Treatment For Scurvy?
Hello. In my knee the skin starts to become rough and itchy, and the skin looks like white, and this looks like scabies. I have treated it with various non-curative medicines (suicidal, 88 ointment, kalpanax, the last micoral ointment and tablets I use at once). And there are no results. Please if there is a cure, and how to cure it. Thank you
Hello Joko, thank you for the question.
Scabies or scabies is a skin infection disease caused by mites that cause itching complaints, especially at night, accompanied by black spots such as zits, and can spread throughout the body such as hands, feet, genitals, bodies, etc. This disease is a contagious disease, which is transmitted from direct or indirect contact, and is usually more common in:
Children, especially those living in dorms.
Sexually active adults.
People who live in nursing homes, are being treated in hospitals,
People with weak immune systems, such as people with HIV, cancer, chemotherapy patients, etc.
For its own treatment using a special ointment that must be used by the doctor's instructions to kill the mites. Rough, itchy, and whitish skin can be caused by several other diseases, such as fungal infections (phlegm) or pityriasis versicolor, pityriasis alba, vitiligo, and others. Tinea versicolor usually occurs in locations of the body that sweat a lot such as the back, folds of the skin, etc. If treatment has been done and the complaints are not reduced, you should consult a dermatologist, the doctor will conduct a direct examination while looking at the characteristics of the lesions that arise so that treatment can be more appropriate. It is better to avoid scratching the itchy area of the skin, cold compresses if it feels very itchy, use a skin moisturizer to keep skin moist, increase fluid consumption, maintain clean body skin, eat healthy and nutritious food, get enough rest, and avoid stress.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
