Suggest treatment for itching on neck, hands and legs
I am facing of itching problem last few years. I was using some ointment Gentalene C. Its too much now a days. at my neck, Hands, Legs and private parts.
I have not yet visited any of the doctor till now.
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I would first like to ask you that whether the itching is associated with any rash. If yes kindly upload a picture so that a proper diagnosis is made and I can guide you in a better way.
Also are you taking medication for any other ailment?
kindly upload the photographs so that I can have a view of your problem.
Thanks for your quick response.
Send the pictures of your neck and private parts as well.
Itching problem is so long but never consult with doctor, this is the first time when i reaching to a doctor. So please suggest me what can I do as next step?
I have seen all the pictures you have uploaded. I can see increased darkening and thickening of your skin especially in the private area.This is because of the long history of itching either due to any internal problem or due to a disease called lichen simplex chronicus in which psychological factors are responsible for such extreme itching.
To exclude the internal factors you will have to undergo blood tests .These are complete blood count, liver function tests, kidney function tests, tsh, absolute eosinophil count,serum uric acid.
Also you have been using steroid cream on large areas of the body, I would recommend you to lessen its use and use it diluted in some moisturizing lotion till we find out the cause. Instead start with oral medication to control itching like hydroxyzine and levocetrizine.
I hope this information will definitely help you and you can get back to me with the results of the reports.
Wish you good luck.
