Itching On The Skin Of The Hands Due To Excessive Hand Washing
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.comSome types of soap can indeed cause allergic reactions in hypersensitive people. This condition is called allergic contact dermatitis. In addition to soap, some hand sanitizers, dish soap or detergents can cause allergic reactions. And in addition to allergic reactions, washing your hands too often can also cause dry skin, especially if you use warm water or soap that contains antiseptics. This condition is called xerotic dermatitis. In addition, there is also the possibility that your complaint is caused by infection, both fungi that cause ringworm or house dust mites that cause scurvy. You should use soap made from herbal ingredients, not using fragrances and other substances that can irritate the skin. Washing hands must use running water. After cleaning the hands, apply an antibiotic ointment. Keep hands open, except if you are going outside the house, then close the wound in the hand using gauze. Perform wound care as such, until the wound improves. After the wound has improved, you can use hand cream, especially those containing SPF to protect the hands from direct sun exposure. Hand cream cannot replace washing hands with soap and running water. And hand cream cannot keep hands hygienic. However, hand cream can moisturize the skin of the hands so it is not easily irritated. So that it may be useful.
