Swelling Itching In The Groin?
Excuse me, want to ask dokBetis the right part in my right leg appears swollen and itchy, and when I squat the itching gets worse .. Already a few days the swelling began to increase under the previous swelling, is this dangerous?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions that you experience can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Mite or parasitic infection Allergic response to chemicals or clothing material Skin fungus infection Dermatitis Skin irritation Bacterial infection Lack of body hygiene
In general, this condition is not dangerous, although it will interfere with itching. However, because the causes and treatment can vary, we suggest that you should check yourself with a general practitioner or may go directly to a dermatologist to get a direct check. By looking directly at it, you can get useful information that might escape from ordinary observations, and thus, the handling can be more precise.
Meanwhile, you can reduce swelling and itching by compressing the itchy part with a cold compress, and sprinkling salicyl powder. Take care of your cleanliness and don't scratch too hard because it can cause further injury and infection. So, hopefully answering your question.
