Causes And Ways To Deal With Itching All Over The Body That Never Heal?
Hello! In the past month I have suffered from unbearable itching in all parts of the body, at first I thought it was just an ordinary itch but over time my skin blistered and spots appeared. I have tried various ointments but until now there has been no change. At certain times it will feel unbearable itching in every part of my body. A few of my questions, I hope the doctor can provide an explanation of the disease I experienced and how to overcome it. Thank you.
Thank you for the question.
Very severe itching on almost the entire body, accompanied by spots and blisters may indicate you have atopic dermatitis (eczema). This condition is a type of atopic disease, which is also prone to occur in people with asthma or allergic rhinitis. The originator usually comes from a combination of genetic (hereditary) and environmental factors, which makes your skin moisturized and more sensitive to allergies, irritants, and infections so they are easily inflamed. Not only itching, spots, and blisters, the skin of patients with atopic dermatitis will often also appear dry, reddish, crusty, swollen, peeling, scaly, thickened, and easily stained when scratched.
In addition to atopic dermatitis, itching accompanied by spots and blisters all over your body as you are currently experiencing may also be caused by other factors, such as scabies, chicken pox, seborrheic dermatitis, fungal infections, allergies, insect bites, contact dermatitis, psoriasis, drug side effects , etc.
The question now is, have you ever checked your complaints to the doctor?
If not, then this is the time. Check yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist skin and genitals so that your complaints can be identified possible causes, namely by interviews, physical examinations, or supporting tests, such as allergy tests, blood tests, to skin biopsy. Depending on the cause, later your complaint can be handled differently.
For now, do it first:
Don't scratch excessive skin, even if itchy
To reduce itching, apply calamine lotion or sprinkle salicyl powder on your itchy skin
Take a clean and regular bath using mild soap and moisturizer
Wear loose clothing, the material is soft, also absorbs sweat
Keep yourself away from substances that are prone to trigger allergies or irritations
Do not carelessly exchange personal belongings with others
No stress, anxiety or excessive panic
Do not carelessly take drugs or supplements without doctor's advice
Be more diligent in drinking water, and reduce the consumption of foods that trigger itching (for example eggs, seafood, and nuts)
Keep yourself clean and your environment, and always live a healthy lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
