Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of swelling on the skin which then develops into sores, runny, then itchy, can indeed indicate an allergy. Various allergens can trigger this condition, for example food, medicine, climate, latex, clothing, soap, and so on. Exposure to this allergen into the body, or direct contact with the skin, can trigger the release of certain chemical mediators that are responsible for the appearance of various clinical symptoms that you experience. Often, by avoiding the allergen triggers, complaints will improve by itself in mild conditions. However, complaints can also heal longer in more severe cases, especially if accompanied by a secondary infection of the skin rash that appears. Not yet clear what exactly causes a person can experience an allergic reaction like this. However, genetic and environmental factors are thought to play an important role in this regard.
Not only allergies, various other conditions, for example skin infections (for example due to fungus, scabies, impetigo, folliculitis, viruses), contact dermatitis, psoriasis, drug eruptions, dermatitis herpetiformis, insect bites or other animals, etc. can also cause complaints such as that you experience. Poorly maintained personal hygiene, and less than optimal immune system can further increase your risk of having more severe skin problems.
It is better, given your condition that has appeared a long time ago, and spread to other areas of the skin, you have to see yourself again to a doctor or dermatologist. By checking the condition of your skin directly, or doing additional tests, such as allergy tests, blood tests, examination of skin tissue samples, etc., often the right treatment can be identified.
For now, here are our suggestions:
Do not scratch the problematic skin, even though it feels itchy. To help relieve itching, you can first apply calamine lotion. Clean and diligent bathing 2 times a day. Do not rub excessive skin, let alone slough off the rash on the skin. Dry your body well before dressing. clean, dry, loose, made from soft, and absorb sweat Do not exchange personal belongings with others Drink more Avoid avoid contact with any substance that is prone to make you allergic.
