Itching Accompanied By Redness Of The Body?
Congratulations. R nAfter a few weeks my body seems itchy like ringworm (redness u0026amp; like a ring). In the past week I have tried to treat it with the caladine brand itching powder. Then during this week I took a warm shower in the morning u0026amp; afternoon mixed with salt (sprinkled with salt u0026amp; dissolves). Yesterday it was almost healed in several parts. But yesterday afternoon I was exercising so I was sweating, then waking up there was new ringworm in another part. The size is wide, what should I do. Meanwhile, next month I have to do KKN for two months. I’m afraid this is getting worse. R nThat, thank you

In order to deal with the itching that you are complaining about, you must first identify the cause.
Reddish itching on the body can be caused by the following medical conditions:
Dermatophyte fungal infection of skin / ringworm (Tinea): rash that is round, with redder edges, feels itchy especially when sweating Candida yeast infection (candidiasis cutis): large reddish rash in the middle surrounded by small rashes, often in the folds area, itching especially when sweating Lice infection of 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 blockage of the sweat glands (miliaria) Hives (urticaria): usually caused by allergies to certain proteins, for example those contained in food Congenital skin inflammation (atopic dermatitis) : this disease occurs recurrently, is congenital and is often a hereditary disease. May be accompanied by other congenital diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis Inflammation of the skin due to contact allergies (allergic contact dermatitis), which is excessive sensitivity of the skin when it comes into contact with a substance which results in inflammation Inflammation of the skin due to allergic irritation (irritant contact dermatitis): for example exposure to detergents for a long time long time, exposed to acids / alkalis, exposed to body fluids tomcat Insect bites To determine the cause of your complaint, you should further consult 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:
Bathing at least 2x a day Dry the body after bathing or after sweating Use thin, soft, and absorbent clothes Wash your clothes, sheets, and pillowcases using laundry soap and hot water while complaints persist If necessary, check with your family / people you have contact with. so that there is no recurrent transmission, especially if the result is infection. Do a patch test first every time you use a new product that 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 that you are allergic to the ingredients in the topical product. Avoid foods that cause your allergies. 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 :)
