Biduran Called Danger If It Is Marked By What Symptoms?
Hello, I’m a 30-year-old mother. Right now I’m experiencing biduran, I also don’t know exactly what causes it because I know what I’m eating can already be consumed. And even the weather conditions do not affect, it’s just that suddenly I feel itching and bumps on the back of my hands and feet. At first I thought I was hit by a caterpillar’s hair, but the itchiness remained from the afternoon until the next day. Itching sometimes spreads and sometimes it moves .. Until the day I can’t sleep soundly … I do have a history of allergies, namely allergies to crabs and dust … and according to my mother as a child I was allergic to cold air, but as an adult I have never relapsed .. It has been almost 24 hours I felt itching that sometimes goes away and appears in several parts of the body. Dangerous? Because yesterday I was a bit weak, maybe due to the difficulty in sleeping late …
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Red itching on the itchy skin that you experience may be a hives (urticaria), also see from your description that has a history of allergies.
Urticaria is the body's response to the appearance of itchy red bumps caused by an allergic reaction. In addition to urticaria, allergic reactions can also be in the form of other symptoms that are mild such as watery eyes, runny nose, swelling in the eye area, face, lips, to severe symptoms such as tightness (asthma attacks, or swelling in the airways), and circulation failure. (anaphylactic shock). These symptoms can appear alone or in combination.
If an allergic reaction only shows urticaria as a symptom, it tends to be harmless, only the itching is uncomfortable.
However, if urticaria is accompanied by other allergic symptoms such as shortness of breath and failure of body circulation as mentioned above, of course this is dangerous and must be checked immediately at the nearest emergency room for help.
However, itchy red bumps on the body may not necessarily be urticaria, can also be caused by other things such as insect bites, fungal infections of the skin, parasitic infections of the skin, inflammation of the skin reaction due to contact with certain substances, etc.
For this reason, to be sure you should check with your doctor. If further tracking is needed, or further testing is needed to find out the substances that make you allergic, your general practitioner might consider referring you to a dermatologist according to the suspicion of the condition.
As for what you should do is:
Avoid consuming food or contacting any substances that you already know cause allergic reactions to you
Keep skin clean, take a bath at least 2x a day
Avoid scratching too hard on the itchy area
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
