Mouth Acne: A Painful Truth

Mouth Pimples are a pain. Most of the billions of people will agree to that. But why does it always have to be that painful?

Before anything else, here are the bare-bones of the lifecycle of the typical acne:

Well, acne is and always have been a major problem, particularly amongst teenagers, where a sudden increase in androgen occurs thus increasing the secretion of oil by the sebaceous glands which results to an oil plug that makes the pores clogged up in turn producing an inflammation that we all have come to know and hate: acne or more commonly known as pimples.

Now, acne’s favorite places to hang out are places you don’t want them to - the chest, neck and most of all, the most dreaded place: the face.

Now, having a pimple grow near the vicinity of your mouth is a different thing, because acnes located around the mouth are painful to tolerate.

But why the mouth of all places? Well, like any part of your body that has skin, the vicinity around the mouth is still covered by pores and these pores have sebaceous glands that secrete oil, so yes, it is still prone to acne.

The pain is caused when the sensitive acne is moved physically, thus triggering the many pain receptors around the area of the mouth. These pain receptors are located in the dermis and epidermis layers of the skin, hence the pain.

In treating mouth acne, there are things to consider first before a treatment can be done.

We must consider that any medicine, for example, Benzoyl Peroxide, which is intended only for external use is applied near the mouth, would risk the person in swallowing some of it.

This is true to almost all medications used for acne since most of the medications are topical that is only used externally.

So in these cases, a natural approach must be considered to reduce the amount of pain, more so, the acne buildup in the persons face so as not to risk poisoning the individual, the medication must be all natural. Since most of the medication available in the market are of a chemical nature, direct application whithin the vicinity of the mouth may predeispose the person to irritation or worse, poison him.

On a final note, mouth pimples shoud be cared for just like other type of pimple. However, we must be attentive of the places acne growth is noticeable because of the risks and possible repercussions the person may experience.
