In addition, some acne products have an ingredient called retinoid and this has a few side effects such as skin irritation and UV sensitivity. Do take note of this and try to reduce exposure of your skin to the sun.
This type of acne severity would be difficult to treat using OTC products and other topical treatments, so the best treatment for this type of acne would be having it looked at by a dermatologist.
Should I Pop My Tigyawat or Not?
You should never pop your tigyawat by yourself because this would do more harm to your skin than good.
Tigyawat popping can lead to the following:
- Permanent acne scarring
- Painful acne/inflammation
- Spread of bacteria and infection
- More noticeable acne
There are a lot of reasons why dermatologists advise against tigyawat popping at home.
First off, there is a big possibility that some may do this with unsanitized hands. And this could cause the spread of bacteria and push the pimple’s contents inside the pores, causing inflammation or outbreaks.
Second, tigyawat popping could slow down the healing process of the body, so the pimples on your skin may stick around a lot longer than usual.
The best thing to do to a tigyawat is to leave it alone because it will disappear on its own over time.
If you would like to speed up the healing process of your tigyawat then you may apply a thin layer of benzoyl peroxide directly on it.
