White Patches On The Hands That Felt Itchy?
Good evening, want to ask. My mother initially had normal hands. Then because a week my mother went to the garden to do gardening, her hands continued to itch. And now his hands appeared white patches. I wonder what the disease is and how to cure it?
Good afternoon Sony, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
White patches that arise on your mother's hands can be caused by several possible diseases such as:
Vitiligo Ptyriasis alba Panu Hypopigmentation (reduction of skin color) after inflammation of leprosy and some other possibilities. To ensure which disease is currently being suffered by your mother, you should bring your mother to seek treatment directly with a dermatologist, because in general the treatment of new skin diseases can be decided after direct evaluation.
For now, do not use any medicine on the white patch on the hand until there is a prescription from the dermatologist that your mother has visited. Also avoid scratching these spots because they can cause infected sores later on. Also take care of the cleanliness of the skin of your mother's hands by washing your hands if they feel the hands are dirty. Also use gloves when gardening to avoid being exposed to insects or plants that can cause skin diseases.
I hope this helps.
