Hello Cheerful, Thank you for the question.
Have you ever experienced a similar complaint before? Complaints of itching on the palms after washing can be caused by contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis is an inflammatory condition of the skin due to contact with certain substances or ingredients. Contact dermatitis can cause symptoms of skin redness, itching, burning, dryness, and peeling. Contact dermatitis can be divided into allergic contact dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis. In addition to contact dermatitis, itching complaints can also be caused by:
ringworm, which is a fungal infection of the skin
scabies, an infection caused by Sarkoptes scabiei mite that causes a rash that feels very itchy especially at night
Because of the many possible causes, then to be sure you should consult a doctor. Please consult with a dermatologist especially if the symptoms have been going on for some time. The doctor will ask about your complaints and do a check on your skin. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment. For now, avoid exposure to soap, laundry detergents, clothes deodorizers, dishwashing soap, and other cleaning liquids on your hands. Avoid personal items with other people such as towels or clothes. You are also advised to avoid scratching the itchy part. You can use salicyl powder or calamine lotion or compress cold water on the itchy area to relieve itching complaints.
I hope this helps.
