White Patches Of Acne Scars On Facial Skin?
, good afternoon. My name is Brilliant, I am 19 years old. I want to ask, so in my life I very rarely have acne even though it was only one or two u0026 after the pimple disappeared only the red color remained, no signs of skin subsidence.rnrnBut on the other hand On the other hand, I often appear white like tinea versicolor which sometimes appears on small parts of my face with different sizes on average 1cm2, the texture is quite rough but not sore at all, it just seems to have thickened a little on that part of the skin. At first and until now I still think this is tinea versicolor.rnrnHowever, because of the frequency that often I pay more attention to it and after the whiteness disappears the surface of my skin becomes down, and after a while it becomes pockmarked. And it happened so often that I even felt like a shaman who if any whites appeared I could immediately predict that this would be a crater on my face. And it always turns out to be true.rnrnI have searched from many sources on the internet about tinea versicolor and pockmarks but I haven’t found a correlation so far. And I began to suspect that on this earth only I experienced it. Because I have never found an article that discusses the exact same problem as me. When it comes to genes, I see that none of my brothers and sisters are swayed.rnrnI do clean my face quite often, either using ovale or face wash. However, I think the frequency is still reasonable 2x a day. Overall, the pockmark appears in a place where there has never been a pimple and it always starts with tinea versicolor or whiteness.rnrnWhat I want to ask is, what are these whites? And if this is tinea versicolor, how come when it’s gone it’s pockmarked? What are the ways to prevent these whites from appearing, and how to deal with them when they appear when they disappear without leaving a crater on my face, thank you very much doctor 😀
Hello, Brilliant. Having problems with facial skin is very disturbing, especially if it causes scars on the face. White patches on facial skin can be caused by various things, including:
Post-inflammatory hypopigmentation/wounds on the skin. Hypopigmentation means a change in the color of the skin to white due to previous inflammation or injury. The skin will become white patches. Pityriasis versicolor or known as tinea versicolor. It is a disorder caused by a fungal infection. The sign begins with a whitish patch that feels itchy and scaly. When exposed to dry it feels more itchy. Vitiligo. Vitiligo occurs due to lack of skin color production or hypopigmentation. Characterized by appearing in the form of white spots that feel smooth on the surface of the skin. Vitiligo is also known as a skin pigment disorder. Leprosy or Morbus Hanse or leprosy. Is a skin disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium Leprae that attacks the skin accompanied by numbness (or not feeling anything) in the area with the white patches. This disease should be examined thoroughly. Pityriasis alba, which is white patches on the skin similar to tinea versicolor, but without scales, not itching, and no other complaints. These white patches appear on areas that are frequently exposed to the sun. Due to the many possible causes of white patches on your face, you should consult a dermatologist and genital specialist for an immediate examination so that the cause can be identified. Thus, the doctor can provide treatment according to the cause. Skin diseases will be easier to diagnose when seen directly because it is necessary to know the exact location, size and others. Here are suggestions for you:
Keep your body clean by bathing at least 2x a day or when sweating Change clothes when sweating Avoid touching your face or the area you are complaining about because it can cause an increase in complaints. Use a face shield or sunscreen when going out. Consume vegetables and fruits that are good for your skin. Drink lots of water which helps keep your skin moisturised. Hope it is useful
