Good afternoon,

1 Answer:

Hello Iki.


Thank you for the question.


Environmental conditions outside the body that are too cold can cause the skin to experience Xerosis. Xerosis is dryness that the skin experiences. Apart from the temperature of the environment that is too cold, xerosis can also be caused by:

use of soaps that contain harmful chemicals
too long exposure to the sun
lack of fluids or dehydration
bathe too often in a day
use hot water when showering
often rubbing the skin hard and harshly either when drying with a towel or using a soapy sponge

Symptoms of xerosis:

dry, rough, and scaly skin
skin irritation and redness
peeling or cracked skin
whitish skin

As for other causes of your symptoms:

Allergic dermatitis. This is caused by allergies or a history of allergies to both food allergies or other allergies in the family or the sufferer himself.
Contact dermatitis. The use of certain ingredients can cause symptoms such as allergies. Such as the use of iron watches or iron belt heads.

Scabies or scabies. This disease is caused by parasites. This parasite will dig tunnels under the skin at night so that itching is more pronounced at night. The most common places for him to live are between the fingers, below the navel, armpits, and the pubic area such as the skin of the testicles. This disease is related to body hygiene and cleanliness of bedding or clothes used. There is a similar history of itching suffered by other people who share a bed or clothes with the sufferer.
Candidiasis. This disease is caused by a fungus that causes itching and reddish bumps that seem wet in the folds of the body such as the armpits, under the breasts, and in the groin. This disease is associated with hygiene, illness, and long-term use of corticosteroid drugs.

We recommend that you consult a Dermatologist to find out the exact cause of the complaint you are experiencing in order to get the appropriate therapy.


The suggestions that I can give:

use a lotion that moisturizes the skin
keep the bedding, clothes, and towels clean
do not scrub too hard
do not use soap that can irritate the skin
take a shower using cold water

Basically, skin diseases caused by allergies cannot be cured. It can only be controlled by taking precautions by avoiding substances that can cause allergies. For skin diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, and parasites, it can be cured not only with drugs but also self-hygiene and the environment in which they live.


Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.


Regards,
