Hello, Tirtabayu12, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Pus on the skin appears due to infection. Infection can arise due to poor hygiene conditions, the presence of "entry points" for bacteria into the skin, for example, there is a cut / scratch, or in people who have a low immune system. These infections can be bacterial infections, or due to other skin conditions (eg dermatitis / inflammation of the skin) or other infections (viruses, fungi, parasites) which are exacerbated by a bacterial infection. Infection of the skin can be superficial (on the surface of the skin) to deep (inside the skin). What often causes the appearance of pus on the surface of the skin are diseases such as: impetigo, folliculitis (infection of the hair follicles), furuncles / carbuncles (infection of the follicles that extend to the surrounding skin tissue), and ectima (sores with raised edges and covered with a scab). Meanwhile, deep skin infections are often caused by erysipelas, cellulitis, etc.


To determine the exact cause, a direct examination by a doctor is required to see the form of the skin disorder, its distribution, and the history of the disease. In addition, supporting examinations can be done if necessary, such as blood tests to culture tests if the infection is severe, does not go away with treatment, or recurs.


You should never touch, touch, or squeeze skin disorders especially those with pus because they can aggravate the condition, increase infection, and expand the infection. Infection that spreads can reach under the skin to the blood vessels to spread throughout the body. For that, immediately consult your doctor to get the right treatment. Keep your skin clean by bathing 2x a day with soap that matches your skin, avoid touching the sore skin, especially if you don't wash your hands, don't apply anything before going to the doctor.


That's all, hopefully it's useful.


Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
