Causes Skin Itching To Appear Red Spots?
So I somehow got itchy and hot and got red spots all over my body
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of reddish spots that feel itchy to hot all over the body, there are many possible causes. One that often occurs is atopic dermatitis. This condition reflects chronic inflammation that can recur and recur at any time. The cause is related to genetic variations that cause the skin's ability to protect itself from irritation, infection, and allergies to be disturbed. This condition is closely related to genetic factors (heredity). Often, people with atopic dermatitis also have a history of asthma or allergic rhinitis. Not only itchy and red rash, atopic dermatitis sufferers often also experience dry, thickened, peeling, swollen skin, and are very sensitive to scratching.
Apart from atopic dermatitis, reddish spots that feel hot and itchy can also occur due to other causes, for example:
Varicella (chicken pox) Scabies (scabies) Miliaria (prickly heat) Seborrheic dermatitis (a chronic skin inflammation that makes the skin scaly like dandruff) Drug eruptions, etc. If it is true that the complaint spreads to almost the entire body, then you should not let it. Check with your doctor or dermatologist so you can identify the possibility that is causing your complaint. If it is true that what you are experiencing is atopic dermatitis, the doctor can provide treatment in the form of oral (oral) or topical (topical) drugs, for example those containing anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti-itch, and so on. Alternatively, the doctor will recommend that you undergo phototherapy or other medical measures according to the severity of the complaint you are experiencing.
In the meantime, you should not scratch or apply too much pressure to the itchy skin. Choose clothes that are soft and absorb sweat, and change your underwear at least 2 times a day after bathing. If there are certain substances that often trigger your allergies, stay away from exposure to these substances, for example dust mites, cold, seafood, and so on. Finally, do lots of relaxation, avoid stress, and reduce itching on your skin by sprinkling salicyl powder or applying calamine lotion.
Hope it helps ..
