I am a woman of 22 years, I want to ask, recently my neckline is red and afterwards it has become dark, even though I don’t feel itching or stinging and so on, how do I handle it?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The folds on the neck can indeed make the neck skin appear red or black streaks. This condition is generally normal due to excessive and continuous friction. An obese person, who has more folds in his neck, may show more conspicuous complaints. Direct sun exposure, poorly maintained skin hygiene, and inadequate skin care can also aggravate this condition.
As long as there is no itching, stinging, or other complaint on your neck skin, chances are you don't need to worry about your condition.
However, if you are in doubt, there is nothing wrong with having your complaint checked directly to a doctor or dermatologist. In some rare cases, it could also be a complaint as you experience occurs due to certain medical disorders, including:
Irritation, for example due to excessive scratching or friction Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with an irritating or allergenic substance) Skin infections, for example due to fungi, bacteria Atopic dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation due to atopic tendencies) Seborrheic dermatitis Xerosis, etc. apply so that the neck skin color can be more even:
Bathing diligently, clean your neck area well using antiseptic soap. Dry your body well (especially when you wash your neck) to minimize the residual dirt left in the neck folds Use a moisturizer to moisturize the skin (including neck skin) Use clothes that cover the neck area Maintain your weight so you are not too fat. Hope it helps.
