Hi Maya,


In medicine known as whiteheads or milia, bruntusan is a mild form of acne (acne). The cause of bruntusan is clogged pores of the skin, which results from a buildup of sebum, dead skin cells, and germs. The form of the bruntusan is in the form of small rashes the color of the skin or slightly red. The parts of the body that often appear pores are the forehead, nose, chin, chest, back, shoulders, and arms. Anyone can have a vaginal discharge, including babies. However, in adults this is more common due to hormonal factors, use of makeup, and the type of food consumed. Some things that can be done to prevent or reduce breakouts are:

Wash your face 2-3x a day or after using makeup. You can try a soap that contains a fine scrub to help clean dead skin cells.
Choosing makeup with non-comedogenic ingredients
Reduce consumption of oily foods
A choice of face creams that contain salicylic acid, which can exfoliate the skin layers. (If irritation occurs, you should first consult a skin specialist)
Drink at least 8 glasses of water / day

Prickly heat or also called miliaria is a skin disorder caused by blockage of the sweat glands. More often occurs when the weather is hot and sweating excessively. Often appears in infants and children, usually accompanied by complaints of itching. The form of prickly heat in the form of small rashes that can be reddish or like white spots / pus in them. Prickly heat often appears on the neck, face, chest, back. Prickly heat can be prevented and the complaints reduced by:

Bathing 2-3x a day
Use clothes with materials that are cool and absorb sweat. Avoid tight clothes. Change clothes regularly.
As much as possible avoid hot air
Using hydrocortisone ointment
Using a lotion containing calamine

Both bruntusan and prickly heat are usually mild, except for large areas, accompanied by itching that interferes with activity, inflammation due to bacterial infection, accompanied by fever. If the complaints do not decrease, you should still consult a dermatologist to get the appropriate therapy.


That is my explanation, hope it is useful.
