 High temperature tests the epidemic! How to wear the mask for epidemic prevention and comfort?


With the coming of high temperature all over the country, wearing a mask poses a big problem for high temperature epidemic prevention. Wearing a mask is sultry and intolerable, but also prone to acne. If you dont wear a mask, you are afraid of the coming of virus. How to wear a mask in high temperature days.

Replace the mask in time after contact with sweat

As the standard of door protection, people have become accustomed to the existence of masks. However, with the increase of temperature and the enhancement of ultraviolet rays, the feeling of stuffy heat and skin problems caused by wearing masks are becoming more and more prominent. Zhang Miao, chief physician of Shenyang health service center, suggested: it is inevitable to sweat when wearing a mask in hot weather, and the protective effect of the middle layer of the mask will decrease after contacting with sweat, so the mask should be replaced in time.

Whether to wear masks should be judged according to different situations. Zhang Miao introduced: it is not necessary to wear it in an open place, a place with good ventilation or a large social distance; it should be worn in the face of patients with respiratory symptoms and when they go to the hospital; when they are not sure whether they should wear it or not, they can always wear a mask. In addition, some key groups, such as doctors, people who work in closed places, people who have close contact with the society, and high-risk groups such as patients with chronic diseases and the elderly, should wear masks in public places; those with respiratory symptoms should take the initiative to wear masks.

Do not press the upper metal strip of the mask too tight

Common problems encountered in wearing masks: the metal strip on the upper layer of the mask oppresses the skin; the moisture of the exhaled water increases to damage the skin barrier, so it contacts the cosmetics and the inner layer of the mask. Some people are not allergic or have no reaction under normal conditions, but when the humidity increases, the barrier is damaged, and foreign substances stimulate the skin to cause allergic reaction.

Zhang Miao suggested: in order to prevent these situations, the first is that the metal strip should not be pressed too tightly against the facial undulation, the second is to pad a sponge or a soft pad on the bridge of the nose, and the third is to choose a more gentle cosmetics. For the small pimples or vesicles that may appear, you can choose some drugs with therapeutic effect according to the situation, such as the relatively weak cortisone hormone ointment or anti-inflammatory ointment, and seek the help of a professional doctor if necessary.

The novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic prevention and control group deputy leader Luan Rongsheng said that the 3 characteristics should be worn: first, confined spaces such as subway and train must be worn; second, densely populated areas, hospitals, schools and other places need to be worn; third, third, Close contact, need to contact people for a long time, need to wear masks.

China has been fighting against the epidemic for half a year. Its time to review the knowledge about masks.

People can choose disposable surgical masks for daily protection. N95 mask has better disease prevention effect, but it is not suitable for wearing for a long time due to its poor air permeability and high respiratory resistance.

2. Wash your hands before wearing the mask. During wearing the mask, avoid touching the inner face of the mask with your hands, and try to reduce the pollution of the mask. The mask should distinguish the inside and outside, up and down. Disposable surgical mask, dark face outwards, light face inwards; one end with metal strip (nose clip) is above. You must wash your hands after using the mask and throwing it away.

4. No matter what type of respirator, the protection effect is limited. It needs to be replaced regularly. It is better to replace every 2-4 hours. If used too long, the filter efficiency will be reduced and the respiratory resistance will be increased because the large particles are blocked on the surface of the mask or the ultra-fine particles block the gap of the filter material of the mask.

Correct handling of masks after use

According to the Heilongjiang Provincial Center for Disease Control and prevention, the masks used by ordinary citizens are put into the hazardous waste bins without fever, cough and other symptoms.

Novel coronavirus (pneumonia) patients who have a fever, runny nose, sneezing and other symptoms (when they are in hospital) can be used to remove the used masks in the hospital for special treatment. (peoples health. Com, from Shenyang daily and Chengdu Daily)
