The Facial Skin Is Peeling, Red, Itchy And Feels Sore?
It’s been 3 days, right, my face is peeling red itchy and a bit sore, now I went to the pharmacy and was given dexigen after I used it for 2 hours suddenly my skin was different between the one that was applied and the one that wasn’t this why? Then how do you return it?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Red, itchy, and sore facial skin can be caused by many factors, including irritation, allergies, or infections. Each of these possible conditions can have different ways of handling. Therefore, before deciding to use a drug, it is highly recommended that you first check your complaint with a doctor, especially a dermatologist, so you don't just buy drugs at a pharmacy without a doctor's examination beforehand.
The drug you are using contains the active substance desoximethasone. This drug belongs to the class of corticosteroids (anti-inflammatory drugs) which have very high potency. This drug can be used to relieve symptoms of inflammation of the skin, for example in people with atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, psoriasis, and so on. Please note that this drug is not included in the group of over-the-counter drugs that can be used carelessly.
The use of desoxymethasone without proper medical indications is very risky to cause side effects, including:
Allergies, can be characterized by skin that feels itchy, reddish, swollen, peeling, painful, etc. Skin irritation, characterized by itchy skin, heat, blisters Striae atrophy, telangiectasis (widening of blood vessels visible on the skin surface) widespread, for example acne, folliculitis Hypopigmentation (skin color turns paler than before), and so on. The complaints you are experiencing right now are most likely a symptom of hypopigmentation as part of the side effects of using the desoximethasone cream. Therefore, we recommend that you temporarily stop using it and have your complaint checked directly with a dermatologist to get the best treatment.
Currently, you should clean your facial skin with clean water and mild cleansing soap twice a day. Avoid peeling, excessive touch, or scratching the skin that is experiencing complaints. Do not forget to also protect your skin from excessive exposure to UV rays, pollution, and other irritants.
Hope it helps ..
