Hello, good night Yeniulfi ...
There are several possible conditions that can cause the appearance of itching complaints for a long time, including:
dry skin liver disease (liver). In addition to chronic itching, this disease can also be accompanied by a bulging stomach due to accumulation of fluid, yellowish-colored skin or eyes, pain or discomfort in the stomach, weakness, etc. Chronic kidney disease / kidney failure. Just like liver disorders, in chronic kidney disease complaints of itching are also accompanied by bulging stomach due to fluid accumulation. In addition, other symptoms of chronic kidney disease include weakness, pale eyes, shortness of breath, black body, etc. Psychological disorders, such as anxiety, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), irritable depression or allergic to certain substances, for example clothing, soap, detergent chemicals, etc., etc.
We cannot be certain of the conditions experienced by your father, because as we have stated above, there are many possible causes of complaints experienced by your father. In addition, each of the causes / diseases have different treatments and cannot be generalized. To be able to confirm your father's diagnosis, the only way is to do a direct examination. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you take your father to the doctor (especially doctors of internal medicine), in order to get the certainty of the diagnosis experienced by your father. After the diagnosis is established, then you can find the appropriate treatment to deal with the illness experienced by your father. The doctor will conduct question and answer and extract information about complaints that your father has experienced, conduct a physical examination, and if needed the doctor will suggest additional examinations such as blood tests, examinations urine, abdominal ultrasound, x-rays, CT-scans, etc.
Considering that your father's complaint has been very long, and is likely to have disrupted your father's quality of life, we strongly recommend that you not delay checking your father at the doctor.
