The Cause Of Red Rashes On The Legs Are Widening
Hello Doctor, I want to ask my wife that there is a red rash on the lower thigh to the upper calf, the left knee and the right leg. Feels itchy and painful when scratched. And now it’s getting wider. That’s because of what and what the medicine is …
Hello Katsiful, Thank you for your question.
For how long has this symptom been present and was there a trigger? Red rashes on the skin accompanied by itching can be caused by:
contact dermatitis, either allergic contact dermatitis or irritant contact dermatitis
The initial treatment your wife can do is not to scratch the itchy skin, cold compress the rash or use salicyl powder or calamine lotion to help relieve itching. In addition, please advise your wife not to use other skin products in the area and always maintain a clean bed. If for the next 2 days the symptoms persist or get worse, please immediately check with the nearest general practitioner so that the doctor can examine the rash directly to make sure before determining further treatment.
Hopefully this information helps you.
