Acne, by its elusive nature can manifest in many forms. It can present as Papules, which are small pink bumps sensitive to the touch or pimples or pustules which are pus filled lesions. We also have Nodules which are actually lesions buried within the skin.The most painful form of this skin disorder however is what is known as Cysts which is responsible for scarring of the skin.   The picture painted above is that of despair, however good news is there are ways to cure the problem, but first you must understand what causes your acne.

Doctors are not very precise of the exact cause of this global skin disorder, but many people believe it to be due to several reasons. Clinically, it is postulated that during puberty in both sexes there is increase in production of hormones known as androgens. This development causes the sebaceous glands to enlarge, producing more sebum (oily substance lubricating skin).  Again, some hold the view hormonal changes due to pregnancy can cause this skin condition. Genetics also seem to play a role in the formation, which means you stand a chance of being infected if your parents had it or it runs in your family.

 Certain drugs, Lithium for example and cosmetics have been implicated and in fact are known to worsen the situation. As result of cosmetic use you stand the chance of scrubbing, dabbing and cleaning several times worsening your situation especially if it is your face. Foods generally are not known to cause this problem but food groups that provoke allergies should be avoided all together.

It may not be cherry news but fact is, acne is a global skin disorder affecting all age groups and races.Stastics put global figures at 75 - 85% between ages 12 - 24 battling this embarrassing and emotionally distressful skin disorder.  

.  For an effective and holistic solution to fix your acne , your first port of call is the Dermatologist - a doctor trained specifically in skincare.  This eliminates guess work since it has been proved that different treatment options exist for different skin types. This procedure is normally suggested for severe cases while seeing your physician should  be o.k. for mild to moderate cases.

 Depending upon severity of your problem, you should be discussing with your Doctor on issues such as how to minimize scarring as well as preventing psychological distress. He may also likely discuss other treatment options such as prescription drugs, over the counter or both.

The ultimate goal is to provide effective treatment and avoid re-occurrence. There is no doubt suffering from acne  is embarrassing, not to mention its unsightly tell tale signs like black heads, white heads and scars.

Depending on what option you choose to cure yourself of your acne, following tips will be helpful in reducing pain and stress normally associated with this skin disorder.

      (1)  Do not scrub too hard on affected areas

       (2) Wash twice daily with mild cleanser

       (3) Keep away from pore clogging makeup and cosmetics

      (4)  Avoid exposure to excessive sunlight and to wear mild sun screen if you must go out     

        These precautionary measures above when combined with what your Doctor will prescribe should help you cure your acne - mild and moderate. The word of caution is always: Consult your Doctor before any medication.
