患上「湿疹」的人都有以下情况:
 
不小心抓破或磨破了患部,便会有液体渗出来,沾上袜子、拖鞋、毛巾等,不敢把袜子丢进洗衣机里和其他衣物一起清洗,也不让别人穿自己穿过的鞋子,担心「湿疹」透过该液体传染给家人。
 
事实上,「湿疹」真的会传染吗?
就让普健中医诊所在职医师王爱莲为大家解答。
 
原来,「湿疹」是西医的病名,而中医称之为「湿疮」或「浸淫疮」。「湿疮」的特征,在于不时让患者感到瘙痒,而一旦抓破患处,将会有液体渗出,可发生于身体各个部位,任何年龄及性别,夏季暑天时症状会更加明显。
 
那么,「湿疮」里的脓水,到底是如何形成,里面有什么成分,它会不会造成传染呢?
 
想象一下,有细菌入侵人体,白细胞便会与细菌开战,最终战后留下的“尸骸”便会化成脓水。所以,脓水中主要的成分就是死去的白细胞和死去的细菌,另外还有包括身体组织液、蛋白质等。
 
总结来说,「湿疮」并不是一种传染性的病症,所造成的脓水,也不会把「湿疮」传染给他人。
                                                                                                                                                      
 
 
 
 
 
Eczema is an overall skin condition that results in red and itchy patches on the skin. Anyone with Eczema will have at least one of the following symptoms:
 
When you accidentally scratch or fray the affected skin area, there will be some liquid that will leak out from the skin. Hence, you have to put on socks, slippers, towels, or others to absorb the liquid. Most importanrtly do not mix them with other clothes during the washing. Otherwise, the Eczema could have transmitted to other family members.
 
In all our doubts, is ''Eczema'' really contagious? Our Chinese physician TCM Ong from Pu Jian Chinese Medical Centre 普健中医诊所, will elaborate here.
 
In western medicine, it is called Eczema, where else in Chinese medicine, it is being called 'wet sores' or 'acne sore'. The characteristic of ''wet sores'' is that the patient will feel itchiness from time to time. Once the affected skin area is being scratched, there will be fluid exudation, which can occur all over the body of anyone. The symptoms will be more obvious during the hot and humid weather.
 
Now the other questions; how exactly does the pus in ''wet sores'' form, and what are the ingredients in it? Will it cause infection?
 
Imagine this; if bacteria are invading the human body, the white blood cells will fight the bacteria. After the fight, the bacteria 'corpses' will turn into pus. Therefore, the main content of the watery pus is dead white blood cells and dead bacteria, as well as our body tissue fluids and proteins.
 
To sum it all up, the 'wet sores' is not an infectious disease, and the pus that caused by it will not spread to others.
