Hello, robert24, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Bumps and itching that often arise at night can be caused by several possible causes:
1. Urticaria / hives. It is characterized by slight elevation of the skin that forms “islands” and is itchy. Often triggered by cold or hot air, or if there is an allergic reaction. Urticaria can be a warning sign of a disease such as angioedema and anaphylactic reactions which are usually accompanied by vomiting, shortness of breath, and wheezing. Urticaria is often intermittent, if it disappears and appears for less than 6 weeks, it is called acute urticaria, and if it disappears and occurs for more than 6 weeks, it is called chronic urticaria.
2. Scabies often causes itching at night but the bumps will remain throughout the day
3. Atopic dermatitis
5. Conditions outside the skin such as psychological stress, anemia, kidney disorders, liver disorders
To confirm the diagnosis, it is necessary to have a doctor's examination, especially if the symptoms are very disturbing and accompanied by symptoms such as shortness of breath, wheezing (sound of "squeaking"), vomiting, and dizziness. The doctor will conduct an in-depth interview and physical examination. If needed, additional investigations such as skin scrapings, allergy tests, or other blood tests will also be carried out.
What you can do to prevent worsening is to prevent exposure to things that trigger symptoms or trigger allergies. For example, symptoms appear when the air is cold, so prevent yourself from being exposed to the cold air by wearing warm and dry clothes, and adjusting the room temperature. To reduce itching, you can use an antihistamine, but you need to talk to your doctor about the right dose. Lifestyle changes such as avoiding smoking, getting enough rest, exercising regularly, avoiding stress, maintaining body hygiene, and getting enough fluids can keep your body in shape, thereby reducing and preventing recurring symptoms.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
