Like Acne On The Arm?
I am 16 years old and have pimples on my upper arm and are now starting to grow on my forearms.
Hello Pradipta, Thank you for the question.
Acne is the most common skin problem and this condition can appear in any part of the body. Acne usually occurs due to several factors, such as hormonal problems during puberty, heredity, skin friction with objects, stress levels, use of cosmetics or skin care products, amping effects of drugs, and smoking habits. Acne begins with hair follicles which are blocked by a pile of dead skin cells and oil produced by the skin. This blockage causes inflammation of the hair follicles, causing the appearance of bumps / red spots. This condition can be followed by a bacterial infection which can then worsen the condition.
You can do the following recommendations to deal with acne that appears on the body:
keep your body clean by bathing regularly
take a bath immediately especially after excessive sweating or heavy activity
Avoid using tight clothing, use clothes that can absorb sweat easily
avoid the habit of solving acne
You can use ointments or gels that contain over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide. The content can help overcome inflammation and is an antiseptic (kills bacteria). Use this ointment / gel according to the instructions on the product packaging. However, you need to know that the use of this ointment or other acne medications cannot directly overcome acne; generally it takes a few weeks for the zit to be overcome properly. Do not hesitate to consult with a dermatologist further if this condition is very disturbing to you. Your doctor will carry out further examinations and treatments for you.
Hopefully this information helps you.
