Often, redness on the skin signals malfunctions in the body or that it’s time for you to reconsider your habits. We tell you about the most common reasons for their appearance and how to act in each situation.
When redness occurs, you can not always determine by eye the true causes that cause them. The main thing that any dermatologist will advise in this situation is not to self—medicate, because red spots on the skin may indicate the presence of various diseases. Together with the dermatologist “SM-Clinic” Olga Alekseevna Andrianova, we tell you what can be hidden behind ordinary redness and how best to act in each of the cases.
Rosacea and rosacea
Rosacea and rosacea manifest as spots on the skin caused by the expansion of small capillaries and overflow of blood vessels. As a result, multiple pink spots or vascular asterisks may appear on the skin of the face. The causes of these diseases can be both genetic and autoimmune.
The difference between rosacea and rosacea is a lighter course and a method of treatment. Rosacea is often accompanied by soreness, itching and rashes. To eliminate these diseases, it is necessary to consult a dermatologist for the appointment of drug therapy and phototherapy.
Prolonged exposure to the sun or in the cold
Pink spots after prolonged exposure to the sun or in the cold are a vascular reaction of capillaries. Aggressive exposure to temperatures violates the lipid barrier of the epidermis and contributes to an excessive vascular reaction.
To restore the surface layer and reduce pink spots will help funds with ceramides and vitamins of group B. It is also recommended to take prophylactically drugs with resveratrol, rutin, vitamins C and E course 2 times a year — after prior consultation with a specialist.
Reaction to cosmetics and home care
Red spots on the skin can also be the result of using creams with retinol, peptides and acid. Therefore, it is important that the selection of care products is handled by a dermatologist, who will first study your anamnesis and skin type.
Often, this disease manifests itself on the face and along the border of the scalp with pink spots. Unfortunately, the so-called “disease of kings” is not completely cured. It is no coincidence that the one who invents an effective way to eliminate it will be awarded the Nobel Prize.
However, this disease, which, in addition to rashes on the face, is accompanied by peeling and itching, can be transferred to a state of remission with the help of diet, special care products, hormonal ointments and light therapy.
This disease is associated with an allergic reaction to food, pet dust, plants. And most often, an allergic reaction from the body appears first in the form of a runny nose, lacrimation, sneezing and itching. And the reaction on the skin, in particular on the cheeks, forehead, and eye area, indicates a strong decrease in the body’s immunity.
Treatment of atopic dermatitis can be very long. In this case, it is important to prevent the addition of viral and bacterial microflora, so that complications do not arise.
Allergic reaction to taking medications
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (ibuprofen), analgesics (ketorol, baralgin) can give a short-term reaction in the form of red spots on the face and body.
Stress hyperemia of the face, erythrophobia
All these are the names of the disease of the psycho—emotional sphere, when a person has red spots with excitement, stress. Most often, a person knows about this peculiarity and tries to keep emotions under control. Sometimes it is recommended to take medications that have a calming effect.
Reaction to drug administration
A vivid example is the biorevitalization procedure. The drug novokutan contains vitamin A, and the drug mesovarton contains a whole complex of peptides and amino acids. The procedure also uses anesthesia with lidocaine preparations — emla, articaine. As a result, both the preparatory stage and the administration of the drug itself can cause a vascular reaction in the form of hyperemia and pink spots. Applying bepapten and prescribing antihistamines will help reduce this side effect.
