Medication To Deal With Itchy Bumps In Itching?
In the morning, I was breastfeeding a 7 month old baby, right now my allergic condition was relapsing, I was resistant to not taking medication for fear of absorbing it into breast milk, but this caused me to not sleep through the night because of itching, because the allergies appear at night. What medicine is safe for breastfeeding mothers? Thank you in advance..
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what exactly triggers your allergy? Besides itching, are there any other complaints that you are experiencing?
Itching on the skin can not only occur due to allergies. Various skin conditions, including insect bites, skin infections or other organ systems, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, neurodermatitis, psychological disorders, xerosis, liver disorders, sac or gallbladder disorders, kidney disorders, nerve disorders, and so on.
Of course, treatment of itching due to various reasons above can vary. Therefore, it is not right to take medication immediately before ascertaining what is the exact cause of your itching, whether it is due to allergies, or not. Allergy diagnosis can not be enforced carelessly. First, you need to see a doctor or dermatologist for a comprehensive examination, including a physical examination or maybe a supporting test, such as an allergy test, blood test, and so on. This check is important, especially considering your current condition when you are breastfeeding, so that improper consumption of drugs is very risky to disturb the health of the baby you are breastfeeding.
In the meantime, to reduce itching, it is more appropriate if you:
Do not scratch or rub excessively itchy skin More diligent bathing and always wear clean clothes Keep the environment around you so that it is always clean and away from allergens that can make your skin itchy Do not also consume food or drinks that make you allergic More diligent in drinking water Do not anxiety or excessive fear On the itchy skin, first apply calamine lotion or compress with cold water to reduce itching. Hope it helps huh ..
