The Skin Under The Eyes Streaks After Recovering From The Wound?
, why the skin can be striped due to loss of color pigment after a wound? My friend has a problem like that, he just got hit by a blister so in the area around the bottom of the eye, then after the wound healed his skin lost pigment so in the area of the wound, that’s why? Is it dangerous? What’s the solution?
Hello Widya! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
When our skin is injured, there will be a healing process to restore skin function as before. Depending on the type of injury that occurred and the damage to the skin what caused it, the wound that has healed can leave a scar. Scars that appear whiter than the surrounding skin can be caused by a decrease in the amount of melanin when the wound occurs and wound healing. Melanin is a substance that plays a role in giving skin color. When melanin in the skin area is reduced, the skin of the part will look whiter than the surrounding skin. Scars like this often occur and are not dangerous. Only, maybe it can interfere with appearance. There are several therapeutic options to deal with this problem. Your friend can consult a dermatologist for further examination. The doctor will discuss to determine what actions should be done. If your friend feels undisturbed by the scar, your friend does not need to be treated. If not treated, the scar can settle or disappear by itself for a long time, around several years.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
