Blemishes The Cause Risks and Treatments

Acne is a condition causing carious blemishes to appear on the skin. It can affect people from age 10 through 40 and even older, although it is often called teenage acne, usually beginning at puberty and clearing up in the late teens or early twenties. The blemishes can show up as congested pores, whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, pustules, or cysts. Acne is caused when the oily substance produced in hair follicles becomes trapped in a hair follicle. Bacteria grow in that blocked follicle, causing it to become inflamed and become a pimple. Having an abundance of these blemishes on the bodies is referred to as acne.

Certain medications can cause acne, however, it usually occurs during adolescence when the rising level of hormones stimulates the sebaceous (oil) glands to produce more oil. Symptoms Pimples are usually concentrated on the face, but may appear on the back of the neck, the neck, the chest, the buttocks, or in the upper arms or thighs. An inflamed pimple may develop into a sore red lump with a white, pus-filled center.

As some pimples heal, others emerge. When they heal, they leave a purplish mark on the skin that usually fades eventually. Risks Severe acne can lead to scars, but does not have any risk to a person's general health. Acne can be distressing and embarrassing and it can have psychological or emotional effects. Self-consciousness can lead to lower self-esteem and general stress in a person's life, especially for a hormonally challenged teenager. Taking care of your acne from the beginning can eliminate many embarrassing moments.

Acne and Blemishes Treatment Care should be taken to keep the skin clean with natural skin care products, mild cleansers or exfoliants without scrubbing too vigorously. Washing too aggressively or more than twice a day can cause more harm than good. Picking or squeezing pimples causes scarring and spreading.

Non-prescription or over-the-counter creams can be effective for clear skin. Doctors can prescribe stronger topical ointments or small, daily doses of oral antibiotics such as tetracycline. There are other highly effective medications available, but they have side effects such as hair loss, joint pain, and eye soreness and have a very high risk of birth defects for pregnant women. Acne scarring can be minimized with techniques such as dermabrasion, soft tissue fillers, laser therapy, and chemical peeling.

With professional skin care, sufferers of both adult acne and teenage acne can have beautiful skin.
