How To Get Rid Of Blackened Insect Bites?
Hello, I want to ask how to get rid of the blackened insect bites on the instep, how about that? Does your doctor have a pill or ointment recommendation maybe?
Black scars on the skin due to insect bites are referred to as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This blackness can also appear after a skin injury, acne, dermatitis, and other skin diseases. In some people, mosquito bites are easier to leave marks on the skin.
The former blackness will generally fade with time. There are various ways to avoid mosquito bites leaving blackish marks on the skin, namely:
No scratching on insect bite bumps to prevent deeper skin sores
Using sunscreen when outdoors activities / exposed to sunlight.
Use creams that contain vitamins C, E, and niacinamide. The use of materials that are whitening, bleachings such as retinoids, hydroquinone should be purchased which is within the safe percentage limit or can be consulted in advance directly with the doctor. Corticosteroid creams with a certain percentage and potential can also be used in the instep area to help disguise the blackness of insect bites. The use of these creams will not remove traces instantly, but can fade them after regular use in a certain period of time.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
