Itching Doesn’t Heal On Scars?
Hello .. I want to ask .. before I had a small scar on my leg .. then when I went for a walk to Jakarta I didn’t wear socks .. after coming home from the streets, the scars on my legs felt very itchy .. then a little healed but every time When exposed to dust it itches again over time the wound widened because I always scratch every time it itches .. I have used Inerson and Miconazole ointment to treat the wound .. but every time I want to dry the wound feels very itchy I can’t stand it so I keep scratching .. over time the itching was not only on the part of my scar .. namely the other leg .. then one night my hands were very itchy then I scratched the next morning my hands had red bumps .. and every time I took a shower the bumps on my hands looked even redder and I felt sickly and sickly like that .. because my feet and my hands were itchy so when I used the hand body only the thighs on my stomach and chest but after a few days then the part that I put on the hand body itchy too … then I was given a suggestion by my mother to use tapioca flour on the itchy part … after I used it the itching felt less and the bumps on my hands were no longer red … I also tried drinking After I drank it I did not feel itchy .. because of the itching in my chest was healed and so I used the hand body again on my chest, I used it in the morning after taking a shower but at noon because of the hot weather I was sweating and my chest very itchy .. and I realized that the similarity of all the parts of my body that itchy is the part that I wear the hand body in .. the part that I don’t wear the handbody doesn’t itch .. is my itching due to the hand body? I have used it for years
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itching, sores, and reddish bumps on the skin can arise due to various factors, including one of them due to allergic reactions or irritation due to the use of certain skin care products, namely hand bodies. In general, if it is true that complaints arise due to allergies or irritation due to the hand body you are using, then it is true, complaints will occur from the very beginning when you use the hand body.
If a new complaint has emerged recently, while you have been using the hand body for a long time, then you need to be aware of other possibilities that cause your skin to experience sores, itching, widened, and reddish spots, including:
Infection, for example:
Scabies (scabies, infection with the mite Sarcoptes scabeii)
Tinea pedis, tinea manum, tinea corporis (fungal infection)
Miliaria (prickly heat, inflammation of the sweat glands)
Impetigo (bacterial infection)
Candidiasis (yeast infection Candida sp.)
Seborrheic dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation that causes the skin to become scaly like dandruff)
Psoriasis (chronic skin inflammation due to an autoimmune disorder characterized by thickened, peeling, and scarring skin)
Neurodermatitis (chronic skin inflammation triggered by stress)
Atopic dermatitis, and so on
Have you ever checked your complaint to a dermatologist regarding your complaint? If not, it's best if before the complaints spread, check with your doctor first. With a thorough physical evaluation, doctors can generally determine the right treatment, for example through administering topical drugs, oral medications, or others. Avoid giving any therapy without a clear medical indication, including using creams, flour, or others.
In the meantime, you should be more careful in maintaining your personal hygiene, namely by taking a shower more regularly, using an antiseptic soap, then drying your body well before dressing. Avoid exchanging clothes, towels, or footwear with other people to minimize the risk of transmission. Also avoid too frequent scratching, peeling, or picking at the itchy skin. If you have a history of allergies to certain substances, avoid triggering these allergies so that complaints do not recur. In order to minimize itching, you can temporarily sprinkle salicyl powder first, but make sure to avoid sprinkling the powder around the genitals, rectum, eyes, or wet wounds.
Hope this helps ..
