Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 38-year-old female. Yesterday, I washed my face with a face wash and then used a scrub. Then, I applied homemade toner of honey, lemon, and vegetable oil followed by moisturizer and ice cube. At last, applied a face pack of turmeric, gram flour, and milk. Today my face is red in some areas. Why is it so? Can this scrub or gram flour pack cause wrinkles on the face?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I saw your written description. My personal advice is not to do so many things at a time. The error in your procedure was that once you are done with the scrub, then you should do a test patch over the back of your ear and wait for at least 15 minutes. If you feel any redness or burning then should stop using face packs or homemade products. Since you are suffering fromirritant contact dermatitis, stop all cosmetic products and facial packs for a few days. Now, you can apply 1% Hydrocortisone cream twice daily for five days and take a tablet Levocetirizine once daily for five days. Get a review after five days.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
