Герпес на пальцах рук: может ли быть и как его лечить?Hello, dear readers! Jumped up herpes on the fingers? How could this happen and what to do with him now? Now everyone will know!

This week came to my familiar with these complaints that something was up, I can’t determine what exactly is most likely allergic to some or irritation from household chemicals, advise something from her.

Having carefully considered the rash, I told her: Yes it is herpes! How it got there and whether there can be it there at all? Let’s deal.

Could there be erisipela on the fingers?

As it turned out, maybe the above case is once again confirmed. When a friend heard my opinion, she thought, how could be infected. And, you know, what happened?

It turned out that in the past had the same problem in the lips and, most likely, due to careless handling she suffered sore hands.

Fingers – a relatively rare location of the viral rash. Often it is on the face, in the intimate area or on the body (if it is shingles).

Hands it appears usually because of samsarajade – man alone carries the virus from one body part to another. But how can this happen?

Methods of infection

Герпес на пальцах рук: может ли быть и как его лечить?For example, a classic case in which there is infection: a man with a sore near your mouth touches her hands, while the hands have mikroranki or major damage.

Through them, the virus can easily penetrate the skin and begin to multiply in this epithelial tissue.

It is the process of reproduction of the virus causes a rash, and an ideal place for breeding is the human epithelium.

Therefore, the probability of samsarajade increases, if hands are present dermatological problems such as:

  • eczema;
  • atopic dermatitis;
  • atopic dermatitis;
  • wounds with violation of skin integrity.

The infection can provoke not only the first type of viruses provocateurs (aka causes sores on the lips). What other kinds of these viruses infect hands?

On the fingers or between them can isnegative the following types of herpes viruses:

  • a simple first type mentioned in the article;
  • simple second, provoking a rash on the genitals (perhaps you can guess how the infection occurs);
  • the third type or the virus of chicken pox which is more common in children than adults.

My friend was anxious to know what the herpes virus she was amazed, so I advised her to undergo the ELISA that looks for antibodies to these viruses in human blood.

It passed and it turned out that I was right – she was diagnosed with antibodies to the virus provocateurs.

Symptoms: how to recognize the problem and to distinguish it from an allergic rash and irritation?

The symptoms are almost always standard and are developing the same pattern:

  • the skin between fingers itchy, red, swollen, inflamed;
  • sharply on her rash appears as small blisters 1-2 mm in diameter;
  • gradually the blisters Mature, turbid, burst (all this is accompanied by pain, itching, burning);
  • formed after the sores after a few days and crust over in about a week to shoot.

My friend, the rash went between the index and middle fingers. It was on the skin between the toes, causing to move my hand normally could not.

The rash itched so much that was not allowed to sleep, but to scratch it is by no means impossible, because the contents of the pimples are very contagious. Consider the symptoms, you can photos, be sure to do that and remember what it looks like infection.

If you have allergies, for example, a rash is not so – it is small, red or white. The irritation on the skin immediately appear weeping sores (often) and peeling. That’s the difference between the above sore from the rest.

What treatment is required if symptoms of girisindeki appeared on the fingers?

Before applying the ointment, it is desirable to dip his hands in the soda bath or a bath with a weak solution of potassium permanganate for 5-10 minutes. So rash prodezinfitsirovat, so that the ointment will act faster and more powerful.
  • If the situation is serious, then assigned antiviral tablets, such as Famvir or he needs therapy with valtrex. These drugs are toxic, so pregnant women and children up to 12 years old, they are contraindicated.
  • Antihistamine pills, for example, Zodak or claritin, can help relieve itching and inflamed, which arise due to allergic reactions to the virus.
  • If the disease is accompanied by fever or fever, then you should take Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen according to the instructions.
