Why Does Body Skin Often Itch And Get Pimples When The Air Conditions Are Dusty?
Hello doctor, I want to ask about skin. Why do I often itch when dusty air conditions (for example: cleaning the room or on the highway). Itchy skin is only in the body part and when removing clothes the intensity of the itching decreases slightly.2. Why is my whole body covered in clothes and pants with pimples? Even though I don’t have too many zits on my face, thank you for the reply
Hello Jonathan, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
To answer your first question, I want to confirm first, does the itching that you feel does occur every time there is exposure to dust (for example, you do not participate in cleaning dust and are only exposed to dust, does your body also experience itching?), Or itching You appear more often because of sweating conditions (for example you exercise and sweat, you are not exposed to dust, does the itch also appear?)
Basically the dust itself does not cause allergies. More allergies occur due to dust lice (fleas that live in dusty places). Allergic reactions that arise due to dust lice are usually more on allergic reactions in the respiratory tract, such as sneezing, colds, coughing, shortness of breath, etc., although allergic reactions to the skin may also occur. But if you see your story (itching is more in the area of the body and improves when you take off your clothes), the possibility of itching that you experience is more caused by your sweat. Itching due to sweating can occur due to prickly heat (miliaria) or physical urticaria (itchy bumps on the skin that arise due to physical contact such as exposure to heat, cold, sweat, sun, scratching or friction on the skin, etc.). Acne or pimples on the body can also cause itching, itching can also be heavy on hot and sweaty conditions. To help reduce the itchiness that you feel, here are some things you can do:
Use only thin clothing made from materials that absorb sweat if you change your clothes to get wet because of sweat cleaning in a cool room, bathing with cool water to help reduce itching. You may also use lotions containing calamine to relieve itching. Acne can basically occur in any part of the body that contains many sebaceous glands (oil glands). Areas of the body that contain a lot of sebaceous glands include the face, chest, back, shoulders, upper arms, back of the neck, and also in the buttocks area. As acne can appear on the face, acne can also appear in these areas of the body. Here are some things you can do to help deal with acne on the body:
Wear loose clothing made of material that absorbs sweat and is also soft (so there is not much rubbing against the skin). Avoid using backpacks that rub against the acne area on the back. Bathing regularly with mild soap (no need to use antiseptic soap that is soft) it can actually dry the skin) Take a shower immediately after you exercise or after you sweat a lot Don't rub your body too hard when bathing or when you towel. Excessive friction can trigger more acne. You can choose soap containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. If the condition of acne on your body is very annoying, you should further consult with a dermatologist.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
