The Cause Of Skin Feels Itchy And Uncomfortable?
Hello doctor, I want to ask why my skin is itchy and seems to have prickly heat but is very itchy
Hello, thanks for the question.
Itching is an uncomfortable feeling on the skin that causes a desire to scratch. Itching is a common complaint and many causes. Can be caused due to skin diseases, such as infections (fungi, bacteria, viruses, or parasites), dermatitis, psoriasis, insect bites; allergic reactions, such as food allergies, drugs, dust, insects, or due to contact with certain substances that are irritant / allergen; or it could be due to systemic diseases such as diabetes, liver disease, kidney failure, neurological disorders, or it could also arise due to psychological disorders. If it feels very disturbing, you should consult a dermatologist to get the right treatment, especially if itching complaints are felt to be annoying, do not improve with treatment, have been going on for a long time, and often repeat. The doctor will conduct a direct examination to ask for complaints and see the condition of the lesion directly so that appropriate treatment can be determined. It is better to avoid scratching the itchy area, cold compresses on the itchy area, keep the cleanliness and moisture of the skin, and avoid the factors that trigger the onset of complaints.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
