An Expert Guide on How to Treat Acne

Acne is a common skin condition that affects many people, especially teenagers and young adults. It can cause pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, and nodules on the face, chest, back, and shoulders. Acne can also affect your self-esteem, confidence, and mental health.

Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. This leads to inflammation and infection of the skin. Some factors that can trigger or worsen acne are hormones, stress, diet, medications, cosmetics, and genetics.

There are different types of acne depending on the severity and appearance of the lesions. They include:

Comedonal acne: This is the mildest form of acne that consists of small bumps or comedones on the skin. They can be open (blackheads) or closed (whiteheads).

Inflammatory acne: This is a more severe form of acne that involves red, swollen, and painful pimples or papules on the skin. They can also form pus-filled bumps or pustules.

Nodulocystic acne: This is the most severe form of acne that causes large, hard, and deep lumps or nodules under the skin. They can also form fluid-filled sacs or cysts that can rupture and cause scarring.

Acne can be prevented by following a good skincare routine that includes cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and exfoliating your skin regularly. You should also avoid touching, picking, or squeezing your pimples as this can spread bacteria and cause more inflammation and scarring. You should also use gentle and non-comedogenic products that do not clog your pores or irritate your skin.

Acne can be treated with various topical and oral medications that help reduce oil production, inflammation, and bacteria on your skin. However, these medications may have side effects such as dryness, peeling, redness, irritation, and sun sensitivity.
