Hello doctor Good afternoon, I’m Arba, 20 years old. I have had scars since I was in elementary school. But I just realized that it was itchy, the area was in the hands and feet. But at home only I have many scars. I have tried to treat it by taking medicine and applying ointment. But the itching and scars never go away. What is the solution so that the scars disappear and the itching decreases. thanks. thank you
Hello Arba, Thank you for the question.
Have you ever checked yourself into a dermatologist? Is the itchy area also accompanied by a skin rash? The complaints you submit can be caused by:
If there is a skin rash and you scratch it due to itching, then this scratching can cause minor skin sores and inflammation of the skin. This wound can be infected by bacteria which can further cause inflammation of the skin. One result of this skin inflammation is a scar in the form of skin discoloration. You should immediately consult a dermatologist first. The doctor will ask about these symptoms and things related to it and do a direct examination of your skin, the doctor may do a skin scraping or skin biopsy. After confirming your condition, the new doctor can provide further treatment.
Please avoid scratching itchy skin. You can use calamine lotion or salicyl powder to help relieve itching complaints. Wash sheets, pillowcases and bolsters, and blankets regularly.
I hope this helps.
