Causes Of Itching All Over The Body?
I want to ask, I have itchy skin disease, almost the whole body. If it continues to be scratched, it will cause blisters and then fester, I have already gone to the doctor for about one month but still doesn’t recover, does the doctor have any medicine or suggestions for me to recover?
Good evening, thanks for the question
The cause of itching that is experienced at this time needs to be obtained more information including the main complaints, trigger factors, other accompanying symptoms, and most importantly is direct observation of abnormalities in the skin by a doctor. Through direct assessment of skin disorders, the doctor is almost able to confirm the diagnosis and determine the next treatment plan. Therefore it is important to consult directly if the complaint persists and ask for a medical explanation about the condition you are experiencing by the treating doctor.
In addition, non-infectious skin diseases can develop or complications occur in the form of secondary infections called impetigenisata. Signs and symptoms include pain, redness, pus formation, sores tend to be always wet, and complaints of fever.
If the wound appears wet and actively produces pus, proper wound care is needed. The principle of wound management is that the wound must be clean, the infection must be dealt with thoroughly, and facilitate the wound so that it is always moist to create an ideal healing environment. The first is to properly clean the wound using running water, saline (0.9% NaCl) or rivanol. If there is a lot of pus, pus should be drained.
If an infection has been confirmed, it needs to be treated with antibiotics either in the form of topical or oral medication in accordance with the extent of existing skin disorders. Then if the wound tends to get wet then the wound should be closed and kept moist with a moist compress using gauze or with modern dressing better. If the wound is dry enough with the administration of an occlusive topical medication to create a moist atmosphere.
Consult with your doctor directly to get adequate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
