When it itches and tingles

Recommended Posts

When your face is really itchy, sort of tingling, more itchy, what does this mean?

I'm pretty sure it usually comes from the area where spots are..

yeahh, what does it mean?

The itching and tingling sensations are due to inflammation (increased blood flow). With greater blood flow to the site of infection, there are greater numbers of white blood cells to start fighting bacteria. Don't scratch. I did and it makes it worse. Think about it, when you get bitten by a mosquito, foreign material is injected into the body i.e. the body is infected. You scratch, it gets worse. Hope this has cleared your question up!! I thought the same thing for ages :)

That's happening to me, too. It's so hard not to touch or scratch! I am trying to stay busy and not think about it.

My cysts used to itch, burn, and tingle. Other people (sitting close to me) commented on the heat coming off my face all the time. I couldn't sleep some nights because of it.

It never signified anything special to me. It was just how my acne was.
