The Right Knee Hurts With A Red And Itchy Rash?
Hello, I’m Prita, I’m 24 years old. I want to ask . Around 3 days ago. Appears bump like smallpox on my right thigh about 4 bumps. Then the day after that a red rash appeared on my knee accompanied by itching, burning heat and pain in my knee bones like being pricked. Then more red rashes around my thigh. When bathing it feels hot like it’s burning in my knee. Please help what symptoms I’m experiencing. Thank you 🙏🏻
Hello, thanks for the question, I will try to answer your question.
Rashes on the skin, redness, can contain fluid, burning sensation, and pain, as you experience, can generally be caused by several of the following.
Shingles, usually only affects one side of the body, according to the nerves affected. Pain that is felt is usually severe pain such as burning.
Varicella, generally affects the entire body
Impetigo, usually caused by a germ infection.
To find out the cause of the symptoms that you are experiencing, you should consult a dermatologist and a specialist in sex so that you get the right treatment. The doctor will ask questions and answers about complaints such as pain characteristics, characteristics of lesions that appear, accompanied by fever or weakness throughout the body or not, a history of immune system disorders, such as stress, cancer patients, HIV, use of immune system suppressing drugs , and others. The doctor will also conduct a thorough and specific physical examination on the area of the lesion, and if necessary can be carried out supporting examinations such as skin scrapings, examination under a microscope, laboratory tests, and others.
Some things you can do at home include:
Care for affected skin lesions, keep it clean
Take a bath with warm water and antiseptic soap to reduce itching
Cold compress and anti-itch liquid
Wear loose and soft clothes
Avoid covering the rash with tape or adhesive because it can cause irritation
Sufficient fluid needs
Eat nutritious foods
Immediately consult a doctor if the complaint is felt disturbing.
Thus, hopefully useful.
