5 skin problems you may need to get rid of:
Cold Sores- They contain a viral fluid that can get onto other parts of your body and create more sores. Cold sores are caused by herpes, which is known to be able to be transmitted simply through touch. They can be healed by themselves however you should avoid having physical contact with anyone until the sore is completely dormant, to avoid passing it on.
Ingrown Hairs- They happen when the hair’s shaft gets trapped under the surface of the skin, which then creates an itchy and inflamed red bump. While squeezing ingrown hairs will further irritate them, it can also result in scarring. You should wash the ingrown hair and the area around it with a natural and gentle cleanser that includes a light exfoliation in order to help the hair lightly break through skin’s surface.
Milia- They are small, un-poppable white bumps that may show up on your face. Milia are hard cysts that develop underneath the skin, and are not affected by any attempt to pop. These cysts stay in tact, so trying to use manual force on them only damages the skin around them. In order to get rid of them is having a dermatologist take it out with a heated tool that has been sterilized.
Keratosis Pilaris- It is the result of a buildup of keratin, which is the protein in hair, skin, and nails that protects it from toxins. When keratin builds up, it can create a plug that blocks the hair follicle. You should use a gentle exfoliant that includes salicylic or glycolic acid in order to decrease inflammation and treat Keratosis Pilaris at home.
Blackheads- They are pores that have become clogged with oil, similar to whiteheads, but blackheads have been exposed to the air, which in turn oxidizes the oil, changing its color to black. Squeezing them you will further force bacteria into the skin which can create a deeper infection. You should use a gentle exfoliating face wash to help clear blackheads blemishes. The exfoliants will work to bring the excess oil to the skin’s surface and therefore washing them away.
