When using hormone-containing products and replacing them with pure natural products, a few people will have symptoms such as blushing, fever, itching, and acne. This is called hormone hypersensitivity. Don’t mistakenly think that the newly purchased product is not good, and you switch back to the original hormone-containing product. Although the symptoms will be relieved immediately, it will continue to go further and further on the "hormonal" road~
Regular use of hormone products will form dependence on the skin, destroy the stratum corneum, stimulate the dermis, and the skin becomes fragile. Once the hormone is stopped, it will be very allergic.
So is there any way to alleviate the hormone face? The answer is YES, the following editor will tell you a few ways to crack the hormone face!
Cracking method 1: Stop topical hormones immediately and carry out "withdrawal therapy"
Hormonal drugs are like drugs that make people want to stop treatment. Therefore, treatment must be decisive and stop all hormone drugs or products containing hormones immediately. The cycle should last at least 4 weeks, especially the first 2 weeks of treatment is a critical period for withdrawal. After the hormone is stopped, the original skin disease recurs or even breaks out, and the skin lesions will be abnormally serious. During this period, the necessary oral administration should be given. As well as topical drugs to relieve the painful symptoms of patients, psychological counseling is particularly important.
The specific method is as follows:
①Stop topical hormonal drugs or suspicious products immediately, and do not use hormonal drugs orally.
②Fully communicate with doctors and patients: Explicitly tell the patient that the symptoms will rebound (ie obvious triad of dryness, itching, and burning) about three days after stopping the hormone, but the symptoms will get better in about 2 weeks.
③External moisturizing and repairing skin barrier skin care products.
④Cooperate with local cold compress or cold spray when burning and uncomfortable.
⑤ Oral drugs.
Cracking method two: anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic
This is mainly for the onset period, when there are obvious rashes and uncomfortable symptoms. Because the disease has the characteristics of recurrent attacks, the treatment is mainly carried out in stages. During the attack period, it is recommended to go to the dermatology clinic of the hospital for face-to-face diagnosis and treatment, and prescribe treatment drugs according to the specific situation.
When the face has redness, swelling, dryness, itching, and symptoms, it is necessary to take the oral medicine and the external application together. Oral administration is mainly anti-allergic drugs, plus anti-inflammatory drugs. You can choose desloratadine tablets and Minolta tablets. If the effect is not good, you can consider taking hydroxychloroquine orally. If accompanied by hair follicle inflammation, add doxycycline or minocycline. You can also go to the hospital for red and blue treatment. In addition, 10% calcium gluconate 2.0 g and vitamin C 3.0 g can be added by intravenous infusion of 5% glucose injection, and intravenous infusion can reduce vascular permeability. Chinese medicine also has a good effect on this. The main treatment principle is to clear away heat and toxins, clear away heat and cool blood. It is recommended to find an experienced Chinese medicine practitioner to write a prescription.
The main nursing measure during this period is to take cold and wet compresses. Conditional can use cold spray. If the skin is red, swollen and exuded, a cold wet compress is needed. Cold wet compress can be used in the refrigerator with normal saline and then wet the face several times a day. In general, the redness and swelling will subside within three to five days. It can be applied with tacrolimus ointment while applying cold compresses. Do not use tacrolimus external coating on damaged areas. After the skin symptoms subsided, the tacrolimus ointment began to decrease. Reduce the dosage once every 1 to 2 weeks, and reduce the dosage to once every other day and every two days, and gradually reduce the dosage until you can use it once a week to control your symptoms.
In addition, some experts have found in the clinic that tacrolimus is also dependent on long-term use, so it is recommended to take it off quickly after controlling the symptoms.
In the whole process, unless there is exudation, no moisturizer is used. The whole process needs to use skin moisturizer.
Cracking method three: proper skin care must be taken
Skin care must be done in both the attack period and the remission period. There are two main points: reducing irritation and moisturizing the skin.
To reduce irritation, one is to pay attention to sun protection, and the other is to reduce the number of face washes. Wash your face with warm water at around 30°, not cold water or hot water. Reduce all kinds of external skin irritation.
Moisturizing is an eternal topic. Apply moisturizer several times a day to keep the skin from drying out. If economic conditions permit, you can use cosmeceutical soothing moisturizing cream. And gradually transition into a normal moisturizer.
During this period, you can also find an experienced Chinese medicine doctor to prescribe Chinese medicine for physical conditioning. Or take some drugs that improve immunity, such as transfer factor capsules, lentinus polysaccharides, etc. By improving one's physical fitness, the purpose of avoiding recurrence can be achieved.
Cracking method 4: Chinese medicine treatment
Traditional Chinese medicine treatment has a good effect on hormone-dependent dermatitis. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the onset of this disease is caused by the accumulation of wind-heat toxin in the skin. The principle of treatment is mainly to clear away heat and detoxify. I often choose Wuwei Disinfecting Drink and Ermiao Powder for oral administration. The prescription consists of 15 grams of atractylodes rhizome, 15 grams of phellodendri, 15 grams of globulin, 10 grams of ditin, 15 grams of natural ground, 10 grams of paeonol, and 20 salvia. Gram, 15 grams of Xu Changqing, 10 grams of Platycodon, 10 grams of Chuanbei, 15 grams of honeysuckle, 15 grams of Campsis radicans, 6 grams of licorice. Decoct in water twice, take 400ml of juice, and take it half an hour after breakfast and dinner.
Traditional Chinese medicine cold compress Chinese medicine cold compress commonly used prescription 1. Purslane 50 grams, decocted into 500mL, take the supernatant liquid and apply cold on the face, 30min each time, 1 to 2 times/d, 7d as a course of treatment. 2, or 30 grams of honeysuckle, 10 grams of raw licorice, decoction and cold compress. 3. 50 mugwort leaves, add water and decoc to make 500ml, apply cold. Chinese medicine needs to be clarified after decoction. Use clear liquid instead of turbid.
Due to the abnormal skin sensitivity of this disease, any external medicine may cause irritation. It is recommended that the cold application of traditional Chinese medicine be as simple as possible. If a single medicine is effective, do not use more than two medicines.
Bloodletting therapy, choose to prick the back of the ear, the tip of the ear and the Yingxiang point to release 1-2ml of blood, which can effectively relieve inflammation in the acute phase.
Autohemotherapy is to extract blood from one's own body and inject it into Hegu and Zusanli points to improve immunity.
