Facial Skin Problems That Are Difficult To Disappear?
, I want to ask. I’m a 19 year old teenage boy, when I was in high school I had acne and I used 0.025 vitacid cream and my acne went away (then stopped). But there is something strange, my skin on the branch to the chin (almost near the cheeks), then the skin near the hair on the forehead is darker in color. So if you hold it it’s rough and if you look closely it looks like black dirt on the face. It’s like hyperpigmentation, I’ve tried everything. Starting from the routine of scrubbing yourself, using night cream, even going to the skin clinic, until one million has no effect at all (In the past, microdermabrasion took several times and had no effect at all). I’ve consulted a dermatologist and he said it’s just okay, it’ll go away. It’s been almost 4 years and it hasn’t gone away, I want my skin to be as clean as it used to be. I’m diligent in cleaning my face, I don’t smoke, and I rarely get sunlight. Please answer, I’ve been to a dermatologist and the answers were disappointing 🙁
Hi Danis, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Skin hyperpigmentation is a skin disorder characterized by the appearance of patches of darker color than the surrounding skin. In general, hyperpigmentation is not dangerous, only interferes with appearance and causes a feeling of insecurity. Possible hyperpigmentation experienced by you are:
Hyperpigmentation after inflammation, which may be caused by post-inflammatory acne you have Lentigo, brownish patches on the body that usually occur on skin that is often exposed to sunlight, namely the face and palms. Melasma, usually experienced by women aged 20-50 years, and usually suffered by dark skinned. and triggered by the effects of family planning, pregnancy, or sun exposure. If you have been to a dermatologist, and you are not satisfied, it would be better if you consult another dermatologist, usually the doctor will treat it with cream for 3 months , if the use of the cream does not fade, the doctor will offer several skin care measures, for example with laser or chemical peeling, and the doctor will also provide a skin moisturizer containing vitamin C which can help brighten the skin and disguise the brown spots.
Some things you can do at home
Get used to wearing sunscreen when going out of the house Avoid direct sunlight when you are on the move, use an umbrella or hat. Diligently clean the face regularly Avoid using any whitening cream that is sold freely in the market and has no clear content. Thank you, hopefully useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
