Water Fleas And Ingrown Toenails?
.rnInitially this happened to my father, his feet were indeed affected by water fleas and neglected to be treated, it has been happening for a long time. If it’s too sore, then ointment 88 is given. My father’s finger is also because it’s too heavy to lift and maybe dirty, at first it was just like infertility but eventually became ingrown. Invited to the doctor did not want. How do you handle it yourself? My father has a pimple on the back of his neck like a pimple or a boil, there is pus and now it’s dry when you look at it. Not treated too, my father is the most lazy to seek treatment. And now my mother is also experiencing the same thing, but it’s in the leg, if my father only 1, but in my mother initially 1 but grew several. I’ve been treated, when I checked, the doctor said that the puskesmas doctor was okay, checked blood sugar, etc. there were no problems either. My mother’s uric acid went down. Well, my mother was given some ointment, but my mother’s legs became swollen. Why is that? Treatment last Monday. My mother does work in a place that passes through a dirty place, there is muddy on the road and also a lot of cows, buffalo, etc. What does it affect? Why is that? I want treatment again but my mother’s ointment has not run out. Thank you

Infections in the foot area, including those caused by fungi (water fleas) and ingrown toenails usually indicate poor hygiene. Especially for ingrown toenails (paronichia), this condition is also caused by the habit of cutting the nails too deep, causing the nails to grow piercing into the skin and causing injuries. These wounds can also be a way for bacteria to enter, causing the fingers to become red, swollen, painful, and also festering.
The purulent lump on the back of the neck is the most common cause of infection. Causes of infection can vary, ranging from bacteria, viruses, fungi, or others. Some of the possibilities are folliculitis, acne, warts, herpes zoster, impetigo, erysipelas, abscess, and so on. In addition to infection, lumps in the neck may also appear due to lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes), lipomas, sebaceous cysts, dermoid cysts, cancer, and so on.
Meanwhile, painful swelling in the legs can be caused by infection, rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to rheumatism), gouty arthritis (arthritis due to uric acid), fish eye (clavus), contact dermatitis, tumors, and so on.
We recommend that your father and mother check their complaints directly to the doctor. Through direct inspection and palpation, doctors can identify the cause of their complaints and determine the appropriate treatment according to the diagnosis of the disease. In addition to medication, the doctor may also perform surgery to treat existing lumps or swelling. If needed, the doctor may also perform further tests, such as laboratory tests, x-rays, or tissue biopsies.
Meanwhile, your father and mother should do the following tips first:
Take care of personal hygiene: Take regular baths 2x a day using antiseptic soap Wear clean clothes and footwear Do not exchange clothes or footwear with others Avoid pressing swelling and lumps by force Keep your immune system healthy by eating healthy and nutritious, getting enough rest, being diligent exercise, and avoid stress Hope it helps ya ..
