Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Itching accompanied by a red rash on the skin can be caused by various causes, here are some of them:
skin infections, can be by viruses (such as chicken pox, shingles), fungi, bacteria, or parasites (such as scabies or worm infections) atopic dermatitis contact dermatitis seborrheic dermatitis dishidrotic dermatitis psoriasis dry skin allergic animal / insect bites etc. Above mentioned have different treatments, therefore it must be known in advance the exact cause of itching and rashes on your skin. Providing treatment that is not appropriate to the cause is not only ineffective in curing patients, but can actually worsen the condition of your skin. We recommend that you do an examination to a dermatologist to determine the cause first. Given the corona virus pandemic now, it is best to check if the conditions are very urgent. If itching can still be withstand, you should postpone the examination to the doctor until the pandemic is over.
For now, there are a number of things you can do:
Keep your skin clean Avoid skin contact with chemicals (including harsh soaps, detergents, cleaning fluids, etc.) Avoid scratching your skin Use gloves when you wash dishes or wash your clothes Use a moisturizer after you wash your hands or take a shower Compress skin with cold compresses or use lotion containing calamine to help reduce itching
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
