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 Itchy Bumpy Red Skin Chicken Skin Or Keratosis Pilaris DermTV Epi 161

Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. If I told you that I'm going to help you understand and treat your keratosis pilaris, you'd say, What's he talking about But if I told you that's a fancy medical term for chicken skin, which is that rough, itchy skin that occurs on the top and outer parts of some people's arms and also on the front of their thighs, then it might ring a bell. It's particularly common in teenagers and young adults, and it itches but, more importantly,.

It looks really funny, because you have all these little white studded bumps on your skin with pink skin in between. It's not dangerous but It certainly looks funny and doesn't feel good. This is another situation where exfoliants to the rescue, because these hard little bumps represent overgrowths of dead cells on the top of the hair follicle. All you have to do is literally dissolve them away with a chemical exfoliant, whichever one you use for your face, you can use on your arms wherever you have your chicken skin, and use it twice a day, and it will result over a period of.

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,.

Is it Normal to Itch a Lot During Pregnancy

Is it normal to itch a lot during pregnancy It depends on where the scratching is. Scratching at the skin on the stomach as it stretches is normal. That's because the skin is stretching out of shape, often so bad you get stretch marks. Those are actually scars from when the skin stretches faster than the underlying area. Does scar removal cream get rid of it No, but moisturizer can reduce the odds of stretch marks occurring in the first place plus relieve the itching. Good to know I can use something, because it seems like doctors say you can't use.

Anything. But you may be able to use something for the allergy reactions. I can That is a relief! It is safe enough for toddlers, and if the itching is an allergic reaction, it is safe enough for you. I don't know if it is allergic. Then it will make it easier for you to sleep until the problem has passed. It is like everything itches. If your breasts itch, it may be the same reason the stomach itches the breasts are growing faster than the skin. The solution, lots of lotion, is the same.

That's hard to use on my palms, since it can make everything as smeared and messy as a toddler would. Itchy palms and soles of the feet are related to the high estrogen levels. That'll go away after you have the baby. I've heard that you'll be so miserable in pregnancy that you look forward to labor, but I never thought it had any credence until now. Regardless of the cause, you could use mild soap and cold showers to relieve the skin irritation. Stay out of hot, humid environments since your body can't regulate heat well.

Why Do Bug Bites Itch

Here's a vexing question asked at picnics and beach parties everywhere Why do bug bites itch And the answer is They don't. Bug bites don't itch at all, sometimes you don't even feel them, and that's pretty amazing because what goes on under your skin when a bug bites you is horrifying. Alright, some insects, like certain kinds of ants, are venomous so their bites can itch because their venom contains formic acid, which can irritate and blister the skin. But let's talk about Nematocera, the suborder of insects that includes black flies and mosquitoes.

These bugs have a long bendable proboscis that they stick into you to drink your blood. The proboscis is made up of six different mouth parts. First you got the mandibles which are hooked and the two maxillae which are serrated like steak knives. These sharp bits go as deep as they can to make an opening for the other two mouth parts to pass through the labrum and the hypopharynx. Those are both long, hollow, flexible tubes and they wriggle around inside of you like a worm while the bug probes around for blood vessels.

Once it finds one, blood gets sucked up through the labrum, and saliva is ejected down through the hypopharynx. That saliva is an anticoagulant it stops your blood from clotting inside the bug's proboscis so that it can keep drinking. It is also the main vector for diseases that are transmitted by mosquitoes like Malaria and West Nile Virus. And it has one other awesome property you are probably allergic to it, and when you're allergic to something your body produces histamine, the protein that triggers inflammation and widens your capillaries to allow white blood cells to pass through them so that they can fight foreign.

Invaders. So, it's the histamine that makes you swell up and itch when you get a bug bite, just like it makes your eyes and nose itch during pollen season. We're not even sure why histamine needs to make you itchy in order to do its job. It might just be your body's way of telling you that something's wrong with your skin. But I'm pretty sure we all wish it would stop. So thanks for asking, and thanks to all of our Subbable subscribers who make this and everything you see here on SciShow possible. If you have a quick question that you'd like.

