What is Acne?
Acne is a skin disease.
It is not as simple as I stated in the first sentence.
Acne is also known as acne vulgaris. It is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that makes you sufferer for a long time. And almost every man and woman face it more than once in his/her life.
Do you know how acne forms?
Before knowing that, you should know about the activity of sebaceous gland. It is tiny glands situated just below the skin. It produces an oily substance called sebum. This sebum goes up on your skin through pores to prevent your skin and hair from being dry. It’s the normal condition.
Acne forms when your skin pores get clogged. It can be clogged by anything like dead skin cells, dirt, debris, makeup, excess oils, etc. As a result, oil and newly grown hair can’t get out through the pores and the ACNE starts to form. And skin bacteria attack the acne and make the situation worse.
At every stage of acne, it has a different name like whiteheads, blackhead, pimples, cyst, zits, etc. Acne can appear on any part of your body. But, the oily skin part is more prone to acne.
Types of acne
Acne is categorized by considering various factors. In general, acne is mainly two types: non-inflammatory and inflammatory. The non-inflammatory includes whiteheads and blackheads. And the inflammatory includes papules, pustules, nodules, cysts, acne conglobata, and acne mechanica.
Let’s get a short brief…
The non-inflammatory acne (whiteheads and blackheads) are the primary stage of all types of acne. These types of acne can turn into severe or can get cured of automatically. It can be treated through over the counter skin care products like cream, lotion, face wash, toner, etc.
Another name of whiteheads are closed comedones. It is a primary form of acne. It occurs when the pores get clogged and covered by the skin. Due to the skin covering, the oil cannot come out and is stored under the skin. As a result, a white spot appears under the thin skin layer.
It is whiteheads.
You can easily treat it with some over the counter skin care products or by home remedies.
Blackheads are known as open comedones. The main difference between blackheads and whitehead is blackheads are open at the surface and whiteheads are closed.
When your pores are clogged by excess oils, dead skin cells, and hair follicles, and remain open at the surface. It gets connected to the air. When the sebum gets connected with the air, it oxidized and become hard. Finally, the blackheads turn into dark color. This color may black, gray, or brown.
Blackheads commonly appear on the nose, chin, and forehead. But, it can also appear on the other body parts. Like whiteheads, you can also use OTC skin care products to treat and remove blackheads.
Acne that makes your skin swollen and creates pain is called inflammatory acne.
Who is responsible for inflammation?
Generally, excess oils (sebum), dead skin cells, and dirt play role in all types of acne. But, in case of inflammation, bacteria play the main role. And it is Propionibacterium acnes(P. acnes).
It creates infection upper and deep beneath of your skin. Finally, it results in redness, swollen, pus-filled bump, and more. Which is too painful and embarrassing.
Inflammatory acne named differently due to their mode of appearance and activities. It includes papules, pustules, nodules, cysts, acne conglobata, and acne mechanica.
Papules: Papules are the primary type of inflammatory acne. It is small and solid pimples without any pus. The papules usually red or pink in color with an inflamed and swollen skin around it. They are sensitive to touch and pick.
Pustules: Pustules is one kind of inflamed acne. The general difference between pustules and papules is, pustules are filled with pus. This pus may color in white, yellow, brown, and flourish. Pustules often look like a white or yellow bump with a red skin around it.
Nodules: Nodules are severe types of acne that appear deep beneath your skin. It is a larger form of acne. It occurs when the pore gets clogged, swollen, and grow larger because of huge irritation.
Nodules generally don’t have pus but often painful and firm to touch. OTC treatment is not good enough to treat nodules. It should always be treated by dermatologists. They evaluate the condition and prescribe proper medication to control nodules.
I know it is hard to control yourself. But, never ever try to squeeze a nodule.
Cysts: Cysts are a severe form of acne which appears deep to your skin. It is usually filled with pus and painful to touch. This large painful bump results with severe infection caused by the accumulation of bacteria, sebum, and dead skin cells.
