Treat Prolonged Allergies?
Hello doctor, I have a problem with allergies, it’s been 2 months I have experienced symptoms of itching in the body, legs, hands, from the beginning have been to the doctor too and given consumption
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Drugs that you consume are included in the corticosteroid class, and this class of drugs should not be used for a long period of time, especially if without supervision. That's why this drug is included in the label of hard drugs and requires a prescription.
What you may not understand is that allergies cannot be cured. Allergy is the body's excessive response to a substance called an allergen, which allergens can take various forms and differ in each person. There are allergens dust, eggs, milk, cheese, crabs, shrimp, beans, pollen, various drugs, insect bites, cold air, even water can be a cause of allergies. The excess response can be in the form of itching, red discharge, diarrhea, runny eyes and nose, so that the severe is a decrease in consciousness and fainting.
It is still unknown what causes allergies that occur in a person. But so far as long as the allergen triggers are still present, the symptoms will continue to return, even though it has been treated by drugs. In your case, for example, if you are allergic to eggs, when you take medicine your complaints may improve, but if after you consume eggs again, your symptoms will return. Some people do actually recover from allergies. But the cure is without medication, it just goes away by itself, and so far there hasn't been an explanation as to why in some people, the allergies can suddenly disappear just like that.
But of course, that's if you really have allergies. There are various kinds of conditions besides allergies that can cause itchy symptoms like you experience. Among them are xerosis or dry skin, nerve disorders, fungal infections, psoriasis, lichen planus, and bile disorders can make itchy.
Therefore, our advice to you now, you try to return to one of the doctors who have treated you and ask if you really have allergies. If you are allergic, discuss with your doctor what are the causes or triggers that you can avoid. Because as we said before, as long as the trigger is not removed, the symptoms will continue to return. If the trigger is hard to find, you can ask your dermatologist to do an allergy test on you, and if it turns out it's still not found, ask what other possible causes of your condition. As a patient, you have every right to this.
What is clear, you must routinely check yourself to the doctor as long as his condition has not been addressed so that your doctor can continue to evaluate yourself. With an evaluation, your doctor will be able to determine whether you still have to continue to take the same medicine, change it, reduce the dose gradually, or be referred to another doctor or another more complete health care facility. So, hopefully answering your question.
