Causes Itching On The Skin Of The Stomach And Causes The Skin To Become Darker In Color?
HealthReplies.com, I want to first ask my stomach is clean without stains then suddenly itchy in my stomach, for how many days itchy I gave a balm because it was warm so the itching was reduced, suddenly my stomach was blue when it started out like varicose veins, eh long gradually turns black, why is that? Are they stretch marks, varicose veins or something? Can the black stain be removed? Thank you in advance 🙂
Hello Aldiii, Thank you for the question.
Have you checked with your doctor to find the cause of your itching complaint? Are you used to scratching this itchy area? If so, the formation of black spots on the itchy skin may be due to scratching. Scratching the skin can cause minor sores on the skin causing a local inflammatory reaction. This inflammatory reaction can cause the skin to become darker in color; this is a condition known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Apart from scratching the skin, the burning sensation produced by the balm on problem skin can also cause the same condition. However, of course to make sure you should consult with your doctor directly. Peruvian doctors ask your complaint further to find out the cause of itching on the skin. Itching of the skin can be caused by various conditions such as eczema, contact dermatitis, scabies, psoriasis, fungal infections, dry skin, and others. Direct examination by a doctor is needed to determine the cause so that the doctor can provide the right treatment for you. The doctor will also determine the cause of the black spots that appear.
Please protect yourself from scratching the itchy area and avoid using balsams. You can use salicylic powder or calamine lotion to relieve itching.
Hope this information helps you.
