The Appearance Of Itching And Bumps On The Skin After Contact With Certain Plants?
At that time, I pulled out the sweet potato, then a red spot appeared on the upper wrist of my right hand, after which the itching spread to form a pile around my hand and spread to the left hand too. If the pile itching is self-inflating, if it doesn’t itch, it goes flat
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of itching and bumps on the skin after contact with certain plants is likely due to urticaria. This condition arises due to inflammation of the skin which can be triggered by contact with certain substances, including vines, which causes the release of certain chemical mediators, namely histamine, resulting in various complaints, not only itching, bumps, but also heat, redness, and swelling. swelling of the skin. Often times, complaints due to urticaria can spread to other parts of the body that are not in direct contact with the substance that triggers it, even throughout the body.
Not only plants, urticaria can also appear due to food, medications, common allergens (eg pollen, animal fleas, latex), insect bites, environmental factors (eg heat, cold, sunshine, water), excessive pressure on the skin, emotional stress, excessive physical exercise, genetics (heredity), to the presence of certain diseases, for example lupus, lymphoma, thyroid gland disorders, HIV, hepatitis, and so on.
In addition to urticaria, your complaints may also arise due to other factors, such as atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, tinea manum (fungus), scabies (scabies), miliaria (prickly heat), impetigo, folliculitis, insect bites, and so on.
Has your complaint lasted more than 24 hours and has not improved? If so, you should not delay going to a doctor or dermatologist directly. Doctors need to directly evaluate the complaints on your skin to identify the exact cause. If it is true that your complaint arises due to urticaria, generally the condition is mild and can be improved with medication (whether taken by mouth or injected drugs).
In the meantime, you can first go through the following tips:
Do not scratch excessively itchy skin Wear clothes that are cool, not tight. Shower regularly, use cool water (not cold, not warm). Avoid contact with plants and other substances that have the potential to trigger allergies (as mentioned above). Excessive emotional stress (including stress, anxiety) Do not rub the skin excessively Apply calamine lotion on itchy skin Not taking any medication Hope it helps, yes ..
