Scars On The Nasal Area Become Blackish?
Hello, I want to ask yesterday, I scratched the skin of the face of the nose area, then the skin peeled and sore when the afternoon turned dry, whether the scar will turn white or it will be black 🙏 Thanks, Hello 🙏
Thank you for the question.
The skin around the nose is peeling, feels sore, then dries, and is blackened, possibly indicating irritation (irritant contact dermatitis). This irritation often arises due to contact between the skin with certain irritative substances, for example certain soaps or cosmetics, certain mask or cream ingredients, and so on.
In addition to irritation, complaints on the skin of your nose may also occur due to allergic contact dermatitis, impetigo, tinea versicolor, shingles, xerosis, sun burn, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, miliaria, and many other possibilities.
This condition should be treated directly by seeing a doctor or dermatologist. That way, the doctor can provide further treatment, so that complaints do not spread, let alone leaving a disturbing mark. It cannot be ascertained whether this complaint will leave traces that remain black, or even white. Because this depends on the genetic predispositions of each person. What is clear, by seeing a doctor, your condition will certainly be treated properly so that it does not get worse.
In the meantime, here are our initial suggestions for you:
Do not scratch, rub, or exfoliate excess skin
Take a diligent bath, wash your face with mild cleansing soap that contains moisturizer
Also apply a moisturizer and sunscreen before activities, reduce the use of excessive cosmetics
Do not carelessly apply creams, ointments, or any substance on the nose skin that has complaints, without first consulting a doctor
First reduce outdoor activities, especially those polluting or directly in the sun
Drink more, eat vegetables and fruit, and do not sleep too late at night
Hope this helps ...
