Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will answer your questions.
Peeling and sore facial skin can be caused by several things, namely:
Allergic contact dermatitis: inflammation of the skin due to an allergy to materials in contact with the skin.
Use of exfoliating creams / drugs (peels), for example retinoids, salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), glycolic acid
Burned by the sun (sunburn)
Dry skin type
Diseases that cause dry skin (ichtyosis)
Atopic dermatitis: congenital skin inflammation. Usually it often appears, without an obvious cause, and there are families who experience similar complaints. This complaint can be accompanied by other congenital diseases such as asthma, allergic rhinitis
In your case, was the drug you mentioned a face cream? If so, the complaint you are experiencing is likely caused by an allergy to the product you mentioned. You can do the test by applying the product to the skin behind your ear, if you experience stinging, redness, and peeling too, it is likely that your complaint is due to an allergy to the drug you mentioned.
You also need to look at the content of the cream, does it contain the exfoliating ingredients (peels) as mentioned above? If so, the peeling effect could be due to the peeling effect of the drug.
However, it is also possible that the complaints you experience are caused by other causes mentioned above.
For that, you should ascertain the cause of your complaint, by consulting further with a dermatologist to be examined directly. The doctor will delve further into the course of your disease and will examine your skin type. Next, the doctor will perform a direct and detailed skin examination using the loop to find out the exact condition of your complaint. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for you according to the underlying condition.
Things you can do at home to reduce your symptoms and prevent your condition from worsening are:
Avoid exfoliating your skin manually as this can cause sores and lead to infection
Choose a face wash that suits your skin type, non-irritating, hypoallergenic, without coloring, and without fragrance
Use sunscreen every time you are exposed to the sun
Use a moisturizer on your skin, make sure it doesn't cause allergies to you by first trying it on the area behind the ear
Drink lots of water, about 2 liters per day
Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables to meet the needs of vitamins and minerals, which are good for your skin
So many explanations from me, hopefully helpful and useful.
