The Cause Of Skin Is Reddish And Itchy?
, I want to ask. So like this, more than a week every night, my body feels itchy, but I let it. But now, every time I press something, my skin immediately makes a red and itchy feeling in the depressed area. For example, for example, I scratched the arm 1-2-1 me then appeared scratching marks rather swollen like it was bitten by mosquitoes, red and itchy. Please the solution, is this really an allergy symptom? And what drugs are safe for consumption? Thank you in advance for your time.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
An allergic reaction is an overreaction of the immune system to allergens (allergens) that enter the body. People who suffer from allergic diseases are hypersensitive. This hypersensitivity will be genetically inherited. So that someone with asthma will have one parent or relative who also has asthma.
Allergic reactions can occur with mild to severe symptoms. Mild symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy and runny red eyes, itching on the skin and others. While severe symptoms are in the form of anaphylactic reactions.
To establish a diagnosis of allergies to certain substances, it is necessary to check the allergy test. There are many types of allergy tests that can be done, namely blood tests, skin tests and elimination diets. There are many types of skin tests, namely intradermal test, prick, scratch and paste. As you experience is the principle of the scratch test. So maybe you might have an allergic disease. It is best to consult with an internist in an immunologist. So that further inspection can be done.
The main treatment for someone who has an allergic reaction to the body is to avoid allergens. If an allergic reaction has formed, any can take anti-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory drugs, such as the corticosteroid BNN and antihistamines. Whereas itchy skin can be given an ice pack to relieve symptoms.
Thus hopefully useful.
