning the body, cold compresses on the area that is complained of, if it is very painful you can take paracetamol as a pain reliever, avoid using pants whose material can aggravate irritation to your complaint, try not to make the area that is complained of in a humid state. , you should not use any substance that is not in accordance with the doctor's advice, get enough rest, consume nutritious foods that are good for your immune system.
