Reduce acneiform eruptions

I’ve got spots that won’t go away... Is that normal? My skin is sometimes really itchy, what can I do?

When you undergo targeted therapy, an eruption in the form of spots or redness often appears. These lesions are generally found locally around the nose, on the scalp, in the center of the back and on the chest. They may be combined with itchiness or a painful burning sensation, or become infected.

I had all these little spots on my face and around my mouth, I was just like a teenager. My skin was dry, it tingled, and I had a constant urge to scratch. By using certain adapted creams, my skin became less sensitive and I started to feel soothed.

Our advice

  • Protect your skin from sunlight with an SPF 50+ mineral sunscreen.
  • Apply an appropriate hydrating cream once or twice a day. Try to use fragrance-free products.
  • Limit the spread of bacteria by using a copper/zinc-based cream or drying lotion.
  • Use suitable products for your everyday skin care routine.

Did you know?

  • Body scrubs are not recommended for very irritated skin.
  • Patients undergoing treatment should avoid exposure to sunlight, which can exacerbate the lesions.
  • If you pick away at the lesions, you increase the risk of scarring.
