Can Salty Foods Cause Itching?
, lately I feel a pretty intense itching on my skin, itching has been going on for ± 3 weeks, when to dotker, the doctor said maybe I was allergic, but as far as I know, I do not have any allergies. I from the feet, hands, stomach, even to the back, itching spread to the other body when scratched. There are also black bruises on some parts of the hill that I have scratched. However, in recent days I have reduced the salt content in the food I cooked and it turns out that the itching is slightly reduced. Does reducing these salty foods have the effect of reducing itching? Or it turns out I’m allergic to salty? Thank you
