A friend of mine has developed an "allergy" (not sure), but

Customer Question

Hi there, a friend of mine has developed an "allergy" (not sure), but basically he has big spots all over his body, literally all over his body, most of them are infected! He keeps "cleaning" all of them, with a twizzer, pulling every single day the skin around and on it then pouring alchool or almost burning them with a hairdryer!! Shouldn't he leave the skin that is growing alone? So the skin could at least heal? Thank you

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
