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 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.
Cat Health Medical Problems Cat Health Itchy Skin
Another common medical problem in cats is itchy skin. Cats will get itchy skin for a number of reasons, first of which is probably fleas. And you'll know that they have itchy skin because when you scratch them they help you. They have this little scratch reflex where their foot starts going like that. And sometimes if you scratch them over here, then they'll lift their tail or they'll really push against your fur. That's another sign that they're very itchy. Push against your fingers there. There's a little skin spot.
DIY Itchy Scalp Dandruff Treatment
Is your scalp itchy Do you have dandruff Ew. I'm kidding. Actually, dandruff is really common amongst all hair types. Even animals can get dandruff in their fur, you know, sometimes. So don't feel bad if you have it. So if you have dandruff I'm assuming you wanna get rid of it, right Well, sometimes it's not dandruff. Sometimes it's just product buildup. You need a clarifying shampoo to remove the buildup, but if it is dandruff, then it's usually a scalp disorder or a fungus that causes your skin to react and.
Itch and flake. And you need to get a medicated shampoo in order to treat it. If it's really serious, you might wanna see a dermatologist to see what you can do. If it's mild though, you might be able to treat it at home using Listerine guys. Weird. I thought so too, but actually Listerine, back in the day, was used to prevent infection during surgery, then it became a mouthwash. And now we're going to use the ingredients to fix our itchy scalps. Yay. Okay, this is all you need.
You wanna get a spray bottle. And you can find these at, I don't know, CVS, $0.10 cents. I'm just joking but, nothing's $0.10 cents anymore. I don't remember. They're really cheap. The little travel size things. Or you can just use like an empty bottle of something else but you need to put it in a spray bottle. Or a cotton swab. You can use those, too. It needs to be the yellow Listerine, okay It cannot be like the green one, or the purple one, or the pink one it needs to be the yellow one cuz that has the, you know, the,.
The right ingredients for this science stuff. Okay. Take your hair out and what you wanna do is with the cotton swab or the spray bottle, is you wanna start spraying it directly onto the scalp. Now, it's okay if it gets on your hair. However, protect the length of your hair, because it dos have alcohol in it, and you don't wanna dry out your hair, unless you just don't care, then just go ahead and pour the bottle over your scalp. Well, you really don't want to just, like, pour the bottle,.
Though, because then you're just going to waste all this Listerine. It's, there's no point. Just save your Listerine, put it in a spray bottle. And then massage it on your scalp. Leave it on your scalp for maybe 1015 minutes. Okay Now, when I tested this out, I didn't feel any burning or tingling or anything like that. However, if you do have scratches on your scalp just be aware it might sting, so you might not want to use it. But if you don't mind the stinging then just, you know,.
Know that it's not going to hurt you. Now while we're waiting for the 10 minutes, what's happening is the Listerine is. You know battling the yeast and the fungus and all you know, those bad things that cause the flaking and redness. So after ten, 15 minutes you can go ahead and wash and condition with your regular shampoo and conditioner, or you can use your medicated shampoo if you want to. And for this process what you want to do is repeat every single day for a week. Or until you see an improvement.
So I wash my hair. You know there is other things too that Listerine helps to treat like animal's problem like I mentioned earlier bald spots, toe fungus, if you have you know, toe fungus issues you can soak your toes. It's really just an awesome product actually. So afterwards, when you're done washing it out, just go ahead and comb your hair out and style as usual. And after a week or so you'll notice you have some soft, beautiful hair. No flakes, I mean depending on the level. I mean this might not work for you.
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,.
