How To Get Rid Of Burn-like Wounds On Dry Hands?
Hi I’m Liza 23 years, due to the widespread spread of corona virus, I often use handsanitizer, and now it causes my skin to dry and burn. Is there a way for this wound to disappear? Will it be a danger if I use the handsanitizer again? thank you 🙂
Hi Liza, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Hand sanitizers are used to kill bacteria and viruses on the hands because they contain antiseptic substances. An effective hand sanitizer is when it contains> 60% alcohol.
Too often using hand sanitize is not recommended. The alcohol content in the hand sanitizer causes irritation so the skin can itch, dry and feel hot. In addition, the use of too often can kill normal flora so that it can increase the occurrence of infection. This is what causes your complaints at this time.
For now things you can do are:
Avoid using hand sanitizer excessively, if necessary replace it with hand washing with soap.
Maintain skin moisture by using a moisturizer
Keep clean areas that are irritated
To reduce pain (if any), you can use Paracetamol to relieve it.
Eat healthy and nutritious for healing irritating wounds.
So, hopefully useful.
