Acne treatment is often done in a variety of ways, from natural methods to certain medications or medical procedures. This is not wrong. However, before trying various ways, it's a good idea to consult your acne type and skin type to a doctor or skin specialist. Because, improper acne treatment is very risky to cause your skin to become irritated, as you are experiencing today.
Most likely, the appearance of a very strong stinging, accompanied by skin that looks dry and then blackened due to irritation. This irritation can be triggered apart from using inappropriate acne treatment products, it could also be due to excessive sun exposure, rubbing the skin too often, or contact with other chemical substances that are irritating. Not only that, the skin can become swollen, peeling, and scaly because of it. This condition is more prone to be experienced by those with sensitive skin types, although it does not rule out that it also occurs in people with other skin types.
Apart from being irritated, it could also be the result of allergic reactions, for example if you have a tendency to hypersensitivity when you come into contact with certain substances contained in the skin care products you use.
As mentioned above, you should check your skin condition directly with a dermatologist so that further treatment can be done. Usually, the doctor will give you some topical treatment so that the symptoms of inflammation, whether due to irritation or allergies, in your skin subside. Or, the doctor will give you oral medication, or suggest that certain medical actions be taken, such as peeling, dermabrasion, lasers, and so on if the inflammation has subsided.
In the meantime, you should stop using the acne treatment products that you used before until it is declared safe by your doctor. Clean your skin 2 times a day using a mild cleansing soap that is suitable for your skin type. Avoid scrubbing or exfoliating too often the dry and blackened skin. Also protect your skin from sun exposure, for example by limiting going out during the day, using sunscreen, and a wide hat.
Hope this helps ..
