The Back Of The Hand Feels Itchy After Being Exposed To Hot Water?
Good afternoon. 4 days ago I was exposed to hot water on the back of my hand, not too badly and now it’s also healed, yesterday I used bioplacenta topical medication. what I want to ask is how come now it looks like itchy, I like to have bumps but I don’t scratch for fear of why. Is there a solution, doctor? Thank you
Hello Ely, Thanks for the question.
Does the itching feeling accompanied by the appearance of a skin rash in the form of these bumps appear in the same area (scalding water) or in other areas? Hot water can cause skin burns of varying degrees of severity. When these sores heal, a sore feeling may appear in the surrounding area but generally does not cause a skin rash. Are you using any new soap or skin products? These symptoms may be caused by an allergic reaction or contact dermatitis (which is skin inflammation caused by contact with something). You can do the following suggestions:
avoid scratching the itchy part
apply a cold compress, use salicylic powder, or apply calamine lotion to relieve itching
keep this area of the scar clean
If this complaint does not improve or gets worse (for example, the skin rash spreads or turns into blisters), do not hesitate to consult a doctor immediately.
Hope this information is helpful.
