Red And Itchy Spots Around The Face When Using A Mask To Cover The Mouth And Nose?
Mmm, I want to ask the part of my chin and nose is red and there are some allergic spots, the position is right when covering the mask to keep my mouth and nose closed ??
Hello, good morning, Mother Khalil ...
Reddish skin accompanied by red and rasagatal spots on the face can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Allergic contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to allergic reactions due to exposure / skin contact with substances that cause allergies. Substances that can cause allergies to the skin for example are medicines that are on face creams, cosmetic ingredients, contact with certain plants, rubber, etc.
Irritant contact dermatitis, this disease is almost similar to irritant contact dermatitis, but the cause is contact with irritative substances, such as soap, shampoo, alcohol or perfume found in facial care products, etc.
Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema. Although this disease is often experienced by children, adults can also experience this disease. The cause of this condition is not known with certainty, but the factors that play mainly are genetic (hereditary) and unclean environment.
Rosacea. Rosacea is a disease whose cause is not yet known with certainty, but several conditions can trigger the occurrence of this skin disease, such as: stress, exposure to sun or wind, cold or hot air, consumption of spicy foods, hot drinks, and dairy products, etc. .
Lupus Lupus is an autoimmune disease, which is a disease that attacks a person's immune system. One symptom of this disease is a skin rash on the bridge of the nose and both cheeks known as a butterfly rash (butterfly rash) because of its shape that resembles a butterfly's wings.
From the explanation above, the cause of redness on the skin is not only due to allergies, ma'am, but many other possibilities. You need to know that abnormalities in the skin can not be diagnosed without direct examination, because every skin disease has its own characteristics that can only be distinguished through direct examination. So, it cannot be ascertained only through online consultations, ma'am. For that reason, we recommend that you consult a dermatologist to ascertain the cause of the complaint you are experiencing and how to handle it according to the diagnosis. The doctor will ask questions about complaints and examine your skin. Generally there is no need for additional tests for cases like yours, but if the examining doctor feels the need or if he suspects the possibility of other diagnoses, then he will propose additional examinations such as blood lab tests, allergy tests, etc.
While waiting to see a doctor, it is expected that you avoid first using cosmetics or facial care products that contain perfume and alcohol so as not to aggravate the redness that occurs. In addition, also avoid the use of any ointment or cream without doctor's instructions
That's all, hope it helps
