Use Of Cosmetics Or Facial Treatments During Leprosy Treatment?
If you are still in the MSA, you may not do facial treatments, such as using moisturizers, milk cleansers, masks and the like. but open the face bleach.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The bacteria Mycobacterium leprosy, which causes leprosy, infects the skin, peripheral nervous system and mucous membranes. Symptoms can vary, ranging from numbness, the appearance of a rash on the skin that is pale and thickened, wounds, thickening of the nerves, muscle weakness, damaged nose, to loss of hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, fingers, and so on.
There is no specific prohibition for leprosy sufferers from using cosmetics or facial skin care products as you mentioned. Using the right cosmetics or facial skin care products is actually good for maintaining skin moisture and making it look cleaner and brighter even though you are undergoing treatment.
However, if your current condition is as you conveyed in your previous thread, namely redness, pain, swelling, and heat on the face, especially the nose, then you should be more careful, by consulting the type of skin care products first. like what is right for you to use. It is feared that there are ingredients in the product you intend to use that contain irritants or have the potential to cause allergies to your skin. This of course can trigger inflammation in your skin so that the complaint gets worse.
So, you should consult directly with a skin specialist who treats you.
Hope this helps ..
