View Full Version : butterfly rash aggravated by skin care mask?

Has anyone had the butterfly rash appear after using any skin care product or clay mask?

I used a clay mask and when I removed it there was the butterfaly rash, with a burning sensation. Could the rash flare because of this?

thanks, sandfeet

Hi Sandfeet;
Some skin care products can aggravate your skin and cause the rash to appear or worsen. Skin masks are essentially harsh as they are intended to draw dirt and impurities out of your skin. Your skin is alread sensitive due to the illness and the mask may, indeed, be aggravating your skin even more.
Try to avoid preparations or medications you know will make your skin condition worse. These might include hair dyes, skin creams, certain drugs that can make you more sensitive to the sun (for example, tetracyclines or diuretics), and things you are allergic to.
It?s okay to wear makeup, but try hypoallergenic brands. A brand that also includes UV protection would be good to use.
We have to be extra gentle with our face, especially if we have the rash. This means being very careful about the products that we use.

Take Care Of Yourself
