Causes Of Itching All Over The Body?
good afternoon, I experienced itching all over my body, especially the hands and feet. my brother said it was allergic, but I have no history of allergies. how is that? please answer
Hello Widya, thank you for asking.
Itching of the skin is one of the most common symptoms of a skin disorder. Itching can be caused by allergies, microorganism infections, autoimmune diseases, even by diseases that do not originate from the skin, but rather by diseases of other organs. Generally itching caused by infection or irritation will be local or limited to a certain area of skin. Overall itching is more likely to be caused by an allergic reaction.
The thing that you should know is, allergy triggers consist of so many reasons. Almost all particles on earth, can cause allergies, but of course only in certain individuals. People often assume that allergies are triggered by food, dust, mites, or other materials that often come into contact with the skin. In fact, a lot of other particles can cause allergies. For example, metals, latex, certain chemicals, wool, cotton, and so on. That is why, often people do not know that they have allergies or do not know what particles that trigger allergies.
In addition, not all allergies arise from childhood. Some people have allergies that arise during adulthood. That is because after repeated exposure for years to a particle, the body forms an allergic reaction to it.
You can consult a dermatologist about this. The doctor will assess your condition, whether it is caused by allergies or not.
Thus my explanation, hopefully you can be helped. Regards.
