Side Effects Of Using A Doctor’s Cream When Acne Prone Skin Conditions?
Good afternoon, I want to ask about the zit that I have experienced lately, it has started to spread even more from the same chin, if only forehead. And I took the initiative to stop the hazelin image that I used to fear from there, and there were friends who recommended it in a doctor’s cream, what is that? I am afraid that it will be worse and dependence if it’s my cream … that’s the solution, thank you.
Hello Change Ngaran,
Acne is a skin disease that is caused because it is more often found in people with oily skin types. Acne also often occurs in people in their teens and young adults. Factors causing acne are:
Hair follicles on the skin (pores) are blocked by dead skin cells
Excessive sebum production which then further clogs
An increase in the number of bacteria on the skin which then causes infection
Inflammation in response to the skin
Some diseases and conditions that cause hyperandrogens, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and long-term corticosteroid use can also cause skin breakouts. Acne can appear on the face, back, chest, and neck. Types of acne also vary from whiteheads black, black, pustules (festering zits), papules (small lumps, usually reddish), nodules (larger than papules), and cystic (large lumps filled with fluid). Acne is also often accompanied by complaints of itching and pain.
Acne treatment targets all four of the causes of acne that have been mentioned above. Treatment also varies depending on the severity of acne and the type of acne you are experiencing. Acne treatment is not instant and requires patient compliance in drug use. Acne medications generally work by decreasing inflammation, modifying skin keratinization, reducing sebum production, and reducing infection. Medications commonly used for the treatment of acne include:
Topical retinoids (external use - topical skin)
Topical benzoyl peroxide
Topical salicyl acid
Topical azelaic acid
Oral antibiotics (drink)
If acne arises due to hormonal abnormalities, then the doctor can provide hormonal therapy as well (oral contraception). Keep in mind that what is referred to as a true "doctor's cream" is a topical treatment that is obtained after you have an examination with a doctor, especially a specialist skin and genitals. Not true "doctor's cream" is sold freely and is used without the instructions of the examining doctor. Creams prescribed by a dermatologist are generally customized - tailored to the needs and condition of the patient's skin. The administration of drugs according to the correct dosage and frequency does not cause dependence. Another case if you use a "doctor's cream" which is purchased freely then used carelessly without knowing the composition of the cream and its effect on the skin.
Some precautions that you can take to avoid the appearance of more or more severe acne are:
Avoid using excessive makeup
Avoid comedogenic facial products
Always clean your face after using makeup or after activities
Consume nutritious food and drink enough water
Avoid squeezing pimples especially with dirty hands
Avoid excessive stress
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
