Causes And Ways To Deal With Dry, Red Cheek Skin With Itching After The Use Of Face Cream?
Morning doctor. I have complaints with the skin of the left and right cheeks under the eyes and near the nose. Her cheek skin feels itchy, then red is dry and feels a bit rough, in contrast to cheek skin which has no problem. I once used a mometasone furoate cream, with this cream in a week the skin on her cheeks improved. But after it stopped being used because the redness and itching had disappeared, a few weeks later it appeared again. What do you think is the cause and what should I do? Are there ingredients at home that can be used? Thank you doctor
Hello Fani, thank you for asking.
Dry skin, loses its protective layer. It causes the skin to become easily irritated and infected. The skin becomes easily red, peeling, sore or itchy. Water loss generally must be prevented by:
Drink 1.5-2 L water per day. Apply a moisturizer several times a day. Apply a material that retains water evaporation, such as hyaluronic acid. Apply sunscreen every 2-4 hours. Do not apply ingredients that can irritate the skin. Drought can occur due to lack of water consumption, non-routine use of moisturizer and sunscreen, smoking and alcohol consumption, exposure to cold air constantly, hormonal changes, the effects of certain drugs, or autoimmune conditions. Have you consulted a dermatologist? You should not apply an ointment containing steroids like the example above, without doctor's advice. The best way is to consult this problem with a dermatologist, remembering that these symptoms have recurred.
You can try to reduce the dryness with a mask of natural ingredients such as tomatoes, cucumbers, honey, eggs, avocados, or bananas. If when using a skin mask itchy or sore, immediately rinse thoroughly.
Thus my explanation, hopefully can help you. Regards.
