Use Topical Medication For Acne Without A Doctor’s Prescription?
Afternoon, I caca 18 years old. Around my eyes, nose and chin, small spots appear. I feel disturbed by the small spots, so I don’t feel confident. I have read articles on how to get rid of small spots on Google, one of which uses a topical retinoid. Can I use retinoids without a doctor’s prescription? Then is that effective? Please tell me an effective way to make the spots on my face disappear within a week, thanks
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Freckles on the face can be symptoms of the following conditions, namely:
1. Acne or pimples
2. Milia (keratin obstruction in the skin layer)
3. Miliaria or prickly heat
4. Contact dermatitis or skin inflammation due to contact with substances that can cause allergies or irritation
Retinoids are drugs that contain substances related to vitamin A. These drugs are often used to treat problems on the skin of the face. This is because this drug can overcome acne, wrinkles, maintain skin elasticity and brighten back black spots. The benefit is because this drug can trigger the process of exfoliation of dead skin cells quickly and trigger the growth of new skin cells to quickly replace it.
You can try using a retinoid at night before going to bed. Do not use it during the day, because it can cause irritation due to exposure to sunlight. Start by giving a lapse of several days, for example retinoids are used once every three days. If the skin starts to redden and feel sore, stop using it for several days until the complaint improves. Take vitamin C too.
If the complaint has not improved after 2 weeks of use or even worsened, immediately consult a dermatologist. So that further examination and treatment can be done according to the cause, yes.
Thus hopefully useful.
