Acne is a condition of the appearance of reddish spots on the skin especially the face, neck, chest, and back. Acne can appear in small or large amounts, and can arise in a size large enough to resemble a pus-filled sac. Acne can arise due to blockages in hair follicles by oil / sebum and dead skin cells.
The condition of acne can be caused by several possible causes, including excessive production of sebum / oil, blockage of hair follicles that cause inflammation in related areas, bacterial colonization of Propionibacterium acnes, disruption of hormone regulation that can occur during puberty or pre-menstruation. Some risk factors that can affect are oily and unhygienic facial conditions, genetic history of prone to acne, excessive psychological distress.
It is advisable to consult a doctor or dermatologist regarding further examination and management. It is necessary to examine the condition of acne and inflammation experienced, so that appropriate management can be determined to treat your condition. Can be given several medications such as benzoyl peroxide, topical retinoids, topical antibiotics or in oral preparations (taken by mouth). However, the treatment modality you consume must be determined by the doctor at the time of consultation.
Avoid consuming or stopping your own treatment regimen without doctor's instructions, maintaining facial hygiene by washing your face adequately, avoiding using facial products first, using a mask when going out of the room, avoiding exposure to dust, smoke, or dirt on the face, avoid stress conditions, avoid consumption of oily foods.
