Some Facts About Acne - Articles Surfing
Acne can be very frustrating for some people and there are many different reasons that you might have it. There are also many different ways to treat acne that might work for you.
Acne occurs in many people. It can come in the form of pimples that are black or white heads. This is when the openings of the follicles of the hair are clogged with oils and dirt.
Often times these pimples are filled with bacteria. Acne not only comes in these forms though.
There are other forms that acne can arise on the skin like papules that are small red bumps showing infection in the hair follicles, pustules that are tender red bumps with pus at the surface, nodules that are very large painful bumps under the skin, and in the form of cysts that are also painful too. Cysts fill with pus beneath the skin and are similar to boils that are full of infection.
Acne can be caused by numerous things. If you have an unhealthy diet and you eat a lot of greasy foods and foods considered to be inflammatory, then you could be causing your skin to break out into acne.
Acne is primarily caused from the over production of oils in the skin cells. Your skin might be over shedding dead skin cells and the hair follicles become irritated. And you might have an excessive build up of bacteria in your skin.
Any problems with acne can be repaired by taking proper care of your skin.
There are topical treatments that you can apply to your acne that can dry the oils in your skin and kill the bacteria that are spreading. These topicals also slow down the process of your skin cells dying as quickly as they are.
There are many things that you can find for acne over-the-counter and a dermatologist can prescribe something for you if the over-the-counter products don't work.
Some doctors might prescribe antibiotics for you to take to get rid of the infection and the bacteria. This is the only method for some people.
There are also other methods that are known to help clear up the skin like taking oral contraceptives and surgical procedures.
