The Whole Body Itches Until Reddish Bumps?
Good evening, I’m Salsabila. It’s been 3 days my body condition is not good. All the skin on my body feels itchy, reddish and even initially only 1 small bump, more and more days and spread throughout the body. At night I catch a cold and cough with phlegm so that I have difficulty breathing (shortness of breath), my body temperature also rises to 38 centigrade so I feel like I have a fever. I have often consumed the drugs Ceftirizine and Telfast, but often recur again. In fact, almost every month I experience this. It’s been 3 years I have experienced this, but I do not know what causes it? And what am I allergic to? Thank you for the help
Hello Salsabila, Thank you for the question.
Have you ever consulted further with your doctor considering this complaint has occurred during the last 3 years? If you want to know the exact cause of this complaint, of course, you should consult with your doctor directly. Without a doctor's examination, it's impossible to determine the cause.
Do any of these symptoms occur, you also experience certain symptoms of infection such as cough, runny nose, and fever that you mentioned? Allergic reactions occur because the wrong immune system reacts to things that should not be harmful to the body by releasing inflammatory substances and histamine which then causes a number of symptoms. Allergic reactions can cause symptoms of biduran, swollen eyes, redness, itching, swollen and itchy lips, sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, difficulty breathing, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea. Fever is not a common symptom of an allergic reaction. If this complaint is always accompanied by fever or symptoms of infection, it may be caused by erythema multiforme. Erythema multiforme is a skin disorder characterized by the appearance of a red rash on the skin. This condition is related to infection, consumption of certain drugs, consumption of certain foods, contact with certain substances, hormonal changes, and others.
To ascertain the cause of your complaint, it is recommended that you consult with a dermatologist directly. Your doctor will ask about your complaints, examine you, and suggest an allergy test if you suspect that your symptoms are an allergic reaction. From this allergy test, you will find out what things can trigger allergies. Information about things that can trigger allergies is important information you know because if you have allergies, the main treatment is to avoid things that can trigger allergies because allergies cannot be cured. Existing treatment aims to control allergy symptoms. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will provide the appropriate treatment.
In the meantime, avoid scratching the itchy skin area, you can use salicyl powder or calamine lotion to temporarily relieve itching. Take care of your body's health by consuming nutritious food, adequate intake of body fluids, resting regularly, exercising regularly, and managing stress well.
I hope this helps.
