Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 29-year-old female. I washed my face and did not apply moisturizer or any other thing. Then I placed the Biore pore strip on my nose. While removing it, it ripped my skin. It was red, burns bad, liquid comes out of it, and looks like a huge blister. I had this for about almost three weeks ago. I tired alcohol, which makes it burn. Also tried Neosporin, Vaseline, and aloe vera. I have consulted a doctor and he asked me to try Mometasone or Hydrocortisone or Triamcinolone or Naftin one at a time for about three to four days. It itches and burns. I did not find any improvement in healing. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your concern and understand your problem. You developed irritant contact dermatitis to Biore strip chemical. It is a localized disease confined to areas of exposure and may aggravate on subsequent exposure.

Investigations to be done

Patch test.

Probable diagnosis

Irritant contact dermatitis.

Treatment plan

1. I suggest Potassium permanganate compress. Take two crystals of Potassium permanganate and dissolve it in half bucket of tap water. Then take a clean gauge, immerse it in this solution and keep over the affected area for three to five minutes. Repeat it twice daily for five days. 2. After cleaning the area just apply Fluticasone and Fusidic acid combination twice daily for five days. 3. I also suggest tablet Levocetirizine once daily for five days. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.

Preventive measures

Never in future use Biore strip. Before using any new product first of all do patch test.

Regarding follow up

Revert back after five days to a dermatologist online.---> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/dermatologist
