What is acne?
Acne is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that causes spots and pimples, especially on the face, shoulder back, neck, chest, and upper arms.
It commonly occurs during puberty, when the sebaceous glands activate, but it can occur at any age. It is not dangerous but it can leave skin scars.
Why does acne breaks-out?
Human skin has pores that connect to oil glands under the skin. Follicles connect to the pores. Pimples grow when these follicles get blocked, and oil builds up under the skin.
Skin cells, sebum, and hair can clump together into a plug. This plug gets infected with bacteria, and swelling results. A pimple starts to develop when the plug begins to break down.
A range of factors triggers acne, but the main cause thought to be a rise in androgen level.
Signs and symptoms:
Main features are oily skin, papules and large pores resulting in scars. White heads, blackheads are often caused by acne. Sometimes nodules filled with pus or fluid can also be seen.
Wash your face no more than twice each day with warm water and mild soap made especially made for acne.
Avoid popping pimples, as this makes scarring likelier.
Avoid touching the face now and then.
Avoid excessive sun exposure, as it can increase production of adrenaline, which exacerbate acne.
Try to keep cool and dry in hot and humid climates, to prevent sweating.
When to see a doctor?
May it be a case of few pimples or more serious acne, consult to your primary health care provider about treatment. Treating acne early is the key to avoiding permanent scarring.