You should not treat cyst at home by yourself. You should go to the dermatologist or skin doctor to get the proper treatment. He will give you the proper medication to cure the infectious cyst. Sometime dermatologist need to conduct a minor surgery to remove the cyst from your body.
Acne Conglobata: It is a severe form of acne often caused as a side effect of taking a high amount steroids or testosterone. These are many inflamed nodules connected with each other below the skin.
Acne conglobate mainly occur in the back, chest, arms, neck, and buttock. And this type of acne mainly attacks the male.
When you notice its appearance, stop taking the drug like steroids and testosterone. And consult with a dermatologist ASAP to treat acne conglobata.
Acne Mechanica: This type of acne is quite different than others. It is usually triggered by the excess heat, pressure, and friction against the skin. Another name of acne mechanica is “sports-induced acne”. It usually affects the sportsman like an athlete who used to wear sports gear or helmet.
It can also be caused by wearing bulky and tight clothing. You can prevent this acne by wearing an absorbent material under your gear. But the best way is taking an immediate shower after sports.
Causes of Acne
The sebaceous gland beneath the skin produced oil (sebum) and it passes through the pores and comes on the skin. This is the normal procedure. Acne arises when the normal procedure disrupted by clogging pores.
We know acne occurs beneath and along with our skin surface. It can cause by both internal and external factors. The internal factor includes hormonal change and external factors include bacterial infection, dirt & impurities, pore-clogging cosmetics, medication, diet, etc. Though these factors are internal and external, they are all interconnected with each other.
Let me give you a short brief in a few words.
It occurs inside your body. The main internal factor is hormonal changes in your body.
Hormonal Factor: Hormonal change is one of the major factors that are responsible for acne. It mainly occurs during the time of puberty. In this time, teenagers produce a high level of androgens hormones (mainly the testosterone; which naturally remain high in male).
This hormone is responsible for acne formation. It enlarges the sebaceous gland and increases sebum production. Thus, the accumulation of oil inside the clogged pores increases day by day. And finally, acne starts to appear.
On the other hand, estrogen is responsible for the formation of acne. Both low and high level of estrogen is responsible for acne. Estrogen minimizes the effect of testosterone by reducing the oil production in your skin. When your testosterone level is normal but estrogen is low, you are at a risk of acne formation. Because the balancing partner of the testosterone is low.
Some other factors (pregnancy and menstrual period) also responsible for acne formation by changing hormonal balance.
These factors always come from the external environment. It reacts to create acne both internally and externally. These include bacterial infection, pore-clogging materials, medicine, stress, and more.
Mainly bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes(P. acnes) is responsible for acne. I have said before, all the factors are interconnected with each other. And it is completely true for the acne caused by bacteria.
P. acnes bacteria mainly live in the pores and follicles, deep beneath the surface of your skin. And sebum, cellular debris and metabolic byproducts of tissues act as a primary source of nutrition and energy of the bacteria.
When the sebaceous glands produce more sebum, it triggers more bacterial growth. And the bacteria secrete protein and digestive enzyme that digest the sebum and other cellular byproducts of their growth. This protein and enzyme destabilize the cellular layer of the follicles and trigger inflammation through infection. And the result is acne.
Pore Clogging Materials (Dirt, Debris, and Makeup): You already know that when the pores get clogged the excess oil can’t get out to the surface. The pore clogging materials like dirt, debris, and makeup are responsible for this situation.
You can’t avoid dirt to shed on your face. So, you need to clean them properly after coming home from outside. You can use a face wash or cleanser to make your skin clean and fresh. It is better if you use a face wash or cleanser having acne treating capabilities (buy from amazon.com).
You should use a gentle scrub to clean your face once or twice a week to open your pores. If your skin is prone to acne, avoid makeup that clogs your pores at any cost.
