Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When exposed to hot temperatures, including during the dry season, the activity of the sweat glands in the skin will increase. This condition is intended to cool the body temperature. In the end, sweat production will increase. Accumulation of sweat on the surface of the skin for a long time, can cause blockage of the ducts of the sweat glands themselves. As a result, the sweat glands become inflamed, and a pimple appears. In the medical world, inflammation of the sweat glands is called miliaria (prickly heat). These nodules can be itchy, fluid-filled, reddish, filled with pus, or even form a larger lump depending on the extent of the inflammation. This condition may be the cause of your complaint.
In addition, pimples on your facial skin can also appear due to contact dermatitis (inflammation due to contact with allergenic or irritating substances), acne (inflammation of the pilosebaceous glands), folliculitis (inflammation of the hair roots), fungal infections, milia (keratin deposition). on the skin), and so on.
In most cases, conditions like yours are harmless. But of course, this complaint can be very disturbing, especially because it appears in areas of the face that can be easily seen by others. Therefore, you should visit a dermatologist and venereal specialist so that further evaluation can be carried out. Treatment will likely be carried out by administering topical medications, such as creams or powders. However, if there is no improvement, the doctor may also suggest that you undergo further tests, such as allergy tests, to determine the appropriate treatment.
In the meantime, you should not touch the face with pimples excessively, especially with dirty hands. If your face is sweaty, immediately wipe with a clean tissue that does not contain perfume. Wash your face regularly with a cleansing soap that contains salicylic acid. Do not wear excessive make-up for a long period of time, especially before going to bed, to prevent clogging of the glands in your skin.
Hope it helps ya..
