Ringworm - not only infectious disease
- A disease that in most cases can not be cured - it runs independently in restoring immunity. But sometimes itching at the pink lichen becomes so strong that no medical assistance is indispensable, in this case, doctors often prescribe creams and ointments.
What determines the symptoms
Severity of the symptoms of pink lichen depends on a number of reasons. First - this state of immunity: the more the immune system is weakened, the harder and more enduring the illness. In these patients to the main diseases (pityriasis rosea) is often associated infection and pustules appear on the body. Therefore, great importance is the strengthening of the immune system and the timely treatment of acute diseases and exacerbation of chronic diseases.
Second, much depends on the attitude of the body's allergic - in people prone to allergic reactions, rash lasts longer, it tends to spread and more severe itching. Often pink shingles

occurs and long runs on the background food and drug allergies.
No less important is the condition of the nervous system. So, people nervous, excitable all manifestations of the disease increase, especially their itch and disturb the ability to infect others. In addition to the rash of these patients worried about insomnia, anxiety

And sometimes depression.
Finally, the severity and duration of illness depend on the state of small blood vessels. With increased permeability and fragility of their walls rash more intense and lasts longer. Largely condition of the walls of blood vessels depends on vitamin deficiency, such as ascorbic acid.

The main factors in the treatment of pink lichen are still not external, but internal funds. It is strengthening the immune system

(hardening, active lifestyle, exercise), nutrition (with the exception of food, irritating the skin - spicy, fatty, sugary, sweet, fried, smoked, etc.), prompt treatment of foci of infection (chronic tonsillitis, adenoiditis carious teeth and so on), bringing order to the central nervous system (avoidance of stress, emotional and high information loads, soothing agents, insomnia, and so on).
Of great importance is personal hygiene - daily shower instead of a bath (bathe undesirable), wearing only underwear made of natural fabrics, not contracted, and does not injure the skin.
But sometimes this is not enough, the rash spreads rapidly and begins to disturb the patient or kept for a long time. In some cases, the cause of the disease is a long-term adherence of bacterial infection - by scratching itchy spots pink lichen microtrauma through the skin fall of bacterial infections and abscesses on the skin appear. This disease can occur very long. Children, especially, are prone to allergic processes in the skin, the rash is pink lichen often begin to get wet, and thus also may be made to the irritated skin infection.
In all these cases, the appointed external treatment of diseases in the form of ointments, creams or boltushek. The primary goal of such treatment - removal of edema, itching and soak, as well as the elimination of complications such as pustular rash.
When you soak appointed mash that dried elements of rash and reduce itching in this area. If the rash is very itchy, elements of it quickly spread to healthy skin, the dermatologist may prescribe hormone ointment. Almost all of these ointment is composed of antibacterial agents, as their constituent glucocorticoid hormones are able to dramatically reduce the local immunity. That is why hormonal ointments (Lorinden, ftorokort and so on) yourself is not recommended. When uncontrolled use of hormonal ointments any infection can become chronic, and then cure it will be very difficult. Hormonal ointments are good only in the hands of a dermatologist who knows when and how they can be applied.
When besides the basic elements disease pustules also administered ointment with antibacterial agents, usually antibiotics. And these ointments own use is not necessary, as well as antibiotics can reduce the local immunity. In addition, the antibiotic may develop addictive and pustular rash will only intensify.
Treatment of prolonged or complicated by depriving Gibert pink are best left to a specialist - a dermatologist, but in this case it is possible to avoid the unpleasant consequences of this disease.
