Itchy Bumps After Work?
Hello doctor, every time I come home from work up I feel that my thighs start to itch, and it will spread to other body tissues, after reaching the house itching will continue to grow and the bumps are almost as much as my hands and thighs. But after I go to the air-conditioned room itching and bumps will decrease. Is this biduran or is there another cause. Please answer, thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Do you feel itching when you get hot, or when you sweat, or when you wear pants that are too tight? Are there other situations that trigger your itch? What is the exact shape of the bump on your thigh and body?
Basically KRL ride will not cause itching on the skin, therefore you should look for other factors that you may experience when you ride KRL and might cause itching on the skin, for example you get hot and sweat a lot when riding KRL, you jostle and your feet a lot of rubbing against your pants, or for example you consume certain foods or drinks or medications before you come home from work which causes you to experience itching.
If indeed itching and bumps are reduced after you enter a cooler room, chances are the cause of your itching is too hot air or your sweat. In this case what you experience is called physical urticaria. Physical urticaria is a big bump like an island on the skin that feels very itchy triggered by physical factors such as hot weather, cold, sweat, friction or scratching on the skin, sunlight, pressure on the skin, sweat, etc. You should try to look for other situations that can cause your symptoms to appear and try to avoid the condition. If indeed your itching appears because you are hot or you sweat a lot you can cram when riding the KRL, you can try to go home when the KRL is not too crowded and see again whether your symptoms appear or not. It's a good idea to try to wear comfortable clothes that are soft and absorb sweat so that your clothes don't rub your skin too much and cause itching.
When itching appears, you should not scratch it. You can compress your skin with cold compresses, and apply lotion containing calamine to help reduce itching on your skin. Consult further with a dermatologist so that further tests can be done and the exact trigger factors are sought.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
