The Area Near The Ankle Is Super Dry So It Bleeds
Hello doc, good evening .. I want to ask what medicine should I use huh? The area near my left ankle was very dry … So it caused irritation and bleeding. If the wound has dried, it can bleed 2-3 days later dock, because the feet are active while the condition is still very dry.
Hello Viona, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Dry skin in various locations of the body, including around the ankles can occur due to various causes including:
Effect of weather
Rubbing the skin is too strong
Use of soap that is not suitable
Lack of fluid intake
Certain medical conditions such as dermatitis or psoriasis
To handle it properly certainly needs to know the exact cause. Therefore it is necessary to do checks on your skin. A direct physical examination as well as additional checks required for certain conditions will provide a conclusion regarding the possible cause of your complaint.
For now things you can do are:
Keep your body clean
Bathing with sufficient frequency and length not too long
Drink enough water and rest
Use a soap that contains moisturizer
Use the appropriate skin moisturizer
Consumption of fruits and vegetables as a source of vitamins that help maintain healthy skin
If complaints continue to occur immediately consult your doctor or dermatologist so that further examination and treatment can be done.
