Reddish-colored Nipple Feels Itchy In The Lower Abdomen?
hello I want to ask, yesterday the day after tomorrow on the skin at the bottom of the stomach is like pimples and sometimes there is itching. After I find out, it looks like it’s folliculitis. red rash around it and there is a pus point. Is it dangerous? If left unchecked can disappear alone or not? and how to overlay it? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of reddish-colored pus that feels itchy in the lower abdomen can indeed indicate folliculitis. This condition occurs when the hair root has an infection. The cause of this infection is mainly the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. However, it does not rule out infection also caused by other microorganisms, including fungi and viruses. Hair that grows into the skin can also trigger inflammation which leads to folliculitis.
Although it is not impossible to grow in the stomach, folliculitis actually grows more often in areas of the body that are amputated, for example in the head, pubic, armpits, around beards and mustaches (in men). As for the bump you are experiencing, other than due to folliculitis, it may also arise due to other causes, such as acne, ulcers, scabies (scabies), miliaria (prickly heat), warts, insect bite marks that have secondary infections, contact dermatitis, and so on.
Frequently, your condition can self-repair with good care and endurance. Some suggestions that you should do:
Diligent bathing twice a day Use clothes that are clean, loose, and do not cause excessive friction on the stomach that has a nodule Not breaking, scratching, or forcibly picking out nodules that appear Don't just give care to the nodules Don't exchange towels, clothes or other personal items with others If itching, do not scratch, just compress with cold water However, if in 3 to 5 days the complaint does not improve, but instead spread, we recommend that you consult yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist so that the best treatment is given yes..
I hope this helps.
