Itchy Skin After Wearing Tight Clothes Or Pants?
Good morning, I want to ask why every time I use pretty tight clothes such as jeans or underwear, after the itching comes off and it immediately becomes bumpy? thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Excessive skin friction, coupled with increased sweat production when you wear tight clothing, can indeed trigger itching and bumps (urticaria). Not only that, often, this action also makes your skin become reddish, blackish when excessive scratching, rough, smooth, and thickened, making it less pleasant when viewed.
Apart from the influence of your habits using tight clothing, itching and bumps on your skin can also occur due to other triggers, for example stress, allergies, skin infections (for example due to fungus, bacteria, viruses, or mites), seborrheic dermatitis, insect bites or other animals hormonal fluctuations, and so on. This condition is generally not dangerous. Even so, clearly this complaint can be very disturbing of your daily activities.
Therefore, we recommend that you consult yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist to be given the best treatment. Advanced tests, such as allergy tests, laboratories, etc. can also be done by doctors in more severe cases. Furthermore, the treatment that doctors give can vary, ranging from administering powder, cream, ointments, to certain oral medications so that your complaints improve.
At this time, all you need to do is:
Although itchy, don't scratch your skin excessively
To reduce itching, simply apply calamine lotion on the itchy skin
Do not carelessly give medication to itchy skin without doctor's advice
Take a clean and diligent bath, use soap containing sulfur and salicylic acid
No longer wearing tight clothes
Choose clothes that are soft, clean and absorb sweat
Change your clothes regularly if they are dirty, at least 2 times a day
Don't exchange personal items with other people
Keep your skin from contact with substances that can trigger allergies and irritations
Hope this helps ...
