The Cause Of The Skin Becomes Itchy?
my doctor asked me why the skin could itch
Hello Sherkawi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Itching on the skin can be caused by many things, here are a few of them:
Dry skin, which can occur due to various causes such as bathing too often, bathing with water too hot, bathing with hard soap (such as antiseptic soap), cold and dry air, etc. Diseases of the skin, for example skin infections (can be by bacterial, viral, fungal, or parasitic), various types of dermatitis (contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, etc.), psoriasis, etc. Systemic diseases that can cause itchy skin, such as diabetes, kidney failure, cholestasis (obstruction in bile), liver failure, thyroid hormone disorders, etc. Food allergies or drugs Side effects of certain drugs and many more In diagnosing the cause of itching of the skin, it must be known more fully whether there are certain lesions on the skin (including the shape of the lesion and its location in body), history of certain diseases they have, history of drug or food allergies, history of consuming certain drugs regularly, history of illness in I'm family, and so on. To be able to find out the cause of your itchy skin, you should check with your doctor or a dermatologist first.
For the time being, try doing the following:
Avoid scratching itchy skin Look for the cause of your itchy skin and avoid triggering itching factors as much as possible Apply a moisturizer on the skin regularly, especially after you take a shower. Compress the itchy area with a cold compress (unless it is cold, it triggers itching of your skin) Antihistamine drugs can help reduce itching, even if the cause is not allergic, this drug will not permanently eliminate the itching.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
