Hello Yuyun, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Itching is a common symptom of skin complaints. Symptoms can occur in all parts of the body, including the legs. Possible underlying causes also vary, including:
Viral infections, such as Herpes zooster Bacterial infections, such as impetigo Fungal infections, such as Tinea Pedis Dermatitis Contact Allergy / Irritant Psoriasis Scabies Eczema Neurodermatitis To distinguish the cause of a direct examination by a doctor on the skin to look for the presence or no rash, then determine the type of rash, then performed additional checks such as skin scrapings, allergen tests, and so on. That way the exact cause can be known and the handling becomes more precise.
For now, some things you can do are:
Do not scratch if itching can cause a secondary infection. Keep your feet clean to prevent complaints becoming increasingly Avoid triggers of itching If the complaint is to interfere with activities immediately contact your doctor or dermatologist for further examination and treatment
