Itching All Over The Body For A Month Never Healed?
, I want to ask. I felt itching in the wrists, knees, elbows, thighs, buttocks, armpits, chest, stomach, legs, and especially the genitals. It has happened since a month ago. This itchy part is in the form of bumps like being bitten by a mosquito. At midnight the itching peaks. Today I started taking the drug Xyzal Levocetirizine Dihydrochloride and the topical medication Chloramfecort-H. Is the action that I did this right? Then what kind of illness did I suffer? And what about the correct handling?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itching on various parts of the body, accompanied by bumps like mosquito bites, there are many possible causes, including:
Skin infections due to fungi, mites, bacteria, viruses, or other microorganisms, for example scabies, miliaria, folliculitis, impetigo atopic dermatitis, which is a chronic inflammation of the skin that occurs in people with atopic tendencies Seborrheic dermatitis, which is a chronic inflammation in the skin that causes scaly skin resembling dandruff Psoriasis, which is a chronic inflammation of the skin that arises due to autoimmune disorders, so that the skin accelerates very quickly and uncontrollably. Other, for example exercise induced urticaria, allergies, bitten by insects or other animals, effects of excessive suppression, stress, hormonal fluctuations (in women for example during pregnancy), side effects of drugs, liver disorders, kidney disorders, etc. The drugs you mentioned can be used as a treatment for itching on the skin associated with inflammation or allergies. However, if other causes of your complaint, of course the handling can be different. If the drug is obtained without direct examination by a doctor, you should not take it first, in order to prevent the risk of negative effects that may be caused.
First check your complaint to your doctor or dermatologist so that the causes of itching and bumps on your skin are properly identified. Usually, just by checking directly, the doctor can give you the right treatment. Or if necessary, the doctor can also direct you to undergo further tests, such as allergy testing, examination of skin tissue samples, and so on. At this time, you can take the following steps to improve your complaint:
Do not scratch your skin excessively, even though itchy. Sprinkle with salicyl powder or apply calamine lotion to the skin that has complaints if itching is very disturbing Regular bathing in the morning and evening with antiseptic soap containing sulfur and salicylic acid. Use clean clothes, made from soft, and not strict, change the clothes periodically Do not exchange clothes with others Do not contact with substances that make you allergic No excessive stress Drink plenty of water Hope it helps huh ..
