Hello good morning Octavia.
Acne appears due to blockage of facial pores by oil produced by oil glands on the face, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Factors that can trigger acne include hormonal factors (before or during menstruation, during pregnancy, experiencing reproductive hormone disorders, etc.), psychological stress, heredity, use of cosmetics that clog pores or even cause facial skin irritation, friction. on skin with an unsanitary surface (for example with a hat, mobile phone surface or screen, etc.).
Hardened pimple can be a papule, pustule, nodule, or cyst (cyst). If the pimple is basically on the surface of the skin, it is classified as a papule. In pustules, nodules, and cysts, the base of the pimple lies beneath the surface of the skin. What distinguishes it is that in pustules and cysts, there is pus in the acne, while in the nodule type there is no. Pustular-type acne also has blister-like characteristics.
The treatment of acne conditions must be adjusted by the type of acne experienced and the severity of the acne, and to find out, it is necessary to do a direct examination. Treatment can be in the form of external medicine, oral medication, even in more severe conditions, treatment can be done with certain actions, for example chemical peels, light therapy, lasers, extraction and drainage, steroid injections, etc. It is recommended that you first check your facial skin with a skin specialist (SPKK) to find out the type of acne you have, the severity, and the most appropriate treatment, ok?
