Red Rashes On The Skin Accompanied By Itching?
, last Sunday I went to the beach, the conditions there are hot and make me sweat. When I go home to my friend who is around the beach, I take a shower. The water there is different from the water in my mountainous area. At that time I felt something was different on my skin, I thought because it was hot. Then we eat seafood, I do have an allergy to shrimp. But to my knowledge only shrimp. When I returned home, I experienced itching around my chin, breasts and back. And cheeks and forehead. Itchy red and initially like a mosquito bite, it has been 5 days and has not healed. Is not if allergies will not be this long? I also have not taken any allergy medication, only given a powder so that it does not itch. Is this an allergic effect or what?
Hello, Vitaliana. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We understand the concern you feel.
Symptoms in the form of reddish skin accompanied by itching as conveyed can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Allergic contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to contact with substances attached to the skin, is related to processes in the body's immune system (immune formation occurs against allergenic substances [eg: latex, marine animal protein, plant pollen]), symptoms can occur after repeated exposure to allergenic substances Irritant contact dermatitis, ie inflammation of the skin due to contact with substances that are attached to the skin, not related to processes in the immune system (complaints can arise immediately upon initial exposure to irritative substances [detergents, soaps, chemicals, etc. ]) Atopic dermatitis, which is chronic and recurrent inflammation of the skin, associated with a history of atopy (allergic rhinitis, asthma, allergic conjunctivitis) in patients / families Hypersensitivity to insect bites You are advised to consult a doctor or dermatologist for anamnesis, physical examination, examination , and support (if necessary, for example, a skin lift test for examination al ergi) so that the underlying disease can be determined and given appropriate treatment. Your doctor may prescribe ointments / creams, and oral medication to relieve itching.
At home, it is recommended to avoid exposure to substances that are suspected of triggering complaints, use softer (relatively non-irritating) soaps, such as baby soap, and eat balanced nutritious foods
