Can I Squeeze The Whitehead In The Corner Of The Eyelid?
Hello dokI have a whitehead in the corner of my eye, if viewed from a distance like a peel, but after being seen from the deck it is a whitehead. My question is allowed to push until it comes out white? The thing is it’s close to the eye area. And can the whitehead disappear without being pushed?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Whiteheads blackheads or whiteheads comedos are one type of acne that forms when there are dead skin cells, oil, hair follicles and bacteria that are trapped in the pores.
Everyone can experience this condition, regardless of age and gender. But the risk increases for those who:
Having oily skin
Exposed to chemicals such as cosmetic dyes
Rupture of hair follicles, for example due to the habit of squeezing zits
Smoking both actively and passively
Frequently consume certain products that contain milk, as well as high levels of sugar and fat
Regarding your question, medically speaking, actually squeezing pimples or blackheads, whatever their form, is not a recommended treatment. This can make the skin become irritated, have an infection, appear scarring and black spots that will ultimately damage the overall appearance of the skin and more severe. So even though it is not in the corner of the eye is actually not allowed.
Treatment recommended at home is to use benzoyl peroxide in the form of face wash soap or ointments that are sold freely on the market because they do not need a doctor's prescription. Of course it takes time to deal with this condition. It takes at least 2 months to see the effect. If it does not improve within that time, or you do not want to wait too long, you should immediately consult your dermatologist for further treatment, perhaps taking oral medication or receiving certain therapies such as corticosteroid injections, chemical peels, light therapy, extractions blackheads, and so on.
Meanwhile, avoid facial soap with a rough scrub, clean the rest of cosmetics before sleeping with soap and clean water, clean the blackheads with facial soap after the activity and before going to sleep, and use non-comedogenic cosmetics. So, hopefully answering your question.
