Itching and redness of the skin on the back to the buttocks can indeed be a manifestation of hypersensitivity (allergy). This allergy trigger can be due to drugs, food, or it could be due to other factors, such as cold temperatures, dust mites, animal dander, pollen, and so on. Clinically, it is indistinguishable what the itching caused by a drug allergy is from a food allergy. If you are careful in observing whenever the itching occurs, you are actually the one who better understands what triggers your allergies.
In addition to allergies, the itching and redness that you experience may also appear due to other causes, such as insect bites, miliaria (prickly heat), tinea versicolor (phlegm), tinea corporis (fungus), contact dermatitis, excessive pressure (eg due to wearing clothes). tight), stress, and so on. You should not use ointments or pills carelessly until it is ascertained what is causing the complaints on your skin. Using the wrong ointment or pill can actually make your symptoms worse.
What's important for you to do right now is:
Avoid excessive scratching of itchy and red skin Choose loose, cool, soft and breathable clothing Take regular baths, use room temperature water, not warm water Minimize contact with potentially allergenic substances (as mentioned above) Reduce stress and anxiety Excessive drinking lots of water Apply calamine lotion or sprinkle salicylic powder on the itchy skin so that the complaints subside. best treatment..
I hope this helps.
