The Cause Of Itching And Bumps On The Skin Every Time You Wake Up?
excuse me, I want to ask. At home, I have kept a cat since I entered college in 2013. I studied abroad, from 2013 to 2016 I rarely experienced itching when I returned home. But from early 2017 until now every time I’m at home I always experience itching that never ends. The characteristics of my itching are like mosquito bites but over time they fill with water or water nodules inside. And the itching is different from mosquito bites. I love finding animals that bite me small and like to jump like dust in their shape. But when I sleep, every morning I wake up suddenly like this bump without me knowing which animal bit it. What is this disease? Is this the so-called cat flea? How is it handled? Will this disease continue to affect me? For example, if this is a cat flea, why did I just get thdp in early 2017, open from the beginning of the year where I kept a cat? I’m not confident with the scars even though I’ve never scratched them. Thank you
Hi Fahriza, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Itching of the skin is caused by the body's reaction to certain substances, whether it comes from within the body itself such as bile or brought from the outside through insect bites. Among the causes of itching on the skin are:
Contact with irritating materials
In your case, the rash and itching that occurs every time you wake up in the morning, plus the traces of animal bites are indeed very likely to lead to animal bites. Lice can be one possibility, if accompanied by the appearance of small red bumps, clustered, has a circle outside, and can cause pain. Or simply if you suspect fleas, then try to check your cat's fur for fleas. Because if not, it must be animals or other factors that cause itching on your body.
But if you don't want to bother, our advice is to have your skin checked by a dermatologist and venereal specialist. Your doctor will recognize from the appearance of your skin, if your medical condition is trending. That way you can also get the right treatment as soon as possible. Meanwhile, what you can do at home is to bathe your cat, clean rooms or corners that have potential places for insects to gather, and use mosquito nets or insect spray before bed to protect yourself from being bitten. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
