Before anyone else asks me if I have Herpes let me make this clear.I have a scar on my upper lip on the right side and my classmates keep asking me what happened over the weekend.
Nothing happened😡(Not that all of us haven’t had Herpes Simplex 1 at some point, maybe a stranger kissed you when you were a baby and you got a cold sore. I digress)
I burnt my skin with garlic.A few days ago. I had a pimple there and I thought it would go away with a little raw garlic, you know one of the #1 remedies for acne on Google search, so I thought why not give it a try. I swear, I felt the burning sensation but I thought it was just the pus inside that was being sucked out by the garlic, little did I know that it was acute inflammation. Lesson learnt. Always listen to your skin. Okay, not always but mostly. If you feel like your skin is unusually dry, drink some water. Keep hydrated and mind your business. (Saw that latter part on a meme somewhere, again I digress)
If your skin reacts to sth, avoid putting that sth on the skin again. I’ll quote from one of my favorite books,
As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.
