Sudden Sores On The Face?
Hello, I want to ask about the condition of my face, sometimes after waking up there is a knife cut, even though there is no sharp object in my room sometimes I also feel pain in the face when I wake up in the middle of the night, the condition of my face is sometimes dry after washing my face, what should i do to cure it
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Your face that is injured like a knife cut may occur because your face was scratched by something sharp while you were sleeping. Maybe while you were sleeping you accidentally scratched your face with your nails if there were no other sharp objects around your bed. Another possibility is that your face is scratched by certain jewelry that you use while sleeping (rings, necklaces, bracelets, etc.). You can prevent this from happening by regularly trimming your nails and removing your jewelry while you sleep.
Regarding your dry face, you can try to do the following things to overcome it:
Wash your face the right way:
Do not wash your face with hot water (just warm water)
Avoid using facial soaps that are too harsh (for example soaps that contain antiseptics)
Avoid using facial washes that contain scrubs regularly.
Only rub your face with your hands, don't rub it harshly
Gently dry your face with a dab of towel, don't rub it harshly
Don't wash your face too often if your skin is dry
Use a moisturizer immediately after washing your face, choose a facial moisturizer that is fragrance-free to avoid facial irritation
Avoid direct sunlight on the face, use sunscreen when outdoors
Be careful in choosing cosmetics or facial care products, choose the one that suits your skin type
Use a humidifier if you are in a lot of air-conditioned rooms
If indeed dry skin is very annoying and cannot be overcome by the methods above, consult a Dermatologist.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
