Hi Arie.. Thank you for the questions given.
Itching all over the body can cause discomfort, and can be caused by several things, including:
Allergies Hives Parasitic infections (scabies) Fungal infections Folliculitis Viral infections Health problems such as diabetes, kidney disorders, immune disorders To find out the cause of your itching, you should see a dermatologist, especially the itching does not decrease, widespread itching, fever , swollen body. The doctor will conduct a direct examination of your skin and may proceed with skin scrapings to be seen under a microscope. So that treatment can be given according to the cause of your complaint. It is necessary to know the exact cause of your complaint, because if you only take anti-itch medication without treating the underlying cause, the complaint will not improve.
Meanwhile what you can do:
If you have allergies to food, medicine, cold air, or other things, then you must avoid the triggers of these allergies. Keep your body clean, take a shower at least 2x per day. Avoid using soaps, lotions that irritate the skin. Change sheets, clothes, towels, regularly and avoid shared use. these items Increase the body's resistance by eating nutritious food and adequate rest Avoid scratching the itchy area because it can lead to other infections Hope this is useful
