Feet And Palms Are Itchy And Sore?
Hello, excuse me, I want to ask my daughter, who is 14 years old, I haven’t been able to sleep for 2 days because of the itchiness and pain in my feet and itchy hands.
Hello Ridho, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com.
Itching and burning that occur at night can be caused by several things:
1. Lice infection on the skin (scabies): scabies or infection caused by lice or mites, usually causing complaints of more severe itching at night, attacking more than 1 person in one house or community, appearing spots that form like tunnels ( canal), found lice or flowers based on examination by a doctor. Usually these lice attack around between the fingers, in the groin, genitals and so on. Treatment of this louse, all sufferers must be treated simultaneously so that no source of disease is left that can spread to others again.
2. Irritation of the skin due to objects used or due to allergies: irritation of the skin due to contact with objects (allergic contact dermatitis) or irritation due to contact with allergens that is things that trigger allergic reactions (allergic contact dermatitis) can cause complaints of itching, irritation , appear reddish spots or skin-colored, sometimes shaped like spots that contain fluid. Complaints arise because of contact with objects that can irritate the skin such as metals, use of lotions or cosmetics, detergents or other irritants, symptoms can also arise due to contact with allergens (things that trigger allergic reactions) such as dust, seafood or chocolate foods and so.
3. Fungal infections of the skin: yeast infections of the skin are characterized by itching, soreness, and bumps with reddish or skin-colored bumps, usually caused by fungi that are transmitted through clothing or towels that are used together, due to exposure to animals or plants contains mushrooms, because of the fungus on the shoe or tools attached to the body. The fungus appears also supported by the condition of the body which is often humid and lack of personal hygiene.
To find out more about the causes of complaints in your child, you should immediately consult a dermatologist or a pediatrician. There your child may get further tests and appropriate treatment such as giving medication to reduce itching, ointment or powder if needed.
Prevention that can be done for non-recurring complaints:
1. Bath at least 2x a day using soap
2. Washing hands and feet before and after sleeping, after playing dirty dirt, before and after eating should also wash hands
3. Do not use towels or clothing alternately
4. Avoid playing with dust, animals and plants which may cause allergies in your child
Thus, hopefully useful :)
