The Causes And Ways To Deal With Itching Never Disappear Until Blackened?
At night I want to ask my child that the itching doesn’t disappear even though it’s been a long time, until there are scratch marks on his whole body in black and black
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should explain in advance, since exactly when the itching was felt, where was it felt, and how the skin rash that appeared when it first started.
Itching on the skin has many causes, here are some of them:
allergies (drug allergies, food, and can also be caused by certain physical exposures such as heat, cold, sunlight, sweat, friction on the skin, etc.)
various forms of dermatitis (contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, intertriginous dermatitis)
viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infections
insect bites or other small animals
other skin diseases like psoriasis
systemic diseases that can cause itching on the skin such as liver disorders, kidney disorders, thyroid disorders, and so forth
If indeed the itching does not go away, you should take your child to a dermatologist for further evaluation to find the cause of the itching. The cause of the itching must be found and overcome so that itching does not occur again.
For now, some things you can do:
Prevent your child from scratching his skin
Keep your skin clean, ask your child not to play in dirty places first and bathe the child regularly
Prevent children from exchanging towels or clothing with other children / adults
Give a skin moisturizer that does not contain fragrance, especially after bathing, apply several times a day if the skin feels dry
Apply lotion containing calamine to help reduce itching
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
