Hello Hermanto


Allergies are one of the considerations for the onset of itching, where when the body is exposed to a certain substance or environment, it eventually triggers the body to produce histamine which plays a role in the onset of the itching sensation. The itching caused by an allergic reaction can vary depending on how severe the allergic reaction is. Starting from itching without any changes on the surface of the skin, to itching accompanied by the skin becoming bumps, swelling, or even blisters.


The cause of this allergy can also occur in various ways, for example ingesting food/drink that triggers allergies, coming into contact with allergy-triggering substances, and even certain levels of humidity and temperature can also trigger allergies. Besides allergies do not have to appear immediately when exposed to substances / conditions that trigger allergies, there are also allergic reactions that arise after some time after exposure, so it is quite difficult to find out the source of the allergy trigger.


Allergic reactions can cause various medical conditions such as hives, allergic contact dermatitis, and drug eruptions. However, what Hermanto experienced was not necessarily an allergy, so it is necessary to consider conditions such as pityriasis rosea, erythema multiforme, scabies, and tick bites (pediculosis), scabies infection (scabies). Of course, it is necessary to do an examination by a doctor first to be able to determine what condition Hermanto actually experienced. Because even though all these conditions are similar, that is, they both cause itching, that doesn't mean the treatment is the same.


You can try using salicylic powder or calamine lotion to help reduce itching, in addition, try taking a shower before going to bed at night. Then try also to dry mattresses, pillows, bolsters, and sofas and also make sure that the air flow in your room is good enough so that it doesn't get damp.


Hope it is useful
