I want to ask .. My parents often itchy, I don’t know, because it originates all over the body itchy itchy every day, it’s been long time not recovered “guess what the disease is … And what medicine is suitable?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints of itching all over the body can be caused by several possibilities, which are common include:
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 substances) in patients or families
Allergic reaction to certain drugs or foods
Scabies, a skin disease caused by a parasitic infection Sarcoptes scabiei, a complaint in the form of a skin rash that usually occurs in the area between the fingers, buttocks, around the genitals, armpit folding, itching that mainly occurs at night, occurs in a group of people who live together, for example: boarders or family members who live together
Allergic contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to contact with substances that stick to the skin, is related to the body's immune system response to allergenic substances [eg: latex, marine animal protein, plant pollen]), symptoms usually arise after repeated exposure to allergenic ingredients
Irritant contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to contact with irritative substances (detergents, soap, chemicals, etc.) attached to the skin, not related to the process of immune formation, symptoms can immediately appear at the initial exposure to irritative substances
If the complaint is felt to be so disturbing, it is recommended that you consult your parents directly to a doctor or dermatologist so that you can evaluate and provide the necessary treatment. The doctor will do anamnesis, physical examination, and support (if there are indications, for example: skin test for allergy testing). Your doctor may give you medication in the form of creams / ointments to be applied to the skin that has complaints, as well as oral medication to relieve itching. Your doctor may also provide advice on skin care products that are suitable for your parents' individual needs based on the patient's skin condition.
As a suggestion at home, your parents are advised to avoid exposure / contact with substances that are suspected of triggering complaints of itching, bathing and washing clothes regularly, and use softer (relatively non-irritating) soaps such as baby soap.
