Small Lumps Filled With Water After Bathing Or Washing Clothes?
, I want to ask about my hands so that time after taking a shower or washing my hands there will be a small lump, even a rather large one, then I broke the lump, suddenly my hand became itchy and then finally because I couldn’t stand it I scratched it and it became shriveled. Then how is it? What is the disease and how to avoid it and what is the cure..rnThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are several possibilities that can cause itchy bumps on the skin. If the lump appears after you shower or wash clothes, then it may be the result of an allergic reaction or irritation when the skin on your hands comes into contact with soap or detergent. In the medical world, this condition is known as contact dermatitis. In general, patients will experience small, itchy bumps. However, this nodule can also enlarge or spread, it can even peel and swell. If these lumps are broken or forcibly scratched, then of course they can break and eventually leave annoying scabs or scars.
Apart from contact dermatitis, the itchy bumps that you experience may also appear due to infections (eg folliculitis, tinea manum, scabies, cutaneous candidiasis), drug eruptions, atopic dermatitis, insect bites, and so on.
It needs to be clarified, are there still itchy bumps that appear at this time? Or, is it just a scab?
If there are still itchy bumps that appear, it means that the inflammation in your hands has not been completed. Check directly with your doctor to identify the trigger for the inflammation. If it is suspected that the trigger is contact dermatitis, the doctor can perform allergy tests to confirm it. Furthermore, treatment can be given by administering anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-itch drugs, or antibiotics (if a bacterial infection is suspected).
However, if you only see scabs on your hands due to scratching or your previous act of breaking the bumps, then this condition will usually go away on its own as the skin regenerates. You only need to keep the skin of your hands clean, namely by regularly bathing and washing hands. Avoid contact between hands with allergenic or irritating substances. Also avoid exposure to substances that can make you allergic, such as cold, dust mites, seafood, and so on. Avoid the habit of forcibly peeling the scabs so as not to cause scars that are difficult to remove. Make sure you eat nutritious foods and drink more to nourish the skin from the inside.
If the complaint does not improve with the above efforts, don't hesitate to check with a skin and genital specialist, okay?
I hope this helps.
