I am a man aged 25 years, since May 2019 my whole body feels itchy from the scalp like dandruff but there is also ulceration … until the toe itchy rash until it leaves a mark because of scratching … it’s been treated but it doesn’t heal. What exactly am I suffering from? Do I have serboroic dermatitis? Then what actions should I do doctor ??
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The itchy condition that you are experiencing, is not a specific symptom and can occur due to various possibilities, including:
So it is possible that you have seborrheic dermatitis, but that is not the only possibility and to make sure it needs a direct examination. Let's say that even seborrheic dermatitis, the causes of this condition are very diverse, ranging from stress, hormonal imbalances and fungal growth. So in the same diagnosis, the treatment received by each person can be different.
We realize that you have been treated before and were unsuccessful. But unfortunately, just checking yourself is the only way to get a definitive diagnosis and the best treatment. You might be able to get a diagnosis estimate as we stated above from any source online, but to be sure, it is absolutely necessary to have a direct examination. If there is no examination, there is the potential for misunderstanding and if so, the most disadvantage is yourself.
Therefore, we suggest that you consult your dermatologist, if you have not previously seen a dermatologist, submit your complaint, and if the treatment has not been successful, return to the same doctor for control. Ask what happens during the inspection gap and ask what the next step is, whether you will be given a different drug or a new drug will be added. If your dermatologist is not communicative or you feel that there is no progress, you have the right to seek a second opinion from a dermatologist at another hospital, but the point is, once again, the examination is mandatory.
Meanwhile, do not scratch even though itchy, because it can make the formation of wounds and the potential for infection will increase. Take a shower and wash it regularly, rinse the soap thoroughly, clean your hair short, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