How To Treat Hives Urticaria Treatments

Hi, my name is Molly. This tutorial covers how to treat hives. Hives are welts or wheals raised red bumps on the skin. And they're itchy. Yes, that does look like hives. The medical term for hives is urticaria. That's spelt URTICARIA. Urticaria. Which is Latin for the sting of a nettle. Just in case you needed to know. But most people call them hives. In most cases, hives are harmless but may sometimes be a symptom of something more serious. So if you've had any changes in your skin, it's always advisable to see your doctor.

In severe cases hives can obstruct breathing, which is a medical emergency. However, in most cases they are a harmless but bothersome condition. The hives appear and disappear quickly, usually within a few hours. And they itch a lot. Fortunately they leave no mark on the skin. Unless you scratch at them. So don't scratch. So how do you treat them In most cases the standard treatment is with antihistamines. Now, there are various types of antihistamines, some of which make you drowsy. These are the ones you want to take at night.

The new non sedating antihistamines may be taken during the day. You may also need to take more than one type of antihistamine to provide relief. Or take several in combination. There isn't one best antihistamine that works for everyone. Antihistamines can be purchased over the counter, although stronger ones need a prescription. For them to work, they need to be taken daily as their action is to prevent hives. Antihistamines don't cure hives, by the way, they only ease the symptoms. Use only the minimum dose to control your hives. Just enough for relief.

DermTV How to Treat Dry Skin and Itchy Skin in the Winter DermTV Episoded 144

Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. It's wintertime and, despite your best efforts to the contrary, your skin is getting dry and it's starting to itch. Let me tell you how to stop that itching. First, try a nonsedating antihistamine like Allegra, Hismanal or Zyrtec and, the reason I say nonsedating, is because we don't want to put you to sleep. Now antihistamines won't help the itching for everybody, but they're certainly worth a try. Use a cold water humidifier in your bedroom, especially at nighttime when you're sleeping. You spend several.

Hours there, and that's a perfect opportunity to restore the moisture in your skin. Use a cold water humidifier, not a hot water one, and make sure the chamber that holds the water is easily detachable. That way, you can clean it every day and avoid the buildup of undesirable germs. If you don't want to use a humidifier, and if you have a freestanding radiator, you can actually put a pot of water on the radiator. When the dry steam heat in the radiator comes on, it causes the water in the pot to evaporate,.

Again putting more moisture into the air. Just make sure you clean out that pot every day. But the most important thing for helping the itching of dry winter skin, of course, is moisturizers. Apply them as soon as you get done patting dry after your bath or shower to help lock in the moisture that you pick up in your bath or shower. Reapply them frequently and, if your skin is very itchy, get a moisturizer with menthol in it because menthol causes a cooling sensation it supersedes and stops the itching. An example is.

Sarna lotion, Sarna, and that's available without a prescription. Avoid wearing wool because wool fabrics have little fibers that poke out into the skin and really, really aggravate itching in people who have dry itchy skin. Lastly, if you're itching, don't scratch. Scratching feels good, stops the itching but, unfortunately, it begets more itching. If you are itching, you can just apply pressure to the area, as I am on my arm, and that pressure will stop the itching without causing more itching. But the most important thing to remember, if you're itching from dry winter.

Taking The Itch Out of Synthetic Hair Prepping for Box Braids

Bit. and get all of the extra alkaline residue off that I possibly can. You can see how dark that water is and that's just all of that alkaline residue. and covering that's on that braided hair that the manufacturer treats it with See, doesn't that look nasty All of that on that hair! Anyway, I'm letting the water out because I do this process two times. So here we go. We are going to start the second time. Another 12 cup vinegar. Jazz music We are adding the hair. I do rinse it a little.

Bit before adding it to the second session. Again, I'm rinsing through the hair. You can definitely see the difference. This is after I let it sit for another 10 minutes. You can definitely see the difference in that water. So we are letting it out now. Jazz music I'm just rinsing through it. I let the water run through it for a few minutes.
