Why Does The Upper Chest Have Red And Sore Spots After Using Cold Powder?
In the afternoon, I thank God, it is better to have a sore throat and my fever is usually very hot and not hot. Then at night I felt itchy at the chest, then I scratched, and put on cold powder, in the morning I even added red and hot and sore when touched. Please answer whether it’s okay?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sore throat that comes with a common fever caused by infection, can occur in the throat (pharyngitis), tonsils (tonsillitis), or other structures around it. The causes of this infection can be many, for example viruses or bacteria. Not only that, an infection in this area can also make you experience coughing, phlegm throat, swollen tonsils, colds, tightness, nausea, muscle and joint pain, weakness, and many other complaints.
Complaints in your chest that feel itchy, reddish, hot, and sore may appear due to inflammation in the skin. This inflammation can also be triggered by infections (for example shingles, folliculitis, miliaria), contact dermatitis, insect or other animal bites, allergies, and so on. Contact with cold powder can also worsen complaints if you have an allergy to the components in the cold powder. Complaints in the chest that you feel can occur related to throat pain that you experience, or not.
If your complaint has arisen long enough (more than 3 days), we recommend that you don't let it. Go to the nearest health facility so that your complaint can be handled directly by a doctor, ENT specialist, or dermatologist. That way, your condition can improve after being given the right treatment.
The following initial steps you can also do:
Rest more and regularly Drink plenty of water Limit foods and drinks that are too cold, oily, spicy, and contain artificial sweeteners Limit talking or screaming too often Expand to eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C, brothful foods (not bersantan) Bathing clean and organized Use clothes that are clean, loose, made from cool, and also dry Do not exchange personal items with others Do not smear or sprinkle anything on the chest that has a complaint Does not also hold, exfoliate, scratch, or squeeze excessive chest that feels sore Hopefully help huh ..
