The Face Suddenly Becomes White And Itchy Spots After Using Face Cream?
, I am 16 years old. I use a doctor’s cream package which has only been used for 3 weeks, my skin tends to break out and oily, when I use this cream it appears brunt acne in the T area, when the application on my face also feels itchy, but not red. when I asked the cream seller he said it was purging, and also the reaction of the product, and he said the use could not be mixed with other products, but I used another brand of facial soap, then my bruntusan slightly disappeared, but my cheeks suddenly itched and red, I I thought it was just an itch bitten by a mosquito, apparently after I woke up suddenly the red turned into white patches like phlegm, and it felt very itchy. Is this not compatible with the skincare that I use or is it allergic?
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of pimple acne accompanied by itching and redness, which then develops into white spots can be many possible triggers, including due to purging, allergies, irritation, fungal or bacterial infections, pityriasis alba, vitiligo, infections of other microorganisms, seborrheic dermatitis, mosquito bites or other insects , etc.
Unfortunately, you did not explain exactly what the ingredients of the creams and skin care products you used before. Therefore, it is also difficult for us to determine whether your current complaint arises purely because of purging, or whether there are other complications as we have mentioned above.
Our advice, you do not always give any drugs or skin care products to the complaints on your skin. Safer, you go back to the doctor or dermatologist who prescribes the cream. That way, can be evaluated, whether your complaint is still reasonable, or not and requires special management. As an initial treatment step, which need to be considered are:
Do not rub, squeeze, or forcefully exfoliate complaints on your skin
Diligent and clean shower
Use a moisturizer and sunblock, especially before outdoors activities
Drink water and eat more vegetables and fruit
Sleep early, don't stress
Keep yourself away from pollution, dust mites, and allergens as well as other irritants that have the risk of making complaints on your skin even more
Hope this helps ...
