Treatment For Itchy, Dry And Reddish Faces Caused By Lime Masks?
, can hydrocortisone ointment be used on the face (oily and sensitive) that are dry, itchy, reddish due to using a lime mask? Thank you…
Complaints of dry, itchy, reddish skin after wearing lime masks may be related to skin irritation. Lime is irritating so that it is used too long, exposed to excessive sunlight, or if used on sensitive skin can cause irritation to the skin.
To reduce skin irritation after wearing a lime mask, you can do the following tips first:
Use a hypoallergenic cleanser and moisturizer that is moisturizing
Use a moisturizer that suits your skin type
Use soothing cream or soothing gel, for example aloe vera gel
Use sunscreen and avoid sun exposure
Cold compresses on the face
Avoid makeup until the skin improves
Avoid rubbing the face and avoid treatments that are exfoliating / removing dead skin cells until the skin condition improves
If with the tips above skin complaints do not improve, you should consult a dermatologist so that you can assess the condition of the skin first and then you can be given further treatment to the maximum to overcome the irritation. One of the irritation treatments is to use a cream that contains corticosteroids, generally the doctor will adjust the corticosteroid dose to be safe for the facial skin, for example by diluting it in a base cream according to the concentration needed.
The use of anti-irritant creams containing corticosteroids must be strictly in accordance with the doctor's recommendations and should not be used in the long run. You should consult with a dermatologist first regarding the use of corticosteroid creams such as hydrocortisone. Avoid using creams containing corticosteroids without the advice of doctors who have examined your skin directly.
Hope it helps you,
