How To Get Rid Of Scars From Bed Bug Bites?
Good evening,rI want to ask, how do you get rid of scars from bed bug bites?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Insect bites can leave marks on the skin in the form of changes in skin color ranging from reddish skin to darker (brown) skin changes. Bite scars in the form of reddish skin are generally treated with topical steroids. However, bite marks in the form of darker skin changes (hyperpigmentation) will be more difficult and will take longer to fade. Hyperpigmentation of the skin is usually caused by a local inflammatory reaction due to the insect bite itself and from scratching. Usually you can use skin products that contain vitamin C, vitamin E, kojic acid, arbutin, glycolic acid, tretinoin, or azelaic acid, however, the use of products with these ingredients must be in accordance with the advice of a doctor. Please consult with a dermatologist first so that the doctor can examine the bite marks you are complaining about and then determine the appropriate treatment. For the time being, avoid direct sunlight. Use sunscreen if you want to go outside. If you have another bug bite in the future, avoid scratching the itchy area and use salicylic powder or calamine lotion to relieve itching.
I hope this helps.
