Itching All Over The Body That Is Prolonged And Never Heals?
. I want to ask. I have a scit itchy more than 4 months. I checked into various places about itching on my body. Initially I checked into the clinic. The doctor gave medication for inflammation / itching, ctm, and itching ointment (dexigen). Then I went to the pharmacy with the same high school. But it was not cured. Then I went to the puskesmas. And when I was given itching medication like the one in the clinic, only the brand was different in the inflammation / itching drug. Still not diminished. Then I went to the puskesmas again and was given the same medicine but it was added to itchy talcum powder. Still not diminishing. Then I was referred to the hospital with a dermatologist and a genital doctor. From the hospital, I was given 2 types of ointment and an itchy drug. Then I Control again and given the drug dexamethason and loratadine as well as the ointment mometasone furoate. Then in addition I asked my brother (doctor) he suggested taking interhistemin itching medication. What do the doctors think? To make my itching heal. to the whole body.
Thank you for the question.
Itching all over the body can be caused by a variety of things, but depending on the characteristics of the itch, such as certain places itching feels, appearance of skin that feels itchy if there is redness, elevation such as biduran, scars around the sidelines of the finger, or nodules red nodules, and keep in mind the originator of the itch, do you tend to live together with other people like in the hostel, in boarding schools, or you have certain allergies to a substance.
The following causes of itching in the groin that spreads widely throughout the body:
Fungal infections, or referred to as tinea corporis or crusis (depending on the place), usually accompanied by appearance of purplish red skin with a firm whitish edge.
Urticaria, namely biduran caused by allergies.
Contact dermatitis (irritant or allergic), which is caused by contact with certain substances or objects.
Intertriginous dermatitis, which is caused by excessive friction in the groin, or wearing pants that are too tight.
Psoriasis, an autoimmune disorder that causes the formation of silver red placards throughout the body.
Basically if you have received a treatment, you can do the treatment for about one week, and see the response. The doctor will ask for complaints, and examine your skin that has a complaint, and prescribe medications such as antihistamines and ointments or steroids. Interhistine drugs are a class of antihistamines which are hard drugs and require a prescription from a doctor, so you are advised to consult with your doctor first to take these drugs.
The recommendations you can do at home are:
Recognize triggers that cause itching all over the body, including if you have a history of allergies. Avoid these triggers, can eat foods such as seafood, eggs, and avoid exposure to dust, grass, or cold air.
Change bed sheets, pillowcases, bolsters and blankets regularly.
Wash clothes and cloth using warm water and dry it in the hot sun.
Bathing twice a day, can use antiseptic soap.
Brush the body with salicylic powder or lotion.
Hope this helps.
