Overcoming Itching Between The Hands And Feet?
At noon, I have itching on my hands and legs, especially between my fingers. Then the appearance is uncertain. And it looks like a scratchy rash. What are the symptoms? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a rash like clawing that feels itchy in the area of the hands and feet can be caused by:
Infection, for example:
Scabies (scabies, mite infection)
Tinea pedis, tinea manum (fungal infection)
Tinea versicolor (tinea versicolor, fungal infection)
Miliaria (prickly heat)
Allergic or irritant contact dermatitis
Insect bites or other councils
Other skin conditions, such as xerosis, seborrheic dermatitis, drug eruption, psoriasis, and so on
The question now is, how long has your complaint appeared? Does it continue to spread to other areas of the body? Have you found similar complaints at the people closest to you?
To be clear about the cause of your complaint, you better check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist. Because, different causes can also be different handling. For mild conditions, doctors often provide local medicines in the form of ointments, powder, or special creams. However, in more severe cases, further tests (for example allergy tests or biopsies) can be done or other treatments may be given.
For now, you can try the tips below:
Avoid excessive scratching of the skin, even though itchy
Be diligent in bathing, washing hands and feet with antiseptic soap
Shorten your nails regularly
If your hands or feet are humid, dry them with a clean, non-deodorizing tissue
Avoid contact (directly or indirectly) between your skin that is experiencing complaints with others before being declared safe by a doctor
Avoid carelessly applying or consuming drugs without consulting a doctor first
Avoid contact between skin with irritative substances or allergic
