Scaly Itching In Exhaust Scars?
Hello. I want to ask when I was in elementary school, my ankle was hit by a big exhaust. Well after I was a teenager whose original wound was completely healed, suddenly itchy, sometimes festering, which only appeared in the exhaust, about 3 months, had not healed even though I went back and forth to the doctor and used herbal medicine. It is said to be caused by fungus but does not specify what the disease is but the form is rich in ringworm but is more rough. Please help, please :(. Thank you in advance
Itching on the skin can be caused by many things, but some of the most common in these areas include:
Neurodermatitis or chronic lichen simplex. It is a chronic inflammation of the skin, usually forming skin lesions such as patches (consisting of small spots that collect) the size of a coin can be enlarged, itchy, often accompanied by injuries due to scratching the patient, initially reddish in color but if often blackish, appear to scale (scale, a layer of dry skin) thick on top, if it's been a long time feeling rough compared to the surrounding skin.
Pioderma. Bacterial skin infections, generally caused by normal bacterial skin which increases in number or because there is interference with the skin layer. Characterized by redness, can appear nodules accompanied by pus discharge, itching is not too, in severe conditions fever can appear.
Fungal infections, characterized by active skin lesions on the edges and the middle part heal. Red spots on the edges, can be widened, thin scales, itching especially when the air is damp or sweaty skin. Usually appear more often in the folds of the skin
For appropriate treatment, you must first check the skin abnormalities that you experience. Because the treatment for neurodermatitis is different from pyoderma and also fungal infections. Skin disease that has long been experienced, of course, the cure also takes a long time. The principle is not to scratch the skin, because the more scratched, dirty fingers will actually make the area infected by other germs. If excessive itching the doctor will usually give antihistamine drugs to reduce itching. It's better if you check the skin disorder to a dermatologist.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
