Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will answer your questions.
To determine the treatment of itching, first you must know the cause of the itching complaint. Itching and bumps on the body can be caused by the following conditions:
Lice infection on the body (scabies, pediculosis corporis). The main risk factor for this case is a history of contact with many people, for example living together in a dormitory Hives (urticaria): usually caused by allergies to certain proteins, for example those contained in food. Insect bites. Skin dermatophyte fungal infection (Tinea): round rash, with redder edges, itching especially when sweating Candida yeast infection (candidiasis cutis): a large reddish rash in the middle surrounded by a small rash, often in the folds area Congenital skin inflammation (atopic dermatitis): this disease recurs, is congenital is born and is often a hereditary disease. May be accompanied by other congenital diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis Skin inflammation due to contact allergies (allergic contact dermatitis) Inflammation of the skin due to allergic irritants (irritant contact dermatitis): e.g. prolonged exposure to detergents, exposure to acids / alkalis, exposure to body fluids tomcat To ensure the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner. The doctor will dig further into your complaint and will perform a detailed examination of your skin using a loop. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as examining skin scrapings to see the causing germs, and blood tests. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions. If deemed necessary or treatment does not improve, the doctor will refer you to a dermatologist.
Things you can do to prevent worsening of your disease and maintain healthy skin are:
Wash your clothes, sheets, and pillowcases using laundry soap and hot water. If necessary, also check with your family / people who have contact with you so that there is no recurring infection Take a shower at least 2x a day Dry your body after bathing or after sweating Use thin, soft, and absorbing sweat Do a patch test first every time you use a new product which is applied to the skin. You do this, by applying the product to a little part of the skin and then observing about a day after whether there is redness, itching, or burning. If there is this, it means you are allergic to the ingredients in the topical product. Avoid foods that cause allergies to you. Use a body moisturizer to avoid dryness of your skin. Dryness of the skin can also trigger itching. You can take over-the-counter drugs such as cetirizine to reduce your itching complaints. This is my explanation. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get better soon :)
