The use of facemasks has become mandatory to hault the spread of coronavirus. It acts as a barrier and prevents entry of infected respiratory droplets from entering our body. However, masks can be harsh on the skin, causing problems like acne, rashes itching etc.
Mask related skin problems tend to occur due to prolonged use of mask or use of improper mask. Constant use of face mask causes accumulation of heat and moisture and causes constant friction on the delicate skin of the face leading to skin problems. Due to moisture retention, it also allows growth of bacteria leading to acne and skin infection.
Visit a Dermatologist in case you have any skin problems following mask use.
Avoid self-medication or home remedies for treatment of such problems.
