Ointment Suitable For Pimples And Inflamed Zits?
I want to ask about pimples and slightly inflamed zits. What ointment is suitable for festering zits in pharmacies
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, please know in advance, how big your zits are. There are 2 types of inflamed and suppurating zits, pustular pimples and cystic pimples. Pustular acne is smaller (as big as a pinhead), occurs in the superficial layer of the skin (more outer), and is less painful when held. Cystic acne is larger than pustular acne, occurs in deeper layers of the skin, and feels more painful.
In addition, you also need to look back, how many zits do you have? If it really grows only 1 or 2 pustular type acne, then you can use anti-acne products that contain salicylic acid, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or sulfur. You can buy these products freely, but make sure you use them according to the rules written on the packaging. If the pimples fill your face or if what appears is a cystic type of acne, then the condition will not be treated with drugs that you can buy yourself but requires treatment from a dermatologist. Cystic type acne (even if it appears only 1 or 2) can potentially cause permanent acne scars if not treated properly.
Make sure you do not squeeze your zits because squeezing zits can cause acne scars that will be even more difficult to remove. Wash your face the right way, make sure you use sunscreen before you leave the house in the morning and afternoon, make sure you choose non-comedogenic cosmetics, and clean your cosmetics before you sleep. Make sure you eat foods that are well-nourished, include vegetables and fruit in your daily diet, drink enough fluids every day (2-3 liters a day).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
