Hello Muhammad Jaelani, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Until now, based on available data regarding symptoms that may be caused by infection with the corona virus that causes COVID-19, itching or pain in the skin either when activating, resting or bathing is not included in the symptoms of the virus infection.
Complaints that you experience at this time, may be caused by an allergic reaction of the body to certain things (such as dust, sand, sweat, soap, sun, etc.), irritation of the skin, fungal skin infections (ringworm), bacterial infections of the skin, insect bites, or scabies.
In the meantime, because your complaint is not an emergency, you are allowed to postpone direct consultation with your doctor, and try to do the following:
Further consider what triggers or aggravates your complaint, if any, avoid these things as much as possible Change your soap to a low-allergic soap Improve personal hygiene and the clothes you use everyday Change your clothes every time you feel you are sweating if possible Avoid scratching the part that has a complaint to prevent injury or worsening the condition Although your complaint is most likely not caused by a corona virus infection, it is still advisable to stay at home and do physical distancing according to government recommendations to prevent the spread of the infection. If your itching complaints are felt very disturbing, you are allowed to take CTM drugs according to the dosage on the package. However, if the complaint does not improve after you try the recommendations above or by taking medication, then you are encouraged to consult further with your doctor, you can directly or through the doctor's chat feature on the HealthReplies.com application.
I hope this helps.
