Gray Lump On The Cheek?
, I want to ask .. this morning when I looked in the cheek on the left (near the nose) there were bumps colored to mother, even though yesterday there were no lumps like that. when I touch it doesn’t hurt. The lump is not too bumpy, but the color is grayish. What do you think that is?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Gray lumps that are not painful in the cheek area may be caused by warts. Warts themselves occur due to skin infection by the HPV virus (Human Papillomavirus). This virus, can be transmitted easily from sufferers to others through skin contact, either directly, or indirectly (for example when exchanging towels or soap). These warts are prone to occur in children, adolescents, and also people who have problems with weak immune systems (for example, people with HIV or people who take long-term steroids).
Can also, gray bumps on your cheeks arise due to other causes, for example hyperkeratosis, hypertrophic scars, other skin infections (such as impetigo, molluscum contagiosum, folliculitis, acne), post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, contact dermatitis, benign or malignant scars in the skin, etc. .
We certainly cannot be certain of the exact cause of your complaint without conducting a direct inspection. Therefore, it is better for you to check your complaint to a doctor or a specialist in skin and genitals so that you can be given the best solution according to the cause of your complaint. For now, you can do the following trick first:
Do not hold excessive bumps, let alone squeeze or squeeze them forcefully
It also does not provide careless handling of lumps
Take a shower and wash your face clean using the right soap and suitable for your skin type
Not excessive use of cosmetics on the face
Use sunscreen and moisturizer before doing activities, especially activities carried out outdoors
Hope this helps ...
