Grade 1 and Grade 2 Acne: Everything there is know about them

About

Acne Vulgaris, commonly known as acne is the presence of blackheads, whiteheads, and other types of pimples on the skin.

Around 80% of people suffer from acne.

Acne Vulgaris:

  • Is treatable by a medical professional
  • May or may not require a medical diagnosis
  • May not require lab tests or imaging
  • Is common amongst teens and young adults between the ages of 11 and 30 years
  • Usually found on the face, chest, shoulders, and the back

Symptoms

Symptoms of Grade 1 acne:

  • Appearance of open comedones(skin coloured bumps) or blackheads
  • Absence of redness or bumps

Symptoms of Grade 2 acne:

  • Presence of whiteheads
  • Mild inflammation with swelling
  • Occasional papules and pustules

Treatment

Self-care: Grade 1 acne can be cured by self-care. For instance, using water-based products with salicylic acid helps unblocking pores. Also, steaming can help open up and clear the pores. Try not to scrub the acne-affected parts very harshly. Keeping the skin hydrated by consuming enough fluids can help treat this form of acne.

Medication: Grade 2 acne can require some medication. Topical treatments will help clean the skin and destroy the bacteria. Doctors may recommend Benzoyl Peroxide treatment. It helps reduce blackheads and pore blockages.
Specialists: For severe acne, it is recommended to consult a dermatologist at the earliest.
