The Face Is Sore And Has Spots Like A Wound?
hello, I am 16 years old, so lately my face feels sore gt like after being clawed, now after that it even ‘smears’ like a wound, even though I don’t use new skincare products. this was originally just a single spot, it appeared about 1.5 weeks ago, the condition of my face was wearing makeup and indeed because my activity was on or off so I wasn’t touchup or clean “gt, well after that 1 appeared, new spots appeared ” another. why is this?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Spots that feel pain in the face can be caused by several possibilities, including:
pimples / zits
irritation or allergy to the skin due to the use of skin care products or cosmetics that are not suitable, or even the use of certain herbal ingredients that irritate the skin (for example using onions on the face area)
bacterial skin infections (impetigo)
viral infections of the skin (it can be herpes simplex which usually appears around the mouth and lips, it can also be herpes zoster which is usually dermatomal lesions - accumulated in one particular innervation area)
fungal infections of the face
dermatitis (can be of various types, can seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, etc.)
It is better to check with a dermatologist if the lesions on your face are painful and look more widespread. For the time being, reduce the use of cosmetics, clean your face with mild soap (avoid using antiseptic soap or soap containing scrubs), apply a special moisturizer on the face after washing your face, avoid direct sun exposure on the face and use sunscreen when you leave the house in the morning and afternoon. If you suspect that the lesions on your face are herpes (lesions look bouncy into small pieces of water and feel very sore / painful / hot), go to the doctor immediately and don't delay because giving medication as soon as possible after the appearance of the lesion will help speed healing disease.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
