Ways to
Prevent
and Treat
" Maskne "

" Maskne " is
the catchy
new term that,
unfortunately, has
become a part of our
common vernacular
in the current
COVID-19 world.

With routine wearing of facial coverings,
mask-induced acne or acne mechanica as well
as perioral dermatitis and rosacea have become
issues for many health care professionals and
our patients.
Masks trap heat and moisture from breathing,
speaking, and sweating, which creates a perfect
environment for bacteria, yeast, and demodex
mites to flourish. Friction, heat, and sweat cause
irritation and inflammation of the skin. This
combination flares or causes new outbreaks of
acne, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema,
and folliculitis.
Prevent maskne by washing your personal
cloth masks after every use and changing your
medical mask frequently, especially if you note
fibers breaking down and scratching your face.
