Itching Never Cured?
Good afternoon, doctor. I am a 23 year old female. About a month ago a bump appeared in the (sorry) area of my ass like I was bitten by a mosquito. But the bump does not go away and feels very itchy, especially at night. Then after a few days, my whole body also felt itchy, but without bumps. In some parts of the body such as the hands appear small red spots, but for other body parts there are no spots or bumps, it only feels itchy. I have already consulted a general practitioner, because there are no skin specialists near home, but there have not been any significant changes. About the possibility of disease / symptoms that occur in my skin condition? Thank you, doctor.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Conditions that you experience with the whole body feels itchy, can occur due to various possibilities, including:
Allergies Immune system disorders Fungal infections Dry skin conditions or xerosis Nerve disorders And actually can also be due to other causes such as kidney disorders, but that can only be determined through direct examination. So we suggest, so that your disease is clear about the possibility and treatment, this time try to see a dermatologist, because the general practitioner has tried to treat you and was not successful. Of course you have the right to seek the opinion of other general practitioners, but it would be far better if you go directly to a dermatologist so you can immediately get the treatment you need.
Meanwhile, make sure your fingernails remain short, avoid scratching the itchy area, to reduce itching, compress with cold compresses, apply calamine lotion, keep clean and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
