Do you want to give medicine if you have a cold?
Hello Jesslyn, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Acne or in the medical world known as acne vulgaris is inflammation that occurs in the skin due to a blockage in the pores of the face or hair follicles due to dirt, or excess oil. Acne itself is not a dangerous skin disease, but sometimes causes problems in appearance and reduce one's confidence.
Symptoms of blackheads themselves are diverse, there are many formations in acne itself, namely blackheads / white patches appear on the surface of the skin, pustules are small lumps at the end with pus, papules are reddish small bumps, large lump cysts where the pockets are filled with pus. Other complaints are usually in the form of pain, and redness on the face. Acne itself can be mild to severe depending on the amount.
Treatment can be done based on the cause itself. Some common causes are:
Excessive sebum production. Sebum is a substance produced by the oil glands to prevent dry skin. Blockage of hair follicles. Bacterial infection. Hormone. Excessive androgen hormone activity can cause acne, usually women tend to stress more often. The use of certain cosmetics. Repeated friction on the skin. Treatment that is commonly done is by giving antibiotic ointments, retinoids, hormone therapy. Non-medication treatment can be done with chemical peels, lasers, corticosteroid injections, and extraction of blackheads.
For that, if you feel disturbed by the presence of pimples on your face, you can consult directly the doctor for treatment problems that can be given, if acne continues to arise, you must undergo regular and periodic treatment.
Right now what you can do is:
Clean your face with facial cleansers that match your skin type. Avoid excessive use of cosmetics, and always clean cosmetics thoroughly. Avoid stress. Avoid squeezing pimples because they can cause new infections. Get enough rest. Avoid smoking, alcohol consumption because it can cause acne. That's all the answers I can give, thank you :)
