Black Spots On The Face Become Itchy?
In the morning I was a mother of 2 children aged 30 years. When I was pregnant my second child stopped using facial whitening cream. During pregnancy, black spots appeared around the left and right cheeks, nose and upper lip near the bottom of the nose. like a mustache. I’m currently using facial cream to remove it. Because I still give breast milk so I choose products that can be used by busui. I use melanox es. After 2 months of use, it doesn’t look like a big change but there is no skin on the face. so it’s smooth and bright but on the part that has spots it feels itchy. is that why? And how about the solution. thanks
Hello, Ekadira, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Blackish spots on the skin in medical terms are referred to as hyperpigmented spots. The cause of hyperpigmentation can be due to sun exposure, melasma (due to hormonal changes during pregnancy), or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (because there is a history of skin inflammation in the area).
To ascertain the cause of your condition, a direct examination must be performed by a doctor or dermatologist. The doctor will see the shape and spread of the black spots, and if necessary further examination will be done. The treatment depends greatly on the cause, severity of spotting, and your current condition (for example, breastfeeding).
There are several therapeutic options for removing black spots, for example with creams or ointments that contain vitamin C, kojik acid, moisturizers (which contain glyceryl, hyaluronic acid, and retinol), or with laser therapy or chemical peels. To eliminate black spots, it takes a few months so patience and patience are needed. In addition, it is still necessary to protect the skin from direct sun exposure, routinely use an SPF 30 sunscreen, and use a hat when outdoors.
If the use of cream / ointment contains itching, redness, swelling, heat, then stop using the drug and consult a doctor to get more appropriate therapy.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
