Hi ! Lately, on my face there are white patches that are itchy when I scratch it and it’s a bit rough and dry, a bit peeling off, lately I’ve been swimming a lot. Is it because of the chlorine in the pool or something ?? And how do you get rid of it ?? Thanks

Hi,


White patches on the face cause problems with appearance. The causes of white spots on the face are various, including:

pytiaris alba, white spots often appear on the face, the exact cause is not clear, often occurs due to sun exposure

tinea versicolor (tinea versicolor), due to the fungus malasezia furfur, symptoms of white patches appearing on the coolies, itching especially when sweating
Post-wound hypopigmentation, skin color that is paler than the surrounding area after inflammation or wound healing
vitiligo, is an autoimmune-induced skin disorder that causes white patches on the skin

To ensure that the complaints you are experiencing and the exact cause, you should check with a dermatologist directly to get the right treatment. If it is due to fungus, usually anti-fungal drugs and ointments will be given. If it is due to post-wound hypopigmentation, a special blemish mask may be given. Treatment depends on the exact cause.


Some of the things you can do:

avoid direct exposure to sunlight
use anti UV protective cream
don't be too long in the hot sun
keep skin clean, at least take a bath 2x a day
use cotton / sweat-absorbing clothing
dry off after sports activities
do not scratch the itchy area will cause cuts / blisters on the skin
use itching powder to reduce itching
