Medication To Deal With Itching All Over The Skin?
Hello, I want to complain about my illness and really need medical advice from you, Doctor. I have been suffering from itchy for 2 months and I don’t know how to overcome it. For the symptoms I experienced, at the beginning of the body, a solid bump around the male genitals (sorry), at first I thought it was normal itching but a few days later it became even more itchy and first spread to the thigh area and the groin becomes reddish and appear small spots that sometimes line up and clot, small red bumps outside the area clot but in the penis area the bumps are quite large and dense. I tried to treat with sulfur luamayan helped but it was very poignant and hot and even then the effects of sulfur itching came out again, I took antibiotics, took a warm bath mixed with magic leaves but still did not recover. These itching recur when going to bed / night. And to this day itching has spread to the area of the penis, buttocks, groin, thighs, hands, stomach and even around the face. And I was surprised again around the fingers / toes and there were water-filled spots. Please help for how to overcome it, drugs / creams that I must use and anything that I should avoid especially food. “Thank you HealthReplies.com “
There are various skin diseases that can cause complaints of bumps and itching all over the body. Some common causes are:
Scabies or scabies
Is a skin disease caused by Sarcoptes scabiei mites
Transmission: direct contact with scabies patients, using bed linen / towels / clothing used by scabies sufferers
Risk factors: elderly people, children, patients with immune disorders, living in a dormitory
Symptoms: feeling very itchy on the skin, especially at night; rash spots resembling pimples or small scaly blisters can be all over the body, but especially between the fingers, can get to the genitals
Diagnosis: physical examination, ink test, microscopic examination
Therapy: use of permethrin ointment; eradicate mites by cleaning the home environment, washing all bed linen with hot water, not exchanging towels or clothing with others; soaking in cold water or administering antihistamines to reduce itching; not scratching the skin so as not to cause injuries and secondary infections
Symptoms: redness and itching rash; the skin becomes dry, rough, thickened, and scaly.
Factors that aggravate: weather, certain food allergies (known based on observations by the patient himself / habits after eating something then the symptoms aggravate or appear new skin lesions), clothing, psychological stress, animal hair, etc.
Diagnosis: physical examination, allergy test
Therapy: avoid aggravating factors; treatment in the form of corticosteroids, antibiotics (if there is a secondary infection), antihistamines; the use of soap and moisturizer without perfume
Allegedly due to immune system disorders and genetic factors
Symptoms: rash or reddish spots, thick dry, white silvery scales, rashes cause chapped skin and bleed easily
Diagnosis: physical examination, skin biopsy
Therapy: emollients, topical drugs (corticosteroids, tacrolimus), phototherapy, injectable drugs (adalimumab, etanercept, etc.); stop smoking, avoid alcohol consumption, avoid excessive UV light exposure, consume foods rich in vitamin D
Tinea corporis or ringworm
Fungal infections of dermatophytes
Symptoms: reddish circular rash with silvery scales, the edge of the skin arising more than the middle; itching
Transmitted through direct contact or the use of items exchanged with sufferers. Risk factors are lack of hygiene and low immunity
Diagnosis: physical examination, microscopic examination of skin scrapings
Therapy: antifungal, antihistamine (reduce itching)
To determine the right diagnosis requires a direct examination by a doctor. In addition it is necessary to find out the risk factors that cause why skin rashes can spread widely and break the chain of transmission (if due to infection). Proper treatment can be given after diagnosis. Therapy is given within a certain time period, patient compliance is required in therapy, how to use the right medication, and evaluation with doctors regularly to monitor treatment response. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
