Shoulder Skin Feels Sore After Using Perfume?
Afternoon doctor .. I’m a daughter .. This morning before the same time using perfume on the wrist u0026amp; on the shoulder. But around 9 o’clock until now the skin on the shoulders affected by perfume is red and sore. I rinse with water, it even hurts more. I used salicyl powder it subsided but it didn’t take long for me to sting badly from sweating. What’s the solution, doctor?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Skin that looks red and feels sore after contact with certain perfumes is most likely a sign of irritant contact dermatitis. This condition can occur if the perfume you use contains a composition that is indeed irritating, which triggers inflammation of the skin that comes in contact with it directly. The signs of inflammation in question can vary widely, including itching, burning, burning, redness, swelling, discharge, peeling, scaling, and so on. This condition is prone to spread to other body areas around the skin in contact with the perfume.
Also, redness and burning on the skin of your hands and shoulders may result from allergic contact dermatitis. Different from irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis occurs when your skin has excessive sensitivity in responding to contact with certain types of perfume, even though it does not contain any irritating ingredients. At first glance, the symptoms that arise from allergic contact dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis can be almost the same. Apart from contact dermatitis, your complaints may also arise due to other factors, for example insect bites, Herpes zoster, tinea manum, tinea corporis, tinea versicolor, erysipelas, impetigo, burns, seborrheic dermatitis, folliculitis, and so on.
Handling of your complaint can vary depending on the underlying cause. If it is true that your complaint occurs due to contact dermatitis, then giving anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-itching drugs, and so on can generally help relieve symptoms. However, if the trigger was different, then of course the handling could be different.
Our advice is that you first check your complaint with a doctor or dermatologist for further evaluation as well as treatment .. At home, you can also apply the following original solutions:
Compress the sore hands and back with warm water
Use clothes that are soft and comfortable to use
Be diligent in washing your hands and showering thoroughly
Stop using the perfume you previously used
Do not exfoliate the skin that is red and sore
Do not apply or sprinkle anything on the complaint on the skin without a doctor's advice
Hope it helps ..
