Can The Drug With The Content Of Imanitib Cause Spots On The Face?
afternoon … does the consumption of glivec drug affect the appearance of spots on the face?
Hello Lukita, Thank you for the question.
Glivec is a drug that contains imanitib which functions to treat leukemia and gastrointestinal stromal tumors. This drug works by inhibiting abnormal proteins that cause uncontrolled cell growth. This drug does not cause the appearance of spots on the face. Some of the side effects of using this drug are: headaches, dizziness, indigestion, vision problems, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and joint and muscle pain.
Spots on the face can be caused by heredity, aging, sun exposure, use of hormonal contraception, acne scars, pregnancy, or the use of cosmetics that contain mercury or salicylic acid for a long time. Blemishes on the face is actually not a dangerous condition but it is not uncommon to disturb one's appearance. Encourage your friend to consult with a dermatologist further if this condition is quite disturbing. The doctor will examine your friend's skin and then provide the right treatment for him. Meanwhile, your friend is recommended to avoid using cosmetics that have harmful contents and always use sunscreen when outdoors activities.
Hopefully this information helps you.
