Sorry I want to ask. R nMy neighbor has a clear liquid that smells a little fishy, ​​but he doesn’t feel anything (like itching, or pain). The liquid keeps coming out even though it’s not much … can you please explain why and how solve it?

1 Answer:

Hi Arivi,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Need to clarify, where does the liquid come out? Is it from the pores on the scalp? Or is there a certain wound that drains the fluid?


A clear, foul-smelling discharge from the head can indicate inflammation. This inflammation often occurs because it is triggered by contact with an irritating substance, or it could be because you are allergic to certain substances that come into contact with the scalp. Some substances that are prone to trigger this complaint are hair dye, shampoo, conditioner, head covering, or other inappropriate hair care ingredients. In the medical realm, this condition is also known as contact dermatitis. Not only is it watery and smells bad, this condition can also make the scalp become red, itchy, sore, peeling, swollen, and various other complaints arise.


Apart from contact dermatitis, your complaint may also occur due to other triggers, for example scalp infections (often due to fungi), atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, psoriasis, drug side effects, and so on.


You should ask your neighbor to check his complaint directly to a doctor or a dermatologist. By evaluating the condition of his head directly, doctors generally can determine the best treatment to deal with it. If it is true that the complaint occurs due to contact dermatitis, treatment is generally sufficient by administering topical drugs (topical drugs or shampoos) or oral medications, such as anti-inflammatories, antibiotics (if secondary infection by bacteria is suspected), and so on.


In the meantime, your neighbor should first do the following:

Wash hair well 1 time a day with the right shampoo according to your hair type
Do not touch your head excessively, let alone use dirty hands
Do not use dirty headgear or exchange with others
If you sweat excessively, take a shower immediately and dry your hair
Do not wear headgear that is too thick and made from hot
Do not use any medication unless directed by a doctor
Does not modify excessive hair

Hope it helps ..