Side Effect of Medicine: For the side effects of certain medication, you may face acne or acne type bumps on your skin. These types of medicine include lithium, anticonvulsants, corticosteroids, barbiturates, DHEA, androgenic steroids, and the drug that contain bromides and iodides.
It is not obvious that these drugs will create acne, but it may. If you notice some acne or acne-like bumps on your skin suddenly after taking some medication. Talk to your doctor who prescribes you or consults with a skin specialist. And these types of acne can’t be treated with face wash, cleanser, toner, lotion, and other OTC products.
Stress: Your lifestyle can worsen the condition of acne. Too much stress and anxiety create hormonal imbalance inside your body. It triggers the sebaceous gland to produce more oil (sebum). Thus the stress hampers the condition of your acne.
Factors Behind the Teenage Acne
Teenage acne, almost everybody face it.
All the acne causing factors may responsible for your teenage acne. But, the main Villain is hormonal changes.
At the beginning of your teenage, the puberty period, huge changes occur in your body that you can notice from outside (harsh voice). It happens due to hormonal changes in your body. It is a transitional period for you and your body from one stage to another.
During the puberty period, the testosterone level gets higher than normal level. And the high level of testosterone triggers sebaceous gland to produce more oil (sebum). This oil boosts bacterial growth. Finally, it leads to teenage acne.
Symptoms of Acne
Symptoms of acne are quite similar to its types. You will notice it on that body part which has the tendency to produce more oil. These parts include the face, chin, neck, chest, shoulder, back, etc. Let’s see which symptoms help you to recognize the types of your acne.
Whiteheads – small closed pores with a white appearance.
Blackheads – small open but clogged pores with black, brown, or gray appearance due to the oxidation of air.
Papules – small reddish bumps without pus inside. Tender to touch.
Pimples – papules like bumps. But the only difference is, its inside is filled with pus.
Nodules – large hard painful lumps beneath the surface of the skin.
The whiteheads and blackheads are the primary forms of acne. You can treat it with the OTC skincare products. But, the other types are really dangerous. You should put special attention to them.
In Which Age Acne Occur More
Acne mainly appears in the teenage period. It starts with the puberty due to the hormonal change inside your body.
Wait, don’t think you can stay acne free after passing of your teenage years. It can appear any stage of your life, even in the older age. But it is not so severe and nasty like the acne that you face in your teenage period.
The Most Affected Part of the Body
Acne basically appears on those parts where oil glands are available. The most affected parts of our body face, shoulder, back, and buttocks. The facial parts include T-zone, cheeks, jawline, chin, hairline, and scalp are more prone to acne.
Simply, the parts of your body have the tendency to produce more oil is prone to acne.
Measure the Condition of Your Acne Problem
There is no defined conditional category of acne. To treat and diagnosis acne, dermatologist always identify them as mild, moderate, and severe acne.
If you have acne, you should know in which condition they are now.
It is the most primary form of acne. It includes some whiteheads, blackheads, and occasional form of papule or pustule. They are not widespread and don’t create too much inflammation. It can appear at any stage of your life, both teenage life and adult age.
These types of acne sometimes get cured by itself with time. In this situation, you should keep your skin clean and fresh.
The moderate form of acne includes many blackheads, whiteheads, and some papules & pustules. You can notice small dark and white bumps on your skin and some pimples which are red or purple in color. Sometimes, these pimples may be filled with pus. And it creates painful inflammation.
Only OTC products are not good enough for this situation. You should consult with a dermatologist to get the proper treatment.
Severe acne includes lots of papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts spread over either on your face or on other body parts. It creates unbearable inflammation and too much pain. This acne condition completely destroys your look and personality.
You should consult with a doctor as early as possible. Long-term medication needs to heal this condition.
When to See a Doctor
It is not possible to figure out the exact time of consulting with a dermatologist for your acne.
Everybody try to solve their acne problem by themselves. And it is not a bad idea.
