Soap Allergy On The Fingers.?
Hello doctor. I am a quint, 26 years old. I have a soap allergy in my hands, especially my index and middle fingers. Both fingers are now super dry and very thin skin. Until I found it hard to do a finger scan because it was unreadable. Is there any medicine so that the condition of my finger skin can return to normal again? Thank you doctor
Allergies can be caused by various causes, such as soap allergy. If indeed you are allergic to soap, you can try replacing with other brands. In addition it is important to maintain the hygiene of the finger area, do not scratch if itching, and it is important that the finger is not exposed to laundry soap / dishes for a while.
If your skin is dry and thin, then there are a few tips you can do for example
use a moisturizer on the fingers. Use a moisturizer after bathing, or after washing your hands
if your hands feel itchy, you can apply ice cubes or cold water to the itchy area
keep the area of the finger skin hygiene
use soap that says hypoallergenic (lower chance of allergies)
Temporarily avoid exposure to dish washing soap / clothes
Do not smoke
Usually thin skin can still thicken when treated properly, and the condition of the humidity is maintained. However, if you are experiencing severe allergies, then you need a direct examination from a skin specialist doctor, so your doctor can examine your condition further and provide appropriate treatment. Do not use just any medicine.
