The Cause Of Suffering From Itching For 4 Years Never Healed?
It’s been 4 years since I suffered from itchiness, I have already been treated here and there, but some of it is itchy, what is the cause? Is it from my environment, food, or immune system that is very weak?
Hello Muhammad Aap, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Symptoms of itching can be caused by a variety of diseases. Some possibilities that happen to you are:
Atopic dermatitis Contact dermatitis. Mite / Scabies Infection. Tinea corporis. Of the several possibilities above, there are some common symptoms that arise such as redness, itching, and some appearance of skin disorders that can only be distinguished through direct examination by a doctor.
In the first possibility that atopic dermatitis is not known with certainty the cause of this disease, but it is strongly suspected that allergic reactions are the cause. Some conditions that can cause symptoms such as food, temperature, dust, etc.
Contact dermatitis is divided into two namely irritant contact and allergy box. Where differences occur in the substances / substances that cause symptoms. The word contact here means that direct skin contact occurs. In allergic contact, substances that cause complaints will only occur in certain people (such as watches, some types of soap, rings, etc.). While in irritant contact complaints will arise in all people when exposed to these substances (such as battery water, hard water, some types of detergent, byclean, alcohol, etc.).
The next possibility is mite infection / scabies. These lice or mites will nest in your kuit and will cause 3 typical complaints, namely: Itching will occur at night, occur in many people who live in the same house / room, and the discovery of mites or egg mites on the skin. Other symptoms such as runny skin, bumps occur between the fingers, etc. In this disease if it is not treated properly it will last a long time and can infect others so that it will be difficult to cure because of a ping-pong reaction.
Tinea is a skin infection caused by a fungus. In this possibility the typical symptom is the emergence of island-like shapes on the skin with a more active edge. Itching will be more felt if the skin sweats.
to differentiate some of the possibilities above need to be carried out direct examination by a doctor, in order to establish the diagnosis, and if needed a supporting examination can be done such as skin scrapings, allergic tests, etc.
I suggest you to consult with a dermatologist if the complaint is felt continuously and does not heal.
Right now what you can do is:
Avoid scratching the skin too hard. Evaluate yourself, look for the causes of itching. Avoid triggers of itching such as food, temperature, etc. Get enough rest, and keep your lifestyle. Avoid cigarettes and alcohol consumption. Exercise regularly can increase the body's weakness. Avoid using pants that are too tight. Dry skin when wet or sweaty. That's all I can answer, hopefully it helps.
Thank you very much :)
