Skin Exfoliation

This problem is common during the Hajj season, especially among people with obesity or diabetic. The skin becomes inflamed and redness occurs in the folds of the thighs, and sometimes in the armpits and under the breasts.
Prevention of Exfoliation:
  • Good ventilation of the folds in the body, such as the upper thighs and the armpits.
  • Paying attention to personal hygiene, and using appropriate ointments on the body before walking.
  • Sprinkle baby powder after sweating.
When injured, ointments for this problem can be used while washing the affected area with soap and water before applying the medicine repeatedly.
  • ​Keeping the area dry and wearing cotton clothes to prevent friction.
