all about children's sensitive skin

Having a child with excessively sensitive skin can bring a lot of challenges into your life. You have to watch what products come into the home because it can cause your child to get a rash. Ever since my daughter was born, I have had to be very cautious about the laundry detergents that I used in her clothes as well as my own. When people held her, I had to wrap her in a blanket to prevent perfume and their laundry detergent from causing her to break out in a rash. A dermatologist has helped us find several products that have helped over the years. Find out about sensitive skin here on my blog.

3 Tips For Recovering From Botox

While the results of botox are amazing, you will have to go through a recovery process before you get there. While this process isn't super long, it is very important that you are careful during the recovery process to ensure a quick and successful recovery. The medical professional who gives you your Botox injections will likely have several tips for you that will help the recovery process go as smooth as possible. This article will discuss 3 of these botox recovery tips in more detail:

Avoid NSAIDS

One thing that you want to do is avoid taking any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), such as ibuprofen or Advil, either before or after your treatment. These kinds of drugs can increase your risk of bruising, which is something that you want to avoid after getting botox. You can still take acetaminophen for your pain though, so you have no need to worry about your pain going untreated. 

Elevate Your Head 

It is important that you keep your head elevated the night of your Botox treatment. If you elevate your head, this stops all of the blood from rushing into it, thus reducing the amount of swelling and bruising that can occur. This will also likely make laying down and sleeping more comfortable for you because you won't have that constant pressure pulsing in your head in reaction to the blood rushing to the injection sites. 

Use A Cold Compress

Whenever an area where you received botox is bothering you, it is a good idea to stick ice on it for about 5-10 minutes, or until the area has become numbed by the cold. This is a great way to reduce pain and swelling without the use of medication. Just make sure that you don't leave the cold compress on for too long as this may cause you pain due to the extreme cold. 

Don't Do Anything Strenuous 

It is important that you give the injection sites time to heal before you go back to your regular level of functioning. This means that you should avoid things like aerobic exercise, cleaning your home, or even bending down and placing your head below your waist. This is just one more thing that can cause unnecessary blood flow in the area and can increase both your swelling and your bruising, and basically, delay your overall recovery time and make the process of recovery more painful for you.
