How To Deal With Itching On The Face Every Time You Sweat On The Face?
Afternoon .. I want to ask about the itching on my face that I feel, every time I sweat on my face, I will feel itchy … that’s why doc?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Moist skin conditions due to sweating can indeed trigger itching. Not only on the face, skin on other parts of the body can experience similar complaints. In addition, high humidity on the skin is also an excellent medium for infectious microorganisms to reproduce fertile, for example, fungi, bacteria, or others. This infection can trigger inflammation of the skin which eventually triggers itching.
In addition, itching on the skin can also arise due to other factors, for example xerosis (dry skin), contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, neurodermatitis, hormonal changes (for example during pregnancy), to disturbances in internal organs, for example the liver, bile ducts, kidneys, etc.
If it is clear that the trigger for the itching is a sweaty facial skin condition, then you can deal with the complaint by doing the following:
Avoid staying in the hot sun or in a hot and sultry environment for too long
Use a tissue to wipe the sweat dripping on the facial skin
Use a fan or air conditioner to cool the skin
Avoid using too thick cosmetics which lead to excessive sweat production
Also wear clothes that are comfortable and absorb sweat
Take a shower right away if you sweat a lot
Wash your face regularly every shower and finish cleaning cosmetics
Reduce consumption of foods or drinks that are too hot and spicy so that sweat production does not increase excessively
Do not scratch itchy skin excessively
If the complaint does not improve with the steps above within 3 days, you should check with a doctor or dermatologist directly so that you will be given appropriate treatment.
I hope this helps.
