Itching And Pain In The Left Abdomen?
Good night. I want to ask, why does the left side of the stomach’s skin feel itchy and it hasn’t stopped for two days, besides that my stomach feels painful even though I don’t have a history of heartburn. What caused it? Then how to overcome it? Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Localized itching, ie on the left abdomen, tends to be caused by abnormalities in the local skin. You can see the shape of the rash that appears on the skin at that place. Based on the shape of the rash will be known possible causes. As for general skin diseases characterized by complaints of itching, can be caused:
1. Bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infections
2. Allergic reaction
3. irritant reaction
4. Autoimmune process
You can buy over-the-counter antigatal or antipruritic drugs, such as cetirizin. You can smear the anti-itching liquid medicine. Don't scratch the itchy skin. Use loose clothing that absorbs sweat, so that itchy skin doesn't rub against clothes and the rash stays dry. Consult with a dermatologist if the complaint is very disturbing or has not improved within one week after the above treatment.
Regarding pain in the stomach that you feel in the area around the stomach, namely the upper left abdomen and especially the stomach of the solar plexus, can be caused by disorders of the stomach organs, pancreatic glands, diaphragm, heart, lower left lung and spleen.
Relating to the magh that you suspect, is gastric disease caused by increased levels of stomach acid which can be caused by bacterial helicobacter pylory infection, food allergic reactions, autoimmune diseases and irritant reactions by acids, alcohol, chili etc. Magh pain, in medical language is called gastritis. Characterized by heartburn or left upper abdomen such as pain, stabbing and burning. Pain that is felt does not spread. Patients will also complain of begah, often belching, nausea and even greenish vomiting. You can try to overcome them by consuming over-the-counter magh drugs. Then eat a little bit but often. If the complaint is getting annoying or has not improved in 2 days, you should consult with a doctor of internal medicine, so that further examination and treatment can be done.
Thus hopefully useful.
