Good night. I have been experiencing biduran or kaligata for the past weeks. There are small red bumps that itch increasingly scratched red lumps meratau and enlarged. A few hours the enlarged lump will disappear. The location moved. Sometimes in the hands, neck, thighs, groin, and armpit area. Most often on the thigh.
Hello Firdaus Habiburohman,
Hives or urticaria is a skin reaction that is generally related because of an allergic / hypersensitivity reaction to an allergen. Allergens are substances that can cause excessive reaction from a person's immune system, whereas in normal people do not cause any symptoms.
Allergens can be:
Certain foods: seafood, beans, cow's milk, eggs, certain fruits, etc. Certain medicines Mite dust Pollen / animal dust Animal hair Insect bites Ingredients from skin care products Materials from clothing Although rare, in some urticaria people can also arising from exposure to hot air, cold air, to water. Patients with a family history of allergies can generally be at risk for allergies as well. Allergy symptoms can occur several minutes to hours after contact with allergens. Allergic reactions besides causing urticaria symptoms can also arise other symptoms such as:
Angioedema: swelling of the skin and mucosa, such as swelling of the lips, eyelids, face, tongue, neck, including in the respiratory tract Shortness of breath, wheezing breath Itchy nose, sneezing, coughing Red eyes, itching and watering Abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea Severe allergic reactions in the form of anaphylactic shock can be life threatening. Anaphylactic shock begins with an increase in heart rate, followed by a drastic decrease in blood pressure. The patient can feel palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, cold sweats, fainting. In these circumstances patients must be immediately taken to the doctor to get medical treatment.
Allergy diagnosis apart from clinical symptoms and physical examination, also needs to be proven from allergy testing. Allergy tests can be done with patched tests, skin pricked tests, and other tests that deliberately expose several types of allergens that are often to the skin and then see the reactions that arise (local urticaria). From this examination can be determined what substances can cause allergies to your body. Blood tests can also be used to help diagnose allergies.
Management of allergies is in the following ways:
Finding allergens that cause allergies and as much as possible to avoid exposure or consumption of these allergens Provision of drugs: antihistamines, corticosteroids, leukotriene inhibitors Epinephrine injection for cases of anaphylactic shock Allergic symptoms can generally disappear spontaneously if exposure to the substance has disappeared or is absent. However, it will reappear when exposed to the allergen again. The reactions that arise can vary and can arise severe reactions. Therefore you should do further tests with your doctor to determine which allergens cause allergic reactions to prevent severe allergic reactions. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
