Acne complications are common among adult women but, typically, when a new case of skin disorder develops, the complication may be attributed to pityriasis rosea. If you are struggling with redness, inflammation, and the development of abnormal spots on the face, you may find the complication is not acne but, instead, rosea complications.
For many women, especially those who bout skin disorders on an intermittent basis, there can be confusion as to what types of skin cleansing products and tools should be used. If you own a blackhead extractor, you may be inclined to use this product on most of your skin outbreaks but, when suffering from pityriasis rosea, this type of tool is not typically recommended.
When working with skin that needs to shrink enlarged pores and treatment for acne is needed, a dermatologist may recommend that you buy a blackhead extractor as part of your beauty routine. However, a blackhead extractor is not useful for all skin complications. Because pityriasis rosea is a rash, and not necessarily blackheads or acne, the use of an extractor on this type of outbreak may only further exacerbate the health complication.
Instead of using a blackhead extractor on your skin, when suffering from pityriasis rosea, utilize a gentle cleanser that will provide mild lubrication to the dryness of your skin and consider using natural sunlight as a way to mitigate the progression of the health complication. In many cases, the complications of pityriasis rosea will resolve spontaneously without the need for advanced skin care services.
If you find that your skin is worsening over time, the use of a blackhead extractor on the skin is never recommended and, instead, your dermatologist may need to provide other care. Keep in mind that, to keep your skin in ideal shape, always follow your doctor’s recommendations and only use the blackhead extractor under specific conditions. Using the tool on a dry skin condition, such as pityriasis rosea, may lead to infection and cause permanent scarring to the skin.
