How To Treat Bed Bug Bites?
Hello, I have felt itchy for a month on my hands, feet, and back of my body due to bed bug bites. I have cleaned the mattress, pillows, bolsters every day. As a result of bedbug bites, my hands covered with black spots that accumulate a lot because of itching which is quite severe, I scratched it into a duck. What medicine is suitable for removing the scar?
Black stains from insect bites are referred to as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation results from the buildup of melanin due to inflammation in the area before.
Hyperpigmentation can be treated with whitening creams. The use of these creams usually has to be long term and the results they produce are usually not very meaningful. The use of creams that contain potent corticosteroids is also recommended by doctors in some cases. Other measures such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion can also help disguise the dark spots. Eliminating hyperpigmentation that is fast and effective is by laser techniques. You can consult with a dermatologist to determine the right therapy to reduce the hyperpigmentation.
Some steps that can be taken to disguise hyperpigmentation include:
Use sunscreen, you can use long pants or sunscreen to provide additional protection.
Perform scrubbing on the skin
Use creams that contain vitamin C, kojik acid
Hyperpigmentation due to insect bites is not dangerous, but quite disturbing in terms of appearance. Consult a doctor can also be done to get the right treatment. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
