What Causes Itchy Skin and How to Cure It
Hello everyone. I am doctor Sirisha Singh. I am a dermatologist and aesthetic dermatologist. We are going to do a brief talk on itching of the skin during summers and how to avoid itching of the skin during summers and how treat the itching of the skin during summers. Itching of the skin during summers is a very common problem. It is particularly common in people who inherently have dry skin even people who do not have inherently have dry skin if they live in areas where where there is low ambient humidity as we do have in Delhi,.
India we tend to develop dry skin during summers due to the low humidity. Summers also comes with a lot of sweating and accumulation of sweat on the surface of the skin also results in itching of the skin. In addition to this we tend to take several baths during summers to try and cool down our body temperature. During these baths if you use a harsh soap or a harsh cleanser it can further dry out the skin and cause itching of the skin. This topic focuses specifically on itching of the skin without the presence of a rash that is.
Itching with no underlying skin infection. to avoid itching of the skin the most important step is to use a gentle non foaming cleanser while taking a bath and one could take a bath with lukewarm water or cool water to try and cool down the skin. The gentle non foaming cleanser will prevent the skin from drying out and will prevent the itching from getting worse. Once could also take a bath with oatmeal. That is in a tub of bath water you could put half a cup of ground oatmeal. The oatmeal cleanses the skin and at the same time hydrates.
The skin effectively to prevent drying of the skin and to prevent excessive itching of the skin. Another way of looking after hydration of skin is looking at what we consume. It is advisable to consume a lots of fruits and vegetables. Particularly juicy fruits and vegetables which have a lot of fluid and also concentrate on drinking about two to three litres of water during the day. Because we not only need to look after the water requirements of the body but due to sweating we lose extra water and that extra water needs to be replenished.
In the body system. One could also wear clothes which are made of cotton or linen. So clothes with loose breathable fabric to prevent sweating of the skin and to prevent blockage of the sweat glands of the skin. In addition to this a lot of people feel that we don't really need a moisturiser on the skin. But if you are living in an environment like Delhi where whether is quite dry the skin tends to get dry in summers, one would need a moisturiser. However one needs to use a very light moisturiser. Perhaps a moisturiser which contains aloe.
Vera which works very gently on the surface of the skin without blocking up the sweat glands of the skin. If in spite of all these problems you do have intractable itching you might have an underlying medical condition or you might have a certain skin infection which does not show up as rash on the surface of the skin and it is advisable to consult a dermatologist for further advice and treatment of your underlying problems. If you have any further queries feel free to contact me my contact details are given in the description.
DermTV Very Itchy Fingers, a.k.a. Dishydrosis DermTV Epi '6
Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV. This may be the season for itchy skin, but chances are if it's your fingers that are itching, it's not because they're dry. Most of the time, itchy fingers are caused by a condition called Dishydrosis and the itch it causes can really drive you crazy. And it's not just itching that Dishydrosis causes You actually get little bumps on the bottom and sides of your fingers. And the bumps are actually tiny blisters. Dishydrosis literally means, bad sweating, and it used to be thought that these crazily itchy bumps.
Were filled with sweat. That's why it was named Dishydrosis. But the fluid isn't sweat it's actually serum, which is the clear fluid in your blood. The most common cause of Dishydrosis is extreme stress, although not every outbreak can be linked directly to a stressful situation. On a personal note, I can tell you that I've only experienced Dishydrosis once in my life. It was early in my medical training after a very stressful night of being up all night taking care of a lot of very sick patients. The next morning the hospital dermatologist was making rounds.
And I showed him my hands, and he said, Boy you must have had a really rough night. So. The itching and bumps both finally go away after a few days. As it gets better, there are these really interesting telltale little collars of dead flaky skin that peel off. Those tiny matchhead size collars of dead skin get larger. and then smaller. over a few days and are caused by the bubble of serum as it rises through the higher levels of the epidermis. It's like taking horizontal slices through a sphere.
Starting tiny at the bottom, then getting larger, and finally smaller again. To treat the itching and bumps, topical cortisone creams and antiitch lotions with menthol are best. If that doesn't stop the itch, cold water can usually give temporary relief, but never try to stop the itching with hot water. Even though hot water feels good and stops the itch, it also causes the itch to come back worse a few minutes later. After the itch and bumps are gone, the flaking skin can continue for a week. It can be camouflaged with a moisturizer,.
What are Food Allergies HealthiNation
Food allergies happen when your body mistakenly thinks that the food you just ate is dangerous. Just a small amount of a particular food can trigger the body's immune system to develop an allergic reaction. These reactions can range from simple hives on the skin to more serious complications including anaphylaxis, which is a whole body reaction that can be fatal. So, they can be serious. A food allergy can develop immediately after a food is eaten or even a few hours later. The symptoms you should be watching out for are hives, which are small, itchy red bumps.
