Good afternoon, I want to ask, it’s been almost 3 months since my fingers were itchy in the cuticle area .. then my fingernails were also damaged due to dryness, even though I checked at a dentist doctor, but there hasn’t been any difference.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Itching on the fingers can occur due to various possibilities, including:
Fungal skin infections Pompholyx conditions or dyshydrotic eczema Allergic conditions Dry skin or xerosis Nervous disorders Psychological conditions such as anxiety
In your case, you have the right step by going to a dermatologist. But as you can see, there are many possible causes for your condition and actually there are more. The problem is, some of these conditions may have the same appearance so that it is difficult to distinguish even by experts. So our advice, you should go back to your dermatologist for further evaluation of the condition. Because if it doesn't get better, there could be things that were missed at the first examination, but they must be considered now. Your doctor may also perform additional investigations to further narrow the possibilities.
Meanwhile, among the things you can do at home to relieve itching is avoiding scratching, avoiding warm baths, cold compresses, applying moisturizer to your fingers if they are dry, and sprinkling salicil powder or taking drugs containing antihistamines that are sold freely by reading the rules. wear the one listed. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
