Hello Luqman, Thank you for the question.
Do you know the cause of this itchy complaint? It is important for you to know the cause of the itch you are experiencing (doctor's diagnosis) so that you don't get the wrong information and receive the right treatment. Not all skin problems are treated with the same medicine. You also need to know that there are some skin conditions that cannot be cured but can be controlled. Some of the causes of itching complaints are:
The best advice for you is to consult your dermatologist again. The doctor needs to ask about your complaints and do a check on your skin. If necessary, the doctor will recommend further tests such as allergy tests, skin scrapings, or biopsy (body tissue sampling). From this examination the doctor will find out the cause and provide appropriate treatment. You can ask your doctor's diagnosis to be more certain about what you are experiencing.
In the meantime, try to do the following suggestions:
get to know the trigger and try to avoid it
avoid scratching itchy skin. You can use salicyl powder or calamine lotion to temporarily relieve itching
use skin moisturizer to prevent dry skin
keep your body clean by bathing regularly
Avoid sharing personal items with others
avoid using drugs without doctor's advice. The use of the wrong medication can potentially cause your condition to get worse
I hope this helps.
