need some details to guide you better
My name is Dr Muhammad Ali Rauf & i will look into your problem.
I have gone through your query and would try to help you in the best possible way. There could be a number of causes for your complaint. I would be in a better position to guide you if you answer following questions please:
1. is anyone else in the family also having similar complaint?
2. did it start after taking some particular food or after going to bed?
3. are you allergic to some food?
4. did such problem occur in past?
5. do you have diabetes, hypertension or any other illness?
6. are you on any medication?
7. is there appearance of rash as well? If yes then please share an image of the rash.
8. does itch specifically occur between fingers digits & groin area?
I will be looking forward for the answers to conclude the discussion in the best interest of yours.
Most probably allergic reaction
Thank you for getting back with the answers. I have gone through them. There is possibility that it occurred in response to an allergic reaction. If i were your treating doctor then i would have advised following things:
- cetirizine one at night for 2 days
- apply vaseline/lotion on elbow to prevent friction.
- try to avoid dust
Hopefully it will further resolve in 2-3 days. If condition remains same or aggravates then you need to visit hospital and get an appointment for a "Consultant Dermatologist" for further workup.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
