I wanted to know what the etiquette is for getting a massage with a skin condition. While my condition isn't contagious, my skin does have break outs and is not nice to look at. I don't want the masseuse to think I'm rude for getting a massage while I have a flare, but I cannot control this. Am I suppose to cancel? Warn them before that I have this condition? Pretend its not there?
How are you doing today?
I think this is a very considerate question to ask. Let me open it up to the Carenity community and see what they have done in a similar situation.

As someone who has struggled with acne in the past, I totally understand where you're coming from. While it's always good to disclose any medical conditions or concerns to your masseuse, I don't think you necessarily need to cancel your massage just because of a breakout. However, it's important to note that some massage oils can actually make breakouts worse, so you may want to opt for a spa treatment that specifically targets acne or try self-massage using a massage gun. Speaking of which, I recently discovered the best massage guns for runners on https://www.massage-gun-guide.com, and I've been obsessed with using them for my own sore muscles. Just remember, your skin condition doesn't define you, and it shouldn't stop you from enjoying a little bit of self-care.
Whether or not you can get a massage with a skin condition depends on the specific condition and its severity. It's important to communicate openly with both your massage therapist and your healthcare provider to ensure that it is safe and appropriate for you.In some cases, certain skin conditions may contraindicate massage therapy or require modifications to the treatment. For example, if you have an active skin infection, open wounds, severe burns, or a contagious skin condition, it's generally advised to avoid massage until the condition has improved or resolved.
I am a weekend warrior. I've been suffering from severe ACL injuries for the past few years. During my recovery process, I also developed some acne on my back due to improper care. Remember: Do not use massage oil before doing this. Massage, which is caused by clogged skin pores, allows the skin to breathe freely. Acne is only an emergency method, so you cannot use massage oil to aggravate the blockage. At the same time, proper massage and cleaning are necessary.