If your acne is mild, you can try to treat them with some drugstore products. The products include face wash, cleanser, lotion, toner, moisturizer, etc. Most of the time mild acne goes away with these drugstore products.
But things are not always going the right way. Most of the time people fail to choose the right drugstore products to treat acne. They are always biased by provoking advertise.
Now I tell you when you have to make a decision to see a doctor.
First, use a drugstore product (which have acne treating properties like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, etc.) for six weeks. If you don’t get any improvement, consult with a doctor as soon as possible.
Some acne are serious in nature from its beginning. It can be cystic acne or nodules. Here, drugstore products are not enough. You should talk to a doctor to get the right acne treatment.
Know How to Prevent Acne
A golden speech – prevention is better than cure. If you take the proper preventive step, you are at low risk in acne problem. Here you get some preventive measures that will make you less prone to acne.
Know Which Skin Types You Won
If you want to care your skin, the first and most important work is to know your skin types. It gives you a clear idea what to do with your skin to stay acne free.
Oily skin types are more prone to acne than other skin types. It has high tendency to produce oil. And you know, more oil means more bacterial growth which leads to acne formation.
Don’t think you are completely safe from acne if you have other skin types. Acne can form on any skin types. But, the person with oily and combination skin needs to be more conscious.
Maintain a Clean and Fresh Face
A clean and fresh face is a precondition for being acne free. You should wash your face at least twice a day. And it is always better to wash your face every time you come home from outside.
To clean your face, choose a cleanser or face wash that suits your facial skin and obviously mild. Use lukewarm water to wash your face. It opens up your facial pores and makes your cleansing process effective. Don’t use any hard soap or too hot water.
Exfoliate Your Face Once a Week
Regular cleansing is really good. But it is better to have an exfoliation once a week. It helps to remove the stubborn gunk and impurities from your face.
There are lots of facial scrubs available in the market. You should choose the best facial scrub to clean your face. If you have enough time, you can try a homemade facial scrub.
Before scrubbing, open up your pores with warm water or steam. Then apply the scrub on your face and massage in a circular motion with your hands. Don’t be harsh in this job. It also helps you to get a glowing complexion.
Moisturize Your Face after Washing and Scrubbing
Moisture is the basic need of your skin. It helps your skin to function properly. When you wash your skin, it loses its natural oils and moisture. This triggers your skin to produce more oil.
So, use a moisturizer to keep your face hydrated and healthy. As you want to moisturize your face to prevent acne, choose a right moisturizer. Use a moisturizer that is noncomedogenic, fragrance-free, and free of harsh chemicals.
And a best practice to use moisturizer is applying it before sleep.
Drink Plenty of Water
Moisturizing from outside is not enough to keep your skin hydrated if you have a bad habit of drinking less water. It not only makes your skin dull and gloomy but also hampers your overall health. And dry skin has high tendency to produce more oil.
To keep your skin hydrated from inside, you should drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. And increase it in some conditions like pregnancy or after exercise. You should drink enough water if you stay in a place of hot and dry weather.
Be Conscious about Makeup
Makeup is the easiest way to look beautiful. It makes you attractive to others. But skin with acne should avoid makeup ingredients like foundation or powder. It clogs pores and worsens the condition of your acne.
If you don’t have any other option without makeup, use a noncomedogenic, oil-free, fragrance-free makeup. Make sure all makeup elements are free of skin-harming chemicals.
Remove all makeup from the face at the end of the day. Use a mild cleanser to remove the makeup residue. After removing makeup, use a moisturizer or toner.
But the best way is saying no to makeup.
Avoid Sun Exposure
Sun exposure has the direct effect on acne formation. Longtime under sunray dries your skin that triggers to produce more oils. It leads to pore blocking and inflammation. Try to avoid the sun rays between the 10 am to 2 pm.
Use an umbrella or long brimmed hat before going out. Ultraviolet rays of the sun create hyperpigmentation and dark spots. You can use sunscreen to keep your skin safe from the harmful sun rays. But choose one that is noncomedogenic and oil-free.
