The Burning Sensation Accompanied By Pain In The Skin Of The Upper Arm Inside After Being Exposed To Hot Weather?
Hello, good evening. I want to ask, this morning I did basketball at school around 8 to 9 hours. After finishing the exercise, the skin on my inner arm felt very sore and red. I tried to compress it with ice, and now it still hurts a little. thank you
Hello Putrimega, thank you for asking.
First you have to make sure first that redness occurs only on the skin or also accompanied by pain and swelling in the structure under the skin. Redness accompanied by pain may occur due to:
scratches or abrasions. At the time of exercise you may not realize that there is friction on your skin resulting in sores that cause redness and pain. Injuries that only occur limited to the skin epidermis may not be accompanied by bleeding but can be red and painful.
allergic reaction to an ingredient
redness of the skin can also be part of an injury to deeper structures, such as muscles or tendons. This is possible because you have just exercised. Injury to the tendon can result in significant pain and impaired muscle function.
You can try to overcome the pain with cold compresses like you do, compress every few hours. Try not to do heavy activities that require arm muscles. Apply topical pain medication to the location of pain. You can also take paracetamol or ibuprofen to reduce pain. If after 24-48 hours the pain does not decrease or actually increase, then immediately contact a doctor so that further testing can be done. Thus our short answer, hopefully helps. Regards.
