Handling Of Swollen, Reddened, Tender, Dry And Watery Wounds?
Afternoon. I am 32 years old, my face is swollen, reddened, sore and can be tight because it is dry, this problem is because my mommy is wearing a face mask. I wish I was like a water wound, this is how you handle it. I beg for your help, thanks for your attention.
Hello Esther, Thank you for the question.
Your complaint can be caused by contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis is an inflammatory reaction on the skin caused by contact with a certain substance or material that causes allergies or irritation. Contact dermatitis can be divided into allergic contact dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis. Symptoms that commonly occur in patients with contact dermatitis are redness, swelling, dryness, peeling / cracking, feeling sore, itchy, and skin blisters. The severity of symptoms that appear depends on the cause and sensitivity of each individual's skin. Skin infections (for example bacterial infections or fungal infections) can also cause similar complaints but usually infections usually occur in certain skin locations, not comprehensive.
The most important thing you should do is avoid contact with the same mask. You can apply cold compresses on the face that is red, swollen, and tender to help relieve these symptoms. Avoid using facial cleansing soaps and other skin care products until your complaints are handled properly. You are also advised to avoid direct sun exposure.
Please consult with a dermatologist for further examination and treatment. The doctor will examine your facial skin to determine the cause and provide treatment according to the severity of symptoms.
I hope this helps.