Stop Touching Face with Hands
I think hands are the only body part that contains more dirt, grime, and bacteria than others. When you touch your face with hands, all those things go to your face. Definitely, it is not good for your facial skin. If your face is prone to acne, always wash your hands before touching face.
Now I tell to do the hardest task.
Don’t be a pimple popper. It is very hard to avoid, even I failed on this. When something appears on the face, it provokes us to squeeze. Don’t do it. It worsens the situation of acne and creates infections, inflammation, and finally a stubborn scar.
Eat Healthy Diet
With your overall health benefits, healthy food also plays a significant role in acne control. You should eat a balanced diet in each meal. It includes grainy foods, whole wheat, nuts, milk, fish, egg, protein-based food, vegetable and obviously fruits.
Healthy food gives you essential nutrients to work and proper energy to your skin to fight acne. Make sure your foods contain vitamins such as A, C & E and essential minerals. You should eat foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acid. It boosts cellular turnover and reduces inflammation. It is available in flaxseed, almond, sunflower seed, sardines, soybeans, and salmon.
And avoid the consumption of too much junk and oily food.
Try Some Home Remedies
Home remedies are a great tool to prevent and treat acne. If you have some time in your hand, try some home remedies to prevent acne. It is highly recommended because home remedies are completely safe for your acne.
There are lots of home remedy recipes available to prevent acne. The common ingredients that are used to prevent and acne are neem leaf, apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, witch hazel, aloe vera, tamarind and more.
Use Some OTC products
Over the Counter (OTC) products are the handy tools to prevent acne formation. To stay acne free, you need to keep your face clean, moisturized, and fresh. For cleansing, you can use face wash, moisturizer, cleanser, and scrub. For hydration, you should use cream, lotion, moisturizer, toner, serum, etc.
All these products are available at your nearest drugstore or super shop. Be sure they have the quality to prevent and treat acne and oily skin. They are mainly infused with one or more ingredients like salicylic acid, tea tree oils, green tea, benzoyl peroxide and more.
Use any of these products to minimize the risk of your acne formation. And choose them wisely according to your skin types.
Practice a Better Lifestyle
Better and sound life very much important to prevent and control acne. You should stay stress-free at any cost.
To stay stress-free, attend prayer regularly, do yoga and exercise, and spend more time with your family and friends.
And finally, I don’t tell you to limit. If possible, stop smoking and drinking alcohol.
If you have mild acne, you can treat it simply with over the counter products. If not, then…
It is the time to consult with a dermatologist.
In this section, you don’t get any exact medication. Because I can’t see the condition of your acne. Only your doctor can give you the perfect medication by diagnosing the condition of your acne. Here you get a clear concept of acne treatments are now available in the world.
Mainly three types of medication are available nowadays – topical medication, oral medication, and therapy. Sometimes you need to treat with both topical and oral medication.
Topical medications are widely used to treat acne. And the frequently used topical medications mainly contain salicylic acid, azelaic acid, retinoids, antibiotics, dapsone, etc. You can get them in a form of cream or ointment.
Salicylic Acid: You can find it as an ointment or as an active ingredient of various over the counter product like cream, lotion, toner, pads, etc.
Salicylic acid mainly controls the cell shedding on your skin. It helps to cure mild acne by unclogging pores. But, salicylic acid doesn’t show any effect on sebum production and doesn’t kill bacteria. When you stop using it, the benefits will stop. You should use it continuously to get its effectivity. For this, a face wash or cleanser with salicylic acid is recommended for acne-prone skin.
Azelaic Acid: It treats your acne with its antibacterial properties. It is naturally derived from the grain of wheat and barley.
It effectively reduces blackheads and whiteheads by killing bacteria. Sometimes it is prescribed by combining with erythromycin for better efficacy. It has some side effects like dry skin, minor irritation & stinging, and sometimes allergic reactions.
