الجلد في طرف إبهامي جاف ومشقق ويؤلمني. ما الذي يمكنني فعله للتعافي؟

إجابة من لورنس إي غيبسون، (دكتور في الطب)

يتوقف علاج جفاف الجلد على السبب المؤدي إلى هذه الحالة. فعلى سبيل المثال، إذا كنت تغسل الأطباق بالماء الساخن بشكل متكرر، فيجب ارتداء قفازات. أو إذا كنت تغسل يديك عادةً بصابون من نوع قاسٍ على الجلد، مسببٍ لجفاف البشرة، فيجب استبداله بنوع ألطف إن أمكن، واشطف يديك جيدًا.

ابدأ في علاج أناملك بتغطية التشققات بضمادات سائلة، وترطيب يديك أكثر من مرة يوميًا، وخصوصًا بعد غسلها مباشرةً. واستخدم مرطبًا عالي اللزوجة مثل سيرافي أو يوسيرين أو سيتافيل.

قد يساعد أيضًا استخدام كريم أكثر كثافة أو ذي قاعدة زيتية أو هلام نفطي (فازلين، مرهم مرمم، وغيرهما) لعلاج الجلد المصاب عند النوم. كذلك يمكن وضع مرطب على جلد الأنامل الجافة المتشققة عند النوم، وتغطيتها بقفازات قطنية أو شاش وإحكام وضعه بشريط لاصق.
