Can You Use A Scar Removal Cream During Pregnancy?
Afternoon, I want to ask that I am pregnant 6 months ago, safe or not use a scar removal cream because during pregnancy often itching in the legs eventually leaves an impression.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In some people who are sensitive, itching on the skin can indeed leave scars that are annoying and difficult to remove. This condition can look more striking if you are used to scratching the itchy skin excessively. Often, scratching is not a dangerous thing. Although indeed, it seems that scratching on the skin can interfere with appearance so that it helps reduce self-confidence.
Although it is annoying, you should not carelessly use any cream or medicine to disguise the scratch marks, especially in your current condition who is pregnant. It is feared that some of the creams or drugs that are dangerous to you, or the fetus in your womb. Moreover, you do not mention in detail what you mean cream. So, we are not authorized to assess its safety. It is better if you don't consult your doctor or skin specialist first, you do not carelessly use creams or medicines, right?
So that the scratches on the skin fade, you can do the following steps:
Stop the habit of scratching or rubbing the skin excessively
Diligent and clean shower
Wear comfortable clothes, don't be too tight
Use a moisturizer to prevent dry skin --- dry skin due to hormonal changes and excessive skin stretching during pregnancy can trigger annoying itching
Before your activity, use sunscreen to protect yourself from UV exposure
Use turmeric mask, yam, or papaya on the former scratching so that the color is more faint
So that itching does not always recur and recur, avoid contact between the skin and substances that can trigger allergies or irritations on the skin, such as detergents, cold, dust, animal hair, or other chemicals
Hope this helps ...
