The Skin Near The Eye Area Is Red, Hot And Sore?
Hello, Just yesterday at the skin near my eye area … red, sore and hot it feels … Then until today it turns black … and still aches … That’s why and how to treat it? If it’s my assumption, maybe it’s because I was exposed to antiseptic in the area … Could that be the cause? Thank you very much …
Hello Nurhardiman, Thank you for the question.
Your complaint can be caused by contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis is inflammation of the skin caused by contact with certain substances or substances that can cause irritation or allergies to your skin. Contact dermatitis can be divided into two types namely irritant contact dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis. If you have sensitive skin, exposure to an ingredient in your skin, such as the content in the antiseptic liquid you are using, can cause irritation to your skin. In addition to contact dermatitis, this complaint can also be caused by burns (for example due to excessive sun exposure), eczema, erysipelas, and others.
You can do the following suggestions:
avoid using soap that has a strong scent for a while, wipe your face with clean water
Avoid using other skin care products
avoid direct sunlight
You can apply a cream containing aloe vera to help ease your complaints
If more than 3 days your complaint does not improve or even get worse, you should immediately consult a dermatologist for further examination and treatment.
I hope this helps.
