Redness And Itching On The Body?
Hello? I want to ask, I have experienced itching in certain areas such as instep, knees and neck. Swollen and red. What’s the cause? The thing is, if it is said that my food allergy has not eaten anything this morning and if the insect is allergic, my feelings have not been bitten by anything, why should I? And how to overcome if this happens again? Ok, thanks, please explain! Oh yes, I have experienced this before, but I don’t know the cause of it.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints in the form of sudden appearance of redness swelling at several locations of the body that feels itchy can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Urticaria (biduran), which is an immunological reaction of the skin with symptoms in the form of bumps, reddish, well-defined, appearing suddenly, can disappear slowly within 24-48 hours, usually accompanied by complaints of itching / stinging / like being stabbed., Factors triggers: contact with allergenic substances [example: latex, marine animal protein, plant pollen), exposure to cold air, or the use of certain drugs (example: antibiotics)
Atopic dermatitis, which is chronic and recurrent skin inflammation, is associated with a history of atopy (asthma, frequent sneezing and runny nose in the morning, eyes often red after exposure to allergenic ingredients) in patients / families
Allergic contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to contact with allergenic substances that stick to the skin, is related to the body's immune system response to allergenic ingredients, symptoms usually arise after repeated exposure to allergenic ingredients
Hypersensitivity to insect bites
If the complaint is disturbing, we advise you to check directly with a doctor or dermatologist so that evaluation and treatment is needed. The doctor will perform anamnesis, physical examination, and support (according to the indications found, for example: skin test for allergy testing). Your doctor may give you a medication in the form of a cream / ointment to be applied to the affected part of the skin, as well as oral medication to relieve itching and / or to treat inflammation.
As a suggestion, you should avoid exposure to substances that are suspected of triggering complaints, washing clothes and bathing regularly, and using softer (relatively non-irritating) soaps such as baby soap.
