Small Bumps Under The Skin That Are Reddish, Hard And Painful To The Touch?
Hi .. How many months does my body often grow small bumps, only bumps in the flesh / under the skin. feels hard, if touched pain, if seen from the outside like a mosquito bite, red … Grow everywhere, most often the foot area from the sole of the foot to the thigh .. And later if the pain disappears, it will appear somewhere else … color the reddish mosquito bite turned black, but the hard lump hadn’t disappeared, it disappeared a long time ago, but it didn’t hurt anymore … My legs looked ugly, so many black files … What was that? This bothers me once, especially if it touches pain 😭
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of small bumps under the skin, which are reddish, hard, painful to the touch, such as being bitten by a mosquito may indicate the following conditions:
Bitten by mosquitoes or other insects
Skin infections, such as folliculitis, prickly heat, acne, shingles, leprosy, fungal infections
Cholinergic urticaria (bumps and itching that arise due to stimulation of cholinergic nerve fibers near the sweat glands)
Drug eruption (inflammatory reaction that appears specific after consumption of certain drugs)
Others, for example hyperkeratosis pilaris, xerosis, benign or malignant tumors, contact dermatitis, etc.
The blackish scar is usually caused by excessive scratching, rubbing, or manipulating the bump. However, this blackish scent can also arise purely due to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, excessive UV light exposure, and many other possibilities.
It is quite difficult to ascertain exactly what triggers your complaint given the symptoms that are not typical. Therefore, we recommend that you go directly to see your doctor or dermatologist. That way, you can provide the best treatment for your condition according to the cause. If the doctor suspects a serious condition, it may also be that the doctor will direct you to undergo an allergy test, skin biopsy, or other supporting tests.
At this time, what you need to do so the complaint doesn't spread is:
Compress the painful bump area
Avoid pressing, rubbing, or scratching excessive bumps that appear so as not to feel pain
Bathing cleanly and diligently, use antiseptic soap
Wear clothing that is clean, not tight, the material is not rough, and is replaced periodically
Do not exchange personal items carelessly with others
If indeed in your environment a lot of mosquitoes, use mosquito repellent so as not to be bitten
Improve personal hygiene and the environment around you
Avoid yourself from substances that might cause you allergies or irritations
Hope this helps ...
