How To Deal With Itching On The Head
, I want to ask. The last few days my head was very itchy. And the itchy area appears as a small bump. The more scratched, the more itchy. I guess this is the cause because what? thank you
The appearance of itchy bumps on the scalp can be caused by the following things:
Certain conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis or atopic eczema
Fungal, bacterial or viral infections
You should consult a doctor if the complaint is very disturbing so that the doctor can ascertain the cause of your complaint so that appropriate handling steps can be given. The doctor will ask for a history of your complaint, conduct a physical examination or supporting examination if needed. Investigations that can be recommended by doctors are skin scrapings, wood lamps, allergy tests or blood tests.
If the complaint is caused by an allergic reaction, the doctor may prescribe antihistamines such as loratadine or cetirizine and prescribe antigatal topical medication if necessary. If the complaint is caused by a fungal infection (tinea capitis), the doctor may prescribe antigatal, antifungal drugs such as griseofulvin / ketoconazole or ketoconazole shampoo.
The following recommendations for you:
Avoid conditions that can trigger complaints on your scalp
Do not scratch the part that is complained of
Maintain general body hygiene
Try to bathe at least 2x a day and wash once a day
Use body care products (shampoo or soap) that suit your skin condition. I suggest that you use hypoallergenic / non-allergenic and gentle body care products to prevent complaints from gaining weight
Immediately consult a doctor if complaints persist or worsen
