Am I Healthy?
I experienced itching all over my body which my friends had previously experienced. This lasted from April, the itching did not feel hot, it looked like prickly heat and sometimes grew like a red rash, over time this itch was cured, although sometimes it still itchy but not as painful as it was before, just a normal itch. But the itchy marks left marks like black spots on the skin and it was enough to make me feel inferior when wearing short sleeves. This itching is also around the buttocks and genitals which also leaves scars like red spots on the genitals but does not arise. I am a boy aged 18. nIs that a disease? Is it a type of eczema?
Hello Hanfar, thank you for the question.
A rash or redness and spots on the skin can be caused by a variety of conditions, including:
Allergy to food, drugs, weather conditions, or dust, mites and animal hair. This condition usually occurs when the trigger appears, but if you are not near the trigger, the rash will usually disappear. Hla this can cause redness, itching, burning to swelling all over the body
Viral infections such as measles and chickenpox, this can cause a rash, fever, and pain in the joints of the body
atopic eczema or atopic dermatitis
Contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin caused by touching or contacting the skin with substances that cause allergies or irritation
miliaria or prickly heat
Yeast infection, can occur rash, dry and scaly skin, and occurs usually in the folds of the body, such as the armpits, groin and groin
Impetigo or infection of the skin by Staphylococcus and streptococcus
Scabies, or a mite infection, can usually cause body rashes and is spread from one person to another through direct contact and shared clothing or garment.
The above conditions must be treated thoroughly so as not to cause more severe complications. Especially for the condition of scabies or eczema, if not handled thoroughly, the mites will still be able to reappear and complaints will not be resolved.
my advice at this time, see a dermatologist for a thorough examination. In addition, try not to scratch the rash, compress the rash with cold water to reduce the itching that occurs. In addition, multiply clean baths 2 times a day, use appropriate soap and avoid thick or very closed clothing, because it will cause the area to become damp and prone to fungal infections. If the complaints do not decrease, see the doctor immediately to get further treatment.
Hope this helps.
