The Pores Of The Skin Of The Calves And Thighs Open, Causing A Red Rash When Tired?
, I want to ask .. since September 2017 I have experienced dry, scaly skin, and if fatigue is accompanied by a red rash2. but only the calves, thighs only. in the hand only a little. Sometimes accompanied by a slight itching / burning sensation. And I also feel, I seem to get tired easily .. And every time I get tired, the red rash appears. but if you have slept one night; the next morning the red rash was all gone. but the dry and scaly skin in several places on the calves and thighs remains. r n r n What is this skin disease? r nI have been to the hospital but I am not satisfied with the results of the diagnosis because I was declared only allergic aabun / body lotion, I have used the same brand for years, it’s weird if it’s just an allergy now. So clearly the cause is not due to a soap allergy. r nPlease be informed so that I can immediately treat it with the appropriate medicine. Thank you.

A red rash on your body can be caused by any of the following:
Dermatophyte fungal infection of the skin (Tinea): rash that is round, with redder edges, feels itchy especially when sweating
Candida yeast infection (candidiasis cutis): a large reddish rash in the center surrounded by a small rash, often in the folds area
Congenital skin inflammation (atopic dermatitis): this disease can recur, is congenital and is often a hereditary disease. Can be accompanied by other congenital diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis
Hives (urticaria): slightly raised skin redness, often caused by food allergies
Skin inflammation due to contact allergies (allergic contact dermatitis)
Inflammation of the skin due to allergic irritants (irritant contact dermatitis): for example, prolonged exposure to detergents, exposure to acids / alkalis, exposure to tomcat body fluids
To determine the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will perform a detailed examination of your skin using a loop. If necessary, the doctor will perform supporting examinations such as examining skin scrapings to see the causing germs, and blood tests. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions. If deemed necessary or treatment does not improve, the doctor will refer you to a dermatologist.
Things you can do to improve and prevent worsening of your disease are:
Bathing at least 2x a day
Dry yourself after showering or after sweating
Wear thin, soft, and sweat-absorbing clothing
Do a patch test first every time you use a new product that is applied to the skin. You do this, by applying the product to a little part of the skin and then observing about a day after whether there is redness, itching, or burning. If there is this, it means you are allergic to the ingredients in the topical product.
Avoid foods that cause you allergies
Use a body moisturizer to avoid dryness of your skin
You can take over-the-counter drugs such as cetirizine to reduce your itching complaints
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get better soon :)
