Handling Of Irritable Skin?
Hello, I’m a 24-year-old woman. My skin is easily irritated. Even doing homework, such as sweeping and washing dishes, hand skin can be red, sore, and bumpy. Rubber material in socks or pants, shoes that are rough materials can make skin irritation and itching. Often this irritation develops into wounds if the skin is long exposed to the cause of the irritation. What is this disease called? Do I have to see a dermatologist?

The cause of your complaint can be caused by several possibilities, including allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, viral infections of the skin area, bacterial infections (generally accompanied by discharge of pus), parasitic infections such as scabies that cause bumps in the interconnected area - fingers accompanied by itching at night, dry and flaky skin conditions. In conditions of suspected allergic reaction or irritation in certain ingredients, observations can be made on the pattern of skin lesions that are experienced as well as on the course of skin lesions based on time.
