Watery Sores Appear After The Use Of Wound Plasters?
why is it that every time I get a wound I cover it with handiplast, the one around the wound is clenched like a blister, and it’s watery and itchy,
Hello Fitri, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Itchy and watery sores that appear after applying the plaster are most likely because you have an allergy to the adhesive in the plaster. This condition is known as allergic contact dermatitis. To overcome this, you should no longer use the same wound plaster. You can try to find a bandage or adhesive that is labeled hypoallergenic if you want to cover your wound with a bandage.
Meanwhile, to deal with allergies in your current skin, you can apply a cream containing 1% hydrocortisone. Apply a thin layer on the itchy area 2-3 times a day. Do not use for other itchy lesions and use up to 7 days.
If the itching persists or gets worse, you should immediately consult a dermatologist.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
