How To Deal With Itchy And Scarred Skin?
Hello, I’m a 25-year-old man experiencing itchy skin complaints. From the experience of itchy skin felt during the past year, there is a pattern of stages that is almost the same, here’s the plot:
Thank you for the question.
Itching with the characteristics you mentioned can refer to a variety of medical conditions, for example:
Skin infections, for example due to fungi, bacteria, viruses, or parasites
Other factors, such as allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, prickly heat, cholinergic urticaria, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, insect bitten, xerosis, hormonal fluctuations, lichen planus, psychic disorders, immune disorders, etc.
Not all of the above conditions are dangerous. But if indeed your complaint appears very often, it's good that you are more alert. It is not enough to ascertain what exactly the cause of your complaints is based only on the detailed information related to the complaint you mentioned. Direct physical examination is also needed, or some supporting tests, such as allergy tests, skin biopsies, blood tests, or other supporting tests in certain cases. Therefore, it is better to check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist huh ..
In the meantime, what should be done:
Recognize what often triggers itching and other complaints that you feel, then avoid these triggers as much as possible
Also avoid exposure to cold, dry air, dirty water, and other substances that might trigger allergies and irritations on the skin, such as dust mites, animal hair, and so on
Take a clean and diligent bath, use a soap that contains moisturizer, do not rub excess skin
After bathing, use loose clothing and soft ingredients, also use a moisturizer and sunscreen before dressing
Do not carelessly exchange personal belongings with others
Drink more water
Do not overeat foods that trigger itching, such as sea fish, eggs, and nuts
Do not stress, worry, or excessive sadness, increase relaxation and meditation so that the mind is calmer
Improve personal hygiene and the environment in which you live
Also diligently wash your hands with antiseptic soap and shorten your nails regularly
If there is itchy skin, don't scratch or rub excessively, just apply calamine lotion to reduce itching, and not leave any irritating marks.
Hope this helps ...
