Hello doctor, we live in Surabaya and the rented house we live in is very hot. since living here, about 3 monthly. my husband sweats very quickly and consumes a lot of clothes. our mattress was so moist because of this flood of sweat. since then my husband complained of intense itching and heat at the bottom of the navel and butt area. not strong enough to sit for long because his buttocks will sweat and itch. my husband is fat and his stomach is sagging underneath, and the folds of fat in the stomach are sweaty and itchy. at this time the husband’s skin becomes hardened, the color is like burn marks, and many are peeling and blisters because they can’t stand to scratch. husband becomes difficult to sleep because he is often awakened by intense itching.
