Medicines Suitable For Itching Of The Skin To Dryness And Wrinkles?
Hello doctor … I’m 24 years old. I experienced itching in the skin area around the ankles, not always itching but one moment was very itchy. Until if I have scratched my skin a little wrinkled and bumps appear in the itchy area. When it is not itchy and dry, the skin becomes slightly scaly and there is peeling, sometimes to the wound. Please advise and drug recommendations according to complaints. Thank you in advance …
Hello, Isa Zakaria. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints about skin rashes in the form of bumps that feel itching disappear and appear to be scaly and flaking due to repeated scratching can be caused by several possibilities, which are often include:
Circumskripta neurodermatitis (inflammation of the skin with chronic itching, has firm boundaries, there is thickening of the skin due to repeated scratching due to stimulation that triggers itching, itching complaints often arise at night or when leisure, it is difficult to hold so as not to scratch, usually occurs at age 30-50 years) Irritant contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritative substances [detergent, soap, chemicals, etc.], not related to the process of forming the body's immune, symptoms can appear on first exposure to irritative substances) Allergic contact dermatitis (inflammation skin due to contact with allergens [metal, rubber, plant pollen], related to the process of immune formation, symptoms usually appear after repeated exposure to allergenic ingredients) If the complaint is felt to be disturbing, we recommend that you consult a doctor or doctor directly skin specialist in order to get the right evaluation and p appropriate handling. The doctor may give a cream / ointment to be applied to the area of skin that is experiencing complaints, as well as oral medication to reduce complaints of itching. At home, you are advised to minimize scratching so as not to cause injury to the skin, and avoid contact with irritative or allergenic ingredients.
