Causes And Treat Itching Until Red Bumps?
Mlm, I am 16 years old. I was on vacation outside the city during the holidays. My skin suddenly itched like allergies. I took medicine for allergies and recovered, but a few days later itching appeared again like red bumps on my hands and feet, I guess why. please help, thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itching accompanied by reddish bumps on the skin of the hands and feet, in addition to being caused by allergies, can also occur due to:
Insect or other animal bites
Irritation, for example due to excessive friction, contact with water that is of poor quality, the use of soap, detergents, or other skin care products
Contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritative or allergenic substances)
Infections, such as tinea pedis, tinea manum, scabies, folliculitis, impetigo, Singapore flu, chicken pox
Others, for example seborrheic dermatitis, drug eruption, and so on
You should not take anti-allergic drugs carelessly before it is confirmed by your doctor that your condition does occur due to allergies. Because, if it turns out that it isn't allergies that sparked your complaints, of course the handling will be different. Check with your doctor first or skin specialist doctor to be given the correct management. As an initial treatment step, it's safer for you to do the following trick:
Apply calamine lotion on itchy hands and feet
Do not scratch your hands and feet excessively, even though it feels itchy
Keep your hands and feet out of contact with irritative or allergenic substances
Always keep yourself clean and your environment
Be diligent in washing your hands with antiseptic soap
Don't worry, panic, or get scared too much
Hope this helps ...
