Close Shave Part 1 (Teacher: Michael)

The human skin can suffer from a number of diseases, although the face is relatively immune. Constant exposure to air and sun protect the face from a lot if infections that are due to organisms who love dark and damp areas, such as between the toes. But for men, any diseases on the face can affect shaving. The one face rash which is very common is acne. The complaint is far more common among youths than any other age group, especially young men.

Unless a male patient has a desire to a beard, I advise him to continue shaving but rather sketchily, skating around the worst spots. He should use a good, unscented soap, or a medicated one. Eczema of the face is much less common than acne. Again, on shaving, but avoid the worst areas as far as possible.

Fortunately, eczema rarely lasts for anything like as long as acne. Impetigo, another skin infection, seems to prefer the face to any other part of the body surface. Germs affect isolated areas of the face but not out wards from the main areas. Sufferers should medical advice since it is very often rapidly cleared up by the appropriate antibiotic drug.
