The Cause Of Facial Skin Looks Striped Like Phlegm?
Good night, I want to ask on my face looks striped, but unlike big phlegm, it has a rounder color that is whiter than my real skin, at first it is small, why is it getting bigger huh? I was once a consul and I was only encouraged to use sunblock but it had no effect at all. Why are the days widening? What is this skin disease? At first it was only a small dot on my left face but the bigger I grew the wider
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Stripes on the skin with a paler color is not always caused by fungal infections, including tinea versicolor. If you find this striped growing, it could be, this condition arises due to the following factors:
Vitiligo (damage to skin-producing pigment cells, melanocytes)
Pytiriasis alba (pale-colored rash, often associated with erosis or atopic dermatitis)
Contact dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation due to contact with irritative substances or due to allergies to substances in contact with the skin)
Leprosy (leprosy, Mycobacterium leprae infection)
Psoriasis (chronic skin inflammation that causes rapid and excessive skin regeneration)
Seborrheic dermatitis, and so on
You cannot be sure of the exact cause of your complaint without direct examination. Therefore, we suggest, before complaints become more widespread, try visiting your doctor or skin specialist directly at the nearest health facility. With direct evaluation, or supplemented with supporting tests, such as skin tissue smears, allergy tests, etc., doctors are often able to give you the best treatment.
At this time, you should never scratch or slough off the whitish area of the skin. Prioritize personal hygiene, including by diligently bathing and washing your face, using sunscreen and moisturizer before activity, not holding striped skin with dirty hands, and not exchanging towels, cosmetics, or other personal belongings with others. Finally, do not carelessly give treatment to striped skin without the knowledge of the doctor.
Hope this helps ...
