Treatment Of Blisters Due To Scratching Of The Hands And Feet?
I want to ask, my skin is sensitive every time it is bitten by an insect that is a mosquito that I scratch directly and without being aware of the blisters immediately, the blisters go everywhere where I get bitten by a mosquito like that and people usually say it’s sweet blood or a type of skin that is too sensitive I didn’t get to the point because my leg and hand area was severe, please enlighten me, thank you 😊
Hello, thanks for the question.
The condition where the skin feels itchy after being bitten by an insect is called prurigo. This condition is widely known by ordinary people as sweet blood. Sweet blood itself actually does not exist in medical terms. Prurigo itself is characterized by reddish nodules or bumps, swelling, itching, and can spread to other skin areas. Scratching the nodules can cause blisters and secondary infections in the skin area. Apart from insect bites, prurigo can also be caused by certain health problems such as having allergic diseases, dermatitis, or stress. Skin lesions that are formed usually will cause black marks on the skin. To reduce itching, you should avoid scratching the area of skin lesions, cold compresses on the area of itchy skin, and avoid the trigger factors for the onset of lesions. If the complaint does not improve, you should consult a doctor for a thorough examination. Handling will be adjusted to the cause of the complaint. Your doctor may prescribe topical or oral medications to reduce complaints. We recommend that you still do a healthy lifestyle and avoid risk factors.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
