Spots On The Skin Of The Hands, Not Itchy And Not Red?
good afternoon, r nI am Feni, 23 years old. r n this way, I have a complaint about the skin. A few months ago I noticed that the skin on my hands was not red and itchy, but the color was the same as the skin in general like the pores of hair, but if you pay attention to the freckles, they are not hairy pores and my skin is not hairy. at first it only happened in one part but gradually spread and the spots are now also on my feet. r n r npreviously I have asked a dermatologist near where I live but he only gave cream and conveyed that it is an allergic reaction and dry skin. but when I used the cream that was given, there was no change. r n r nI do have a history of allergies and sensitive skin, to food and chemical products such as hair dye, but so far nothing for lotions, perfumes, or soaps. r nLaterally, the spots feel itchy but at first they weren’t. r n r is it true that this disease has an allergic reaction to air or chemicals or is it another disease? please infon, what is a good solution to deal with my worries. Thank you.
Hello Feni, thank you for the question
The allergic reaction your dermatologist is referring to is likely atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, recurrent skin inflammation with itching. It generally occurs during infancy and childhood but can also occur in young adults and is often associated with increased levels of immunoglobulin E in the blood and a family history of allergies or sufferers.
Symptoms of the skin in patients with atopic dermatitis are often diverse and different from one individual to another, and also between age groups. However, the same complaint and quite severe is itching difficult to bear, especially at night.
Risk factors for atopic dermatitis include:
2. History of allergy in patients and / or family
3. Environmental factors: small number of families, higher education of mothers, increased income, migration from villages to cities, and increased use of antibiotics.
4. History of sensitivity to wool, fur of cats, dogs, chickens, birds, and the like.
To prevent recurrence because this type of disease often recurs by avoiding the trigger factors, including:
1. Foods: eggs, milk, wheat, soybeans, and peanuts.
2. House dust mites
3. Frequent infections in the upper respiratory tract
If the complaint does not improve, it is recommended that you return to control with a dermatologist to assess whether there are other contributing factors that cause the response to treatment in your disease is less than optimal. Apart from avoiding the trigger factors above, also do regular exercise to increase endurance and avoid excessive stress exposure.
So, I hope this information can help you
