How To Cope With Bruntusan Accompanied By Itching That Never Heals?
At night, I have experienced bruntusan about 3 years, and have tried a variety of drugs from dr, pharmacies and online, but the tip always returns very quickly if it stops, one day my bruntusan was very itchy so I could not stand, then I fad with ointment Betamethasone, and my itching and bruntusan disappeared a few days later, so that I use a thin ointment every night, then I try to stop but my bruntusan returns but it takes a long time, so every night I use betamethasone ointment, the question is whether it is safe if it is used for a long time and will it not be fatal for my skin or internal organs?
Thank you for the question.
Stimulation that feels itchy and often repeats for years can occur purely because of problems in your skin, or it could be because of disorders in other organ systems. Some skin problems that can trigger bruntusan and itching like this are atopic dermatitis, keratosis pilaris, fungal infections, prickly heat, scabies, folliculitis, impetigo, neurodermatitis, contact dermatitis, dermatitis herpetiformis, insect bites, and so on. Meanwhile, disorders of other organ systems, such as liver disorders, hormonal disorders, food or drug allergies, immune disorders, etc. can also make the skin feel itchy and bruntusan.
Not all of the conditions above are properly treated with betamethasone ointment. This ointment is only appropriate if your complaint occurs related to allergic reactions or certain inflammatory disorders. If other causes, for example if a complaint occurs due to a fungal infection, it could be that giving this ointment can actually worsen your complaint. In the long run, the use of betamethasone ointment is very risky to cause skin atrophy, dryness, irritation, pigmentation disorders, and even disorders of other organ systems, such as immune disorders, hormonal disorders, kidney disorders, and so on.
Our advice, so that your condition can be handled properly, go to see your doctor directly or a dermatologist. Further tests, such as allergy tests, blood tests, and so on, may be done by a doctor in order to give you the right treatment.
In the meantime, improve your personal hygiene first, take a bath with soap containing sulfur and salicylic acid, wear loose and soft clothing ingredients, do not carelessly exchange personal items with others, diligently wash your hands with antiseptic soap, avoid contact with substances that make you allergic, use a moisturizer on your skin before activity, do not over-scratch and slough off itchy skin and bruntusan, multiply drinking water, do not overdo eating foods that trigger itching (such as seafood, eggs, nuts, milk), improve the cleanliness of the environment around You, and multiply relax every day.
Hope this helps ...
