Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Red and suppurating skin can be caused by a primary bacterial infection directly on the skin (pyoderma).
However, redness of the skin can also be caused by infections other than bacterial germs or other conditions, as a result of not being kept clean so that secondary infections occur by bacteria so that festering, such as:
Fungal infections of the skin Lice infections of the skin Congenital skin inflammation / atopic dermatitis Skin inflammation due to contact with certain substances that are not compatible with the skin Skin allergic reactions (urticaria) Prickly heat Insect bites etc. To find out the treatment for these conditions, of course, you must first know the basic cause of the disease. To ensure this, physical examination needs to be done beforehand even supporting examinations if needed. For that you should check yourself to a general practitioner first. If further tracking is needed, your doctor will also consider referring you to a dermatologist.
As for what you should do is:
Bathing at least 2 times a day Immediately change clothes when they are wet, for example by sweating. Do a contact test first before using large quantities of the product applied to your skin. You do this by applying a little product to the neck or back of the ear, and observe whether there is a reddish or itchy reaction afterwards. If there is, it means that the topical product is not suitable for use on your skin. Avoid consuming food or anything that is known to cause an allergic reaction to you
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
