Acne – All you need to know

About

When dead skin cells and skin oil clog hair follicles, it leads to a chronic skin ailment known as acne vulgaris or acne.
Acne is the 8th most recurring disease globally, affecting 80-90% of teenagers worldwide. [2]

-- Treatable by a medical professional
-- Doesn’t require a medical diagnosis
-- Lab tests or imaging rarely required
-- Long-term: it takes years for pimples to subside
Increase in testosterone commonly begets acne, though the primary cause is often accredited to hereditary reasons.
Ages affected: Between 0 and 13: More often; Between 14 and 40: Predominant; Above 40 – Less often

Symptoms

Requires a medical diagnosis:
Symptoms vary from blackheads, to huge pus-filled pimples and red bumps. Hypertrophic scars and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) are common acne symptoms.

People may experience:
● Skin – whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules, cystic lesions, etc.
● Faintness, difficulty in breathing
● Swelling of the face, eyes, tongue or lips

Treatment

Self-care:
Patients are advised to use antibacterial soaps to cleanse themselves. Ointments having salicylic acid extract or clindamycin are proven to be helpful.

Medications:
Anti-inflammatory medicines, antiseptics, Vitamin A derivatives, and antibiotics are commonly prescribed by dermatologists to cure acne.
