Spots Like Pimples On The Chest And Feels Itchy?
Afternoon, I want to ask. At first there was a rash around the chest, itching. The longer it widens and looks like a zit. Then began to appear also around the face. What disease?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Symptoms of itchy rash on the chest and face can be caused by several conditions, for example:
1. Seborrheic dermatitis
is a skin disorder caused by the activity of the oil glands in several places in the body. Complaints are marked by the appearance of nodules to red patches and rough skin and can continue as a scab that smells bad and feels itchy. The most common locations for seborrheic dermatitis include the back, face, forehead, armpits, groin, and upper chest.
2. Fungal infections
Tinea corporis is a dermatophyte fungal infection that attacks the torso area. Skin disorders due to fungal infections have the characteristics of redness, bordered firmly with the edges that are more active and reddish than the middle (the middle part heals first), scaly, has a circular shape.
3. Insect bite reactions
Is an immune reaction to the skin due to bites and contact with insects. Complaints in the form of itching, discomfort, pain, redness, tenderness, warmth or swelling in the area of the body bitten at a location that is generally not covered by clothes.
4. Pityriasis rosea
It is a disease characterized by redness of the skin which rises on the surface of the skin and is accompanied by itching. What is typical of this disease is that initially there will appear a rash that is quite large in size usually in the trunk area, then the next 2-3 are followed by another small rash around the initial rash.
5. Morbili or measles
Morbili is a disease caused by the Measles virus.
Initial symptoms include fever, weakness, symptoms of the upper respiratory tract (runny nose, cough), and red eyes. On the fourth day of fever, usually a thick red rash that starts on the head of the hair's forehead border area, on
behind the ears, and spreads down to the face, body, extremities, and reach the feet on the third day.
Prickly heat or called miliaria can also attack adults, especially in summer or in humid climates. Miliaria is formed when sweat glands are blocked due to sweat on the skin. Complaints include small nodules protruding from the surface of the skin to reddish nodules. In some cases also experience itching which is quite annoying. Adults generally experience miliaria in the skin folds and areas that rub against clothes.
In skin diseases it is very important to do a direct physical examination by a doctor, because the description of skin disorders is very helpful for doctors to determine the possible causes. Therefore, if the complaints have not diminished, you should do further consultation with a doctor. Treatment will depend on the final diagnosis of the disease, which can be oral, topical, to invasive. Do not hesitate to consult directly with your doctor to get the right treatment. Avoid excessive scratching of skin lesions, and keep yourself clean to prevent the condition from getting worse.
That's all, hope you can help.
