The Swelling Of The Head Feels Itchy And Sore Peels Like Yellow Dandruff?
Good afternoon. I had red bumps on my head. Itching and burning. Continue to peel like dandruff but thick yellow. I wonder why?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a red rash, which feels itchy, sore, thickened, yellowed, and easily peels off in the head area can indicate an infection. One type of microorganism that causes the most common infections of the head is a dermatophyte fungus (tinea capitis). This fungus can be very easily transmitted, for example from other humans or animals, either through direct or indirect contact. Clinically, tinea capitis can be characterized by the appearance of a rash that is thickened, bruntusan, circular in shape, looks scaly, gray or reddish in color, which often feels itchy or sore, easily peels off, and also makes the hair in the surrounding area brittle, easy to fall off, easy broken, and went bald. Often too, this fungus is transmitted to other organs, such as the groin, hands, feet, genitals, torso, and so on.
In addition to dermatophyte fungal infections, various types of microorganisms, such as other fungi, bacteria, lice, or viruses can also trigger complaints like what you experience. It could also be that your various complaints arise due to causes other than infection, for example seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, drug eruptions, neurodermatitis, lichen planus, xerosis, contact dermatitis, and so on.
It needs further examination by a doctor to distinguish the various possibilities as mentioned above. Therefore, before the complaints spread or spread to those around you, you should check with your doctor or skin specialist early. That way, the doctor can give you the right treatment, including for example if further examinations are needed, such as biopsy, laboratory tests, allergy tests, and so on.
At this point, here are some suggestions you can take:
Wash your hair regularly 1 to 2 days, use a special anti-dandruff shampoo, rinse thoroughly Diligent bath Do not exchange headgear with other people Do not squeeze or force the bumps on the head, especially using dirty hands If your head feels sweaty, take a shower again Don't excessive modification of hair and scalp Drink more. Keep your immune system by regularly eating nutritious food, getting enough rest, and exercising more regularly.
