Hello Nurhazamie Amie, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
Besides being related to skin health, acne prone skin condition can indeed interfere with one's appearance and even cause a decrease in one's confidence. Acne itself can be experienced by everyone, but most often occurs in adolescence, where the levels of androgen hormones (which affect oil production) are high. In addition to the effects of hormones, acne is caused by the accumulation of dead skin cells and dirt in the skin pores and bacterial infections that cause acne.
There are many variations on the form of acne that can be experienced by someone, ranging from blackheads in the form of small spots on the skin, and when infected with acne bacteria become inflamed into reddish bumps that can contain pus, and if inflammation occurs in the deeper layers of the skin, acne can be seen as a reddish bump that is larger and contains pus (often referred to as cystic acne). The emergence of cystic acne on the skin is said to also be caused by heredity.

For the treatment of acne pimples actually rarely can be treated only with drugs that are sold freely on the market, because it requires examination and treatment according to skin type and its causes and sometimes it takes a combination of several drugs from a dermatologist. The doctor will ask further about your habits in treating the skin, find the cause of the appearance of pimples on your skin, and examine the condition of the skin directly.
Some medications that can help reduce acne for example:
Antibiotics, whether taken or topical antibiotics which are blended / mixed with other acne medications (usually when the condition of acne is severe, antibiotics are given in tablets / taken). The use of antibiotics requires a doctor's prescription.
Ointments that contain retinoids (function to trigger the replacement of dead skin cells with new skin cells).
A topical ointment containing salicylic acid or azelaic acid which can kill germs that cause acne and prevent clogged pores.
Medicines that contain benzoyl peroxide which works to reduce inflammation and 'open' the pores of clogged skin, and kill bacteria that cause acne. For normal use it is recommended at night (because it makes the skin more sensitive to sunlight).
and so forth.
