Overcoming White Scars Like Tinea Versicolor With Natural Ingredients?
This is how when I was about 5 years old I had an accident and my cheek was scratched on the asphalt the wound bothers me now I am 17 years old, the wound has been a long time ago, can it disappear with natural ingredients
The scar that turns white may be post-inflammatory hypopigmentation. The existence of hypopigmentation can indeed interfere with the aesthetic appearance. Sometimes hypopigmentation conditions can get better on their own over time, they can also persist.
Hypopigmentation that persists for a long time, needs to be rethought about the cause. Apart from post-inflammatory hypopigmentation, white patches on facial skin can also be caused by several other things such as vitiligo, ptyriasis alba (a type of eczema), tinea versicolor. To be sure, it requires an examination directly by a doctor.
Given that the white marks have persisted for several years, I suggest that you consult directly with a dermatologist so that further examinations can be carried out if necessary with a skin scraping test and a wood lamp test to confirm the cause. Furthermore, the doctor can provide maximum further treatment according to the cause of the hypopigmentation you are experiencing.
Some treatments to treat post-inflammatory hypopigmentation include:
Microdermabrasion and dermabrasion
Pinch skin graft
Giving topical drugs, for example those containing AHA, retinoids, steroids
The type of treatment will be adjusted to your skin condition. If it is not caused by postinflamation hypopigmentation, the treatment given will also be adjusted according to the cause.
Some tips you can do:
Use sunscreen in the early evening
Use a face cream that contains a lightener
Avoid excessive sun exposure
Keep skin moist
Camouflage with cosmetics, for example using concealer and foundation