Retinoid: Like other topical medication, you can find it as cream, lotion, and ointment. It can provide the beneficiary result for moderate to severe acne. After application, it unclogs pores and reduces acne outbreaks by preventing further clogging. It also helps you in acne scars.
At the beginning, it may create redness, skin peeling, or worsen your acne. To overcome it, apply retinoid products every other day until your skin gets used to it. Then apply it daily.
Antibiotics: To treat your acne, antibiotics can be given either topical or oral form. Topical antibiotics help your acne by killing bacteria and reducing inflammation. Topical antibiotics usually come with peroxide as a combined medication to reduce the chance of developing bacterial resistance.
You can use both retinoid and antibiotics to treat acne. But don’t use at the same time. If you apply antibiotic at morning, then use the retinoid in the evening. And always consult with a doctor before using antibiotics.
Dapsone: It is a topical drug to treat inflammatory acne. It has both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It may create redness and skin dryness as side effects.
Oral medication mainly used to treat serious types of acne. It has more side effects than topical medication. Never ever try to take them without prescription.
Oral Antibiotics: Oral antibiotics are one of the best solutions where topical antibiotics fail to treat acne. It is mainly used for deep and cystic acne where topical antibiotics can’t reach.
There are several types of oral antibiotics available that effectively treat acne. Mainly clindamycin and erythromycin are the frequently prescribed drug by the doctors to treat acne. I don’t mention any dosage. Because it should be taken according to the suggestions of your doctor. He is the best judge to diagnosis and treat your acne problem. Sometimes retinoid or benzoyl peroxide may give as a co-drug with oral antibiotics.
Oral antibiotics may create some minor side effects like a headache, nausea & vomiting, abdominal discomfort, allergic reactions, etc.
And obviously, complete the full course of antibiotics to stop the development of resistance.
Isotretinoin: It is one of the best oral medications to treat acne. This treatment is mainly used to treat severe types of acne like cystic acne or nodules.
85% patient gets fully cured from the serious types of acne after just one course of isotretinoin treatment. One course of treatment takes approximately 4 to 5 months. (Source)
Never ever take this drug without a prescription. Because, it creates some adverse effects on your health like ulcerative colitis, birth defect, depression, and suicidal tendency. This oral medication is so sensitive that you must be enrolled in iPLEDGE™ (Program by USFDA).
And you should stay under the direct supervision of your dermatologist during taking this drug.
Oral Contraceptive: Oral contraceptive is a widely used medication for acne treatment. You know that hormonal change is one of the main key factors of causing acne. This medication is used to treat mild to moderate type of acne.
Three types of oral contraceptive are approved by FDA for the treatment of acne. They are ortho tri-cyclen, estrostep, and YAZ. It takes few months to treat your acne with an oral contraceptive.
Besides these some other orally medication like anti-androgen agents are used to treat acne.
Some therapies also applied to treat acne. It includes lasers, manual extraction of whiteheads and blackheads, chemical peel, and steroid injection.
If you want to take any of these therapies, consult with your doctor to know which one is best for you. Make sure you take these therapies from an expert. Otherwise, it may create serious damages to your skin.
If possible take an opinion from a person who has taken therapies for acne before.
Acne Treatment During Pregnancy
Don’t worry, if you see some acne on your face after you get pregnant. It is normal. It happens due to the hormonal imbalance during pregnancy. And it vanishes by itself after pregnancy. You should not use any types of medicine for acne during pregnancy.
So, what is the solution?
The best way is to leave them alone. Because the use of oral and topical medications may lead to serious birth defect or fetal death.
Sometimes, erythromycin, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, or azelaic acid are prescribed for the topical use during pregnancy. But, it is safe to stay far from any types of medication for pregnancy induces acne. Always talk to your doctor fast before taking any action.
You can also use some commercial skin caring products to make your face clean and clear. Make sure they are safe for your skin and you in pregnancy. And they should contain acne treating ingredients.
