How To Get Rid Of White Skin Due To Burns?
afternoon, I want to ask last week my child was exposed to hot oil on his face and hands and now turned white like mushrooms how do I get rid of it
Post-exposed white scars of hot oil called hypopigmentation (precisely post-inflammatory hypopigmentation). Hypopigmentation results from damage to skin tissue and skin pigment. Hypopigmentation can improve over time, except in hypopigmentation because albino is generally permanent.
In children the doctor can make observations only. Whereas if you are more mature, if there is post-inflammatory hypopigmentation, your doctor can give topical medication, or take additional measures such as laser or chemical peels to help disguise hypopigmentation.
If the white marks are very large, you should consult directly with a dermatologist so that your child can be examined and the doctor can provide treatment if needed yes. While waiting to see the doctor, if the burn is completely healed, you can give sunscreen to your children and use a baby moisturizer or a child moisturizer.
Hope it helps you,
