Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Relating to complaints that you experience can indicate some of the diseases below, namely:
1. Atopic dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin caused by an allergic reaction. Caused by allergen exposure, such as eating eggs, shrimp, exposure to cold temperatures and others. This condition will be experienced by people who are hypersensitive, characterized by having a history of shortness of breath accompanied by a "ngi" sound, sneezing and runny every morning, allergic contact dermatitis and calligraphy.
2. Scabies or scabies, which is a skin infection caused by house dust mites. Characterized by a rash in the form of a reddish bump that is arranged like a tunnel accompanied by itching at night and is easily transmitted to other housemates.
3. Erythroderma, which is a skin disease characterized by redness of the skin on almost the entire body. Can be caused by taking drugs, extending previous skin diseases, systemic and idiopathic diseases (not yet known clearly).
You can take over-the-counter antihistamine or antigatal medications, such as cetirizine. Look at what triggers your itch. Avoid everything that you feel is the originator. Do not replace skin hygiene products until complaints resolve. Avoid swimming and bathing with warm water.
If your complaint is widespread so that it is annoying or if there is a rash in other forms, such as scaly, peeling or blistering, consult a dermatologist. The doctor who meets you directly will be able to conduct the required medical questions and answers and the necessary physical examination. So the doctor can find out the disease and its causes. Furthermore, doctors can provide treatment according to the cause.
Thus hopefully useful.
