How To Get Rid Of White Spots On The Face That Do Not Go Away?
Hello, I am 13 years old. How do I get rid of the buras in advance huh? From 2019 there are already some that have not arrived yet, then there are new ones appearing, often being given an ointment that doesn’t work either🤣
Whitish on the skin (hypopigmentation) especially on facial skin can be caused by the following skin disorders:
Ptyriasis alba Often found in children and adolescents Suspected of exposure to sunlight or atopic eczema White patches or may be slightly reddish with thin scales on it Tinea versicolor / tinea versicolor Often in young adults Due to fungal infections White patches with thin scales on the top, can accompanied by itching Vitiligo Can occur at any age, but more clearly visible in adulthood Autoimmune disease is characterized by disruption of melanin production (pigment skin color) by melanocytes White patches with firm borders can appear on other body parts, not itching Leprosy Can occur at any age As a result of bacterial infection Mycobacterium leprae White patches with a characteristic sign of numbness / numbness in white patches, white patches do not sweat and are not covered with hair like other parts of the skin Diagnosis of the cause of white spots can be based on the history taking complaints, direct physical examination, and in some cases skin scraping examination required a know the inspection with special lights.
Handling certainly needs to be adjusted to the abnormalities found. Ptyriasis alba can generally disappear on its own without special treatment after several months or years. If the skin darkens due to sun exposure, ptyriasis alba may appear more clearly. Creams can be given to reduce the feeling of dryness of the skin or the process of inflammation when it is associated with atopic dermatitis / eczema. For tinea versicolor required additional anti-fungal cream. Vitiligo requires complex treatments, from administering drugs to light therapy. For leprosy (infectious) long-term treatment is needed using a combination of several types of drugs. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
