I can’t go outside to see a doctor, because now there is an epidemic … please answer yes

Hello Siti, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Complaints about itching in the elbow and knee can be caused by various conditions including:


Impetigo, is a bacterial skin infection
Psoriasis
Allergic / irritant reaction

Scabies, a skin infection caused by S. scabiei
Atopic eczema
Allergic / irritant contact dermatitis
Neurodermatitis

To deal with it precisely certainly need to know the exact cause. Therefore it is advisable for you to see a doctor to do a direct examination of your skin and do some other additional checks that are needed such as dermoscopi examination, skin prick test, Burrow ink, and so on. If the cause of the complaint is a bacterial infection, antibiotics should be given, but if it is due to an allergy, the treatment is in the form of an anti-allergic drug.


For now things you can do are:

Do not scratch the itchy area because it will cause erosion of the skin and the risk of secondary infection that can be accompanied by pus
Clean the area around the knees and elbows
Do not use personal items together such as towels, underwear, and so on
Avoid triggering complaints
Manage stress well because complaints can arise due to stress factors
