Skin Rashes Appear After The Use Of Aroma Therapy?
Good afternoon HealthReplies.com, I want to consult about skin irritation problems, yesterday I was able to apply the scent of freshcare therapy to the back of the neck. how to overcome it, thanks?
Thank you for the question.
When judging from its contents, the aroma therapy oil you mentioned actually does not contain substances that are irritating to the skin. It's just that, in people who are sensitive, indeed contact between the skin with this oil can trigger allergic reactions. It is this allergic reaction that may cause a rash that feels hot and itchy on your neck. In the medical realm, this condition is called allergic contact dermatitis. The reason is the hypersensitivity of the immune system which considers certain substances that come into contact with the skin as dangerous, when in fact they are not.
It could also, other than due to allergic contact dermatitis, complaints on your neck arise due to other reasons, such as insect bites, impetigo, shingles, folliculitis, tinea corporis, cutaneous candidiasis, tinea versicolor, sun burn, drug eruption, seborrheic dermatitis, neurodermatitis, and so.
In order for your complaint to be resolved, first try the following steps:
No longer using the oil, unless it has been declared safe by a doctor
Do not scratch or rub excessively the rash that appears
Baths are more diligent and cleaner
Wear clothes that are clean, soft, and not tight
Do not carelessly exchange personal belongings with others
Apply calamine lotion to your itchy skin
If in 1-3 days you do not find any improvement to your complaints after undergoing the steps above, immediately check with your doctor or dermatologist for further treatment, ok?
I hope this helps.
