Could you helpI I am 75 years old male ,did not have any health problems so far I used to take fish oil and centrum tablets almost regularly and also ecospirin-75 .Sometimes some red patches appeared in some parts of the body and vanished after a few days One dermatologist was of opinion that it may be due to some allergic reaction. A few months back i noticed that Ihad BP 180/100 and so I have started taking Losar-25. Can you give me some advice.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum

At your age , itching is common, its due to dryness of skin. If there are patches it can be due to scabies or urticaria (hives).

High blood sugar can be another possibility.

So get your bld sugar chked. And visit a dermatolgist or a homeopath for a confim diagnosis , and then treatment.

Calendula + aloevear lotion will be soothing.

Welcome to Healthcare magic
Firstly I would suggest you to continue with your Allopathic medicines Ecosprin and Losar and get your sugar levels also checked ,to be on safer side. For your Allergic Dermatitis you can start taking FORMULA-D.. 1 TABLET TWICE DAILY. Increase your water intake and avoid taking dryfriuts for the time being as they are heat producing and can increase your itching problem.

Thanks and take care

The humidity or moistness in the region can cause itching or any sort of infestation with scabies etc. you can apply six c oint or wash with baking soda. The red patches you get can be patechial haemorrhage due to side effect of asprin. internally haidra khand and gandhak rasayan is administered.
