Random itching throughout body. Allergy? - Online Doctor Chats
XXXXXXX XXXXXXX here
i just had query regarding the issues i m facing currently
Sure, go ahead
actually i get Random itching throughout my body
this happens randomly
anytime during the day
even at night
it stays for sometime and gets back to normal automatically
please let me now how this can be cured?
How long have you had this problem?
i have been facing from past 1 month
Is your skin dry?
Do you also have some kind of rash?
i am sorry, i didnt excatly understood rash
i mean the redness happens when i scrach while itching, otherwise no such rash
Ok, XXXXXXX. I think its a combination of dryness and some kind of random allergy
For the dryness, you'll need to use a thick moisturizer after you take a bath. Also dont use very hot water and dont take long baths
You can also use Oilatum solution in your bucket of water, 2 capfuls in 1 bucket
i have stopped using hot water long back
The water should be lukewarm
and i just heard from some of my friends dat this happens due to change in climate/environment
is it so?
and i also have some skin problem, for which i have been following doctors prescription
Thats why I told you take care of the dryness and put calamine lotion locally
Which skin conditions
can that be the cause for the itching?
You will have to tell me the diagnosis and the treatment that you are recieving
currently i am not having the prescription details with me,
You can log in later and tell me
Till then, try the suggestions I gave you
You'll be relieved
sure, but the doctors are randomnly assigned
how should i get in touch with you
Just come on chat and ask for Dr. XXXXXXX
Or email the details to me at YYYY@YYYY
In the subject line, write "Attention to Dr. Aparna"
also i just want a suggestion, you asked to use moisturizer, can you suggest some good ones
I think olive oil is a good one
and Venusia cream. Both are good
You'll get both at a local chemist
Use any one
ok, i need to apply it on entire body?
But put it on when your body is still damp
Thats why I suggested Oilatum solution
Take 2 capfuls and add to your bucket of water
It'll take care of the dryness
You dont have to put moisturizer then
i just need to ask for Oilatum solution to the chemist or is there any specific prescription
You will just need to ask for it
Its not a prescription drug
ok, thanks alot will try,
for how long should i use it?
Till the winters last
Say february or early march. you'll be fine soon. dont worry
oh great, thanks alot for your help
will get back to you if any queries
Thanks for consulting me
