The Cause Of Fingers Aching After The Use Of Plaster?
Hello, so a few days ago my finger was wound near the nail, then I plastered. After 2 days I opened the plaster due to itching, I let it stand, and now my finger skin is dry (not on the wound), like changing the skin but peeling a little, there is a protruding yellow color and very sore when bent and only 1 finger (there is a plaster mark) it’s been quite a while with itching. Why is this? Before, I often used this band-aid but it was fine. Please answer, thank you in advance …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, what tape do you use? Are there certain compositions in the plaster?
The use of plaster in most people will not cause a negative impact on the skin. However, in some sensitive people, contact with the plaster can trigger inflammation, either due to allergies or irritation. Inflammation is the possibility that makes you feel itchy, sore, peeling skin, swelling, and also yellowish. Often, this condition is harmless and will improve by itself after your skin is no longer in contact with the plaster. In the medical realm, allergy or irritation due to substances that come into contact with the skin is called contact dermatitis.
You can do the following efforts first:
Remove the tape, and do not use it again. Don't hold the finger skin that has a complaint with dirty hands. Don't scratch, slough off, or squeeze the finger skin that has a complaint. trigger allergies or irritants, for example detergents, latex, etc. Do not carelessly administer drugs on the fingers without doctor's advice. Some other possible causes of your complaint, such as fungal, bacterial, seborrheic dermatitis, or other infections can also be an evaluation before giving treatment. It could also, the doctor will direct you to undergo an allergy test to determine the right diagnosis.
Hope this helps ...