That look like wheels, or blotches on the skin. You may also have symptoms you'd see with asthma like wheezing, and coughing. Other symptoms could include diarrhea, vomiting, itching of the mouth and throat, swelling in the mouth and throat and abdominal pain. These symptoms can mean that you're allergic to certain foods, but some of them can also be caused by food intolerance. People who are lactose intolerant may feel sick after drinking milk, but they aren't allergic to milk. That's because the discomfort from food intolerance isn't caused by the immune system, so those aren't called allergies.
People most often have food allergies to nuts, dairy products, wheat, and certain fish. These are the most common because they contain certain proteins that in some people set off an allergic reaction. Those reactions start when a natural immune system antibody called immunoglobin E or IGE triggers the release of histamine and other chemicals. The chemical histamine causes allergy symptoms like hives and sneezing. You can visit an allergist to find out if you have food allergy. The physician will ask questions about your family history and the symptoms that you've been experiencing.
With certain foods. The doctor will test your skin with liquid extracts of different foods. They will be looking for any hives or rashes. You may also have a blood test to see if you carry any IGE antibodies to specific foods. To pin down problem foods, it's a good idea to keep a food diary detailing what you eat, when you eat it, and any symptoms that appear around that time. Elimination diets can also help diagnose a food allergy. These work by removing a suspected food from the diet to see if allergy symptoms clear up. If the symptoms do go away, the.
Next step would be to do a food challenge. This is done in a doctor's office. You will be given a sample of the food you may be allergic to. If there is a reaction with the suspected food, then the allergy is confirmed. Unfortunately, there is no cure for food allergies right now. And, while some kids may outgrow a food allergy, others who don't must carefully navigate menus and grocery aisles their whole lives. The good news is there are many ways for those with food allergies to eat well.
And incorporate all the nutrition they need in their diets. SHARON If you or someone in your family has a food allergy, it's something you need to think about at every meal. But, it doesn't mean the party's over. So, let's forget what mom says and start with dessert. I love ice cream, which is a dairy product. And, dairy products are some of the most common allergens. But, there are many milk options that don't come from animals, and they come in ice cream products, too! This soy ice cream is just one example. Another thing to keep.
In mind with dessert, sorbet is dairy free, but some sherbets are made with milk. And, if you really have a sweet tooth, try dark chocolate which is made without milk. For alternatives to animal milk, try soy, almond, and rice milks. It's also important to think about what nutrients you're losing when cutting out a certain food product. Fortunately, all of these milk alternatives have nearly the same amount of calcium as dairy milk. Almond milk is a great source of calcium, and soy rice milks are almost always fortified.
With calcium. Soy milk also comes with an additional punch of protein. So, you'll have a healthy start to your day by using any of these milks with your favorite lowsugar cereal. If someone in your family has a peanut allergy, it's important to pay close attention to the labels of what's in your pantry. Some people can have a peanut allergy so sensitive that even foods processed in a plant that handles peanuts can trigger a reaction. For more obvious problem foods, like peanut butter, it's easier than ever today to find alternatives.
Like almond, cashew, and even sunflower butter if you're allergic to all tree nuts. People with seafood allergies may need to stay away from just shell fish, or in some cases all varieties of fish. If you're extra sensitive to fish, be careful when eating out because the kitchen will often prepare dishes on the same surfaces that were used for fish dishes. Also, vitamins sometimes contain fish oils and other fish products, so make sure to read those labels. When cooking at home, substitute a lean meat like chicken in a fish dish. You'll be losing hearthealthy fats called omega3's and vitaminB by cutting.
Fish out of your diet, so grab these vitamin supplements so you're not missing out. A wheat, or gluten, allergy means that grains like barley, wheat, and oats are offlimits. So, for a recipe that calls for these, substitute with rice or corn. You'll need to be careful with Gluten. It can be hidden in many foods like soy sauce and salad dressings. I checked the labels at the supermarket and picked out this salad dressing which is glutenfree. More products are beginning to advertise with a glutenfree label to make it easier for.
Picking Perfume Testing Perfume Skin Allergies
Tip number 12, skin care. One thing to remember when you're choosing perfumes and scent is that some people do have allergy reactions to some lotions, creams, and even sprayed scents. If your one of these people you shouldn't put anything scented on your skin if it gets irritated. This can go for everything that you put on your skin whether it's a lotion, a UV protectant, a deodorant and of course in this case a perfume. What's happening when you have an allergic reaction is your body is reacting to the chemicals that are the.
Matrix of the scent so it could be the alcohol it could be the lotion or it could be something else. The bottom line is that if you're having a reaction to it you should take a histamine blocker and discontinue use of the product.one way to test if you have an allergy or sensitivity to a perfume is to spray a little bit of the perfume on a part of your skin that is particularly sensitive. We recommend the under arm or the inside of the elbow. If in 10 minutes you have a redness or rash developing then of course you should discontinue.
The product and with anything else, as with anything else. If you experience any sort of difficulty breathing then chances are the perfume is not for you. You could be having an asthma reaction to the perfume. You may need to stay away from perfumes altogether if this is the case. Candles in particular and home fragrant systems are particularly bad for people who suffer from asthma and allergies. If your one of these people please do not use perfumes in your home or on your body in any form and choose unscented lotions,.
