Scalp And Suppurating Scalp
Doc, yesterday I was bleaching my own hair at home. I use a shower cap as a cover after bleaching, maybe because it is too hot due to the bleaching product my scalp becomes sore and festering but only at one point. rasanyq was a bit scared and a little dizzy. for treatment, what should it be like, doc? Thank you in advance.
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what exactly is contained in the bleaching product? Is it recommended directly by a doctor? After bleaching, how long does the time lag until complaints appear on your skin?
Painful ulcers on the scalp after bleaching are likely to indicate that you have an allergy or irritation to the bleaching product used. The impact of allergies or irritants, can make your skin inflamed, to release a variety of chemical mediators that make the skin red, sore, itchy, sore, sore, runny, bruntusan, swelling, peeling, and can also become festering or give off a bad odor when having a secondary infection (for example due to over-handling with dirty hands). In the medical realm, skin inflammation due to contact with certain substances is called contact dermatitis.
Not only contact dermatitis, complaints on your skin can also be caused by other factors, which are not always related to the bleaching product you are using, for example due to tinea capitis, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, folliculitis, atopic dermatitis, insect bites, scabies, etc. .
To get better, it seems you need to get yourself checked by a doctor or dermatologist. Bring the bleaching product that you have used, then show it to your doctor to evaluate its potential to cause your current complaints. By looking directly, of course the doctor can evaluate deeply the possible causes, then give him the right treatment. Concerned, if treatment is late, and your condition occurs related to infection, then this infection can be more widespread or spread to people around you.
In the meantime, the following initial steps you can take:
Take a diligent bath, wash your hair and scalp 1-2 days with a suitable shampoo, then rinse thoroughly thoroughly
No more careless hair or skin care, including bleaching, hair coloring, and so on, without consulting a doctor first
Do not hold the scalp that has complaints with dirty hands
Do not carelessly exchange personal items, including headgear, with others
Drink plenty of water, and eat foods rich in antioxidants
Hope this helps ...
