Red Itchy Rash On The Right Elbow?
at noon, the name is riyanto, 34 years old.. it’s been more than a year my right elbow itches there is a small red bump, an incident that I have never experienced since childhood, about 15-20 small bumps / pimples. I’ve been to the doctor 4 times and it still doesn’t heal, the doctor says it’s eczema. surprisingly, it’s just that the right elbow doesn’t move/widen. the first u0026 the second I checked at the Labuan Bajo doctor, ntt.. the first time I was given medicine, I forgot the name, the second to a different doctor was given medicine too + Esperson brand skin ointment, the third was a different doctor again I checked in Jogja, Diksh medicine + Esperson too, the fourth time I went to the Pekalongan doctor for treatment, he was given medicine + fluocort ointment. But until now it didn’t heal, until I bought my own Esperson at the HBs 5 pharmacy, Fluocort 3. Why is this, what medicine should I buy? sometimes I can’t stand the itching, I just give hot water, until I want to take a knife and take the skin… please give the best answer, what medicine can I buy online, considering my current position on an island far from a reliable doctor..r I don’t have any dirty bad habits, I like cleanliness, I also take a bath at least 3 times. my worst habit is just:rn1. smoke 3-4 packs/dayrn2. I just consume 500ml of vodka/dayrthat’s all, and I don’t think that’s the cause of the itching, because it’s an old habit of mine. thanks in advance, regards.

The appearance of itchy red nodules on the elbows that do not go away may have many causes, including eczema (atopic dermatitis). This condition occurs because the patient has excessive sensitivity in responding to a substance that is considered harmful to the body, when in fact it is not. As a result, the body will produce many chemical mediators, including histamine, which plays a role in mediating itching on the skin. Not always eczema symptoms will spread throughout the body. It could also be that this condition only occurs locally and is limited to certain areas of the body, including the elbows.
In addition to eczema, your itching can also occur due to other causes, such as bacterial, fungal, viral, or mite infections, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, neurodermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, drug eruptions, lichen planus, lupus, and so on. Of course, each of these possible causes can only be ruled out through a direct doctor's examination.
It is a good habit to always maintain cleanliness to avoid the risk of infection and other skin diseases. However, if you think there is no direct relationship between smoking and alcohol consumption and the itching you are experiencing, then this needs to be straightened out. Many studies say that excessive alcohol consumption can trigger various skin problems, ranging from atopic dermatitis, telangiectasia (redness of the skin), itching, and hyperpigmentation (dark skin). This condition is often associated with impaired liver function, which is often experienced by people who experience alcohol intoxication. While smoking, in addition to causing the skin to look older than your actual age, it can also increase the risk of psoriasis, pustulosis, and various other skin complaints.
Therefore, you should check with a dermatologist and venereal specialist for a thorough evaluation of the complaints you are experiencing. It is impossible for us to prescribe the right treatment without examining your complaint in person, because this could potentially exacerbate your complaint. If necessary, the doctor may perform allergy tests or take a tissue sample from the itchy skin for microscopic examination of the constituent cells.
In the meantime, you should not buy drugs indiscriminately (except over-the-counter drugs) unless they are prescribed directly by a doctor. Take the following steps first to minimize your complaints:
Don't scratch the itchy skin too much
Take a shower regularly, use room temperature water, not warm water, let alone hot --- warm or hot temperatures can make itching worse
If you have an allergy to a substance, avoid exposure to that substance
Wear comfortable and soft clothes
Do not exchange towels and clothes with other people
Don't stress or worry too much
To reduce itching, apply calamine lotion or sprinkle salicylic powder on itchy skin
Smoking and its effects on the skin
Cutaneous adverse effects of alcohol
Hope it helps ya..
