Causes Of Pale Skin After Using Antiseptic Plaster?
Good afternoon. R n r n My finger yesterday was scratched, until it formed a wound. So after I treated it with first aid, I wrapped it with hansaplast / wound dressing. But the next day when I opened it around 1pm my skin turned pale and wrinkled. The taste is also numb in that section. Why do you think and how do you return it? thank you
Pale skin after being covered with hansaplast is a normal thing to happen, especially if the hansaplast is exposed to water and is wet for a certain period of time.
When your hansaplast is wet and remains on the skin, it will be exposed to wet conditions for a long time (because the hansaplast will remain wet). This condition will cause the skin to become pale and wrinkled. This condition will disappear by itself after the hansaplast is opened for some time.
Some medical explanations that can be associated with this condition are =
If you get wet, the blood vessels will automatically narrow, causing the skin to turn pale, the sensation of touch is decreased (a bit thick) and wrinkles on the skin.
Sympathetic nervous disorders.
The volume or amount of blood flow decreases.
However, if this condition persists for more than 2 hours (paleness, wrinkles and numbness) after the hansaplast is opened then this condition should be checked by a neurologist as soon as possible. With a good physical examination and medical tests, the doctor can determine the cause of your complaint and provide appropriate treatment.
Glue the hansaplast not too firmly on the finger, replace the hansaplast immediately if it gets wet.
I hope this helps.
