What is acne vulgaris?

A common skin disease that evolves as a result of the blockage or inflammation of hair follicles and their accompanying sebaceous gland (a gland in the skin which generates lubricative oily matter into the hair follicles). It often results in whiteheads, blackheads or pimples and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.  

Myths and facts about the causes of acne:

First of all, we need to realize the myths and facts about the causes of acne.

  • A common misunderstanding is that acne vulgaris is a trivial condition and does not require medical attention. It is better to consult a doctor in cases of severe symptoms.
  • Acne is not always caused by a poor diet. Acne results from the hormones that create the overproduction of sebum that turns into blocks, resulting in inflammation and characteristic spots, blackheads or whiteheads.
  • Poor hygiene or dirty skin is not the reason for acne as most of the biological reactions that trigger acne takes place below the skin's surface. Scrubbing or over cleaning the skin may result in further damage to the skin.  
  • Squeezing acne is not the method to get rid of it instead, it can make them worse and may lead to inflammation or even scarring. In cases of severe acne, it is better to consult a doctor or dermatologist.
  • A misunderstanding that circulates is that Toothpaste, lemon and lime juice are the effective countermeasures of acne. Using such harsh contents on the skin may lead to unnecessary issues.

Types of acne:

Acne varies depending on the size, color, and intensity of the pain. Major types are:

  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Papules
  • Pustules
  • Nodules

Treatments:

If the self-care treatments are not effective it is better to consult a doctor. Your doctor can prescribe the proper medication for your problem. If your acne is fairly mild, you may be able to control it with over-the-counter products which are specifically for acne. Good daily skin care is always helpful.
