The Quickest Way When It Comes To Acne Treatment.

By Zondra Rose

If you have been plagued with acne at some point in your life, you are probably obsessed with washing your face all the time - making sure that it's clean to keep away the acne Ironically, people who are prone to acne are actually quite particular with cleanliness. They often wash their faces and making sure that their body is clean. By doing this, they are hoping that the affliction will eventually go away.

Acne is common to people nowadays. Acne is also known as pimples or more scientifically, vulgaris. It is caused when your pores get clogged causing an accumulation of fatty material from your oil gland or sebaceous gland.

Acne Cosmetic. This is the acne that is cause by use of cosmetics. The use of cosmetics alone does not cause acne It is actually the kind of cosmetics and the prolonged use of cosmetics that irritates the skin. Your pores react negatively to the ingredients and acne results. Acne Conglobata. This is the type of acne that is largely caused by hereditary factors. If your parents suffered from severe acne you will probably suffer the same.

Acne fulminans. This is the acne that appears on a person's torso. This is the painful kind of acne because this is accompanied by pain and fevers.

Acne Detergents. This acne is caused by soaps, detergents and cleansers which irritate the skin.

What is it? A person suffering from cystic acne may experience agonizingly painful cysts forming on the skin's deep pores. This type of acne usually appears on the face, chest and back. They vary in size from the tiniest painful cyst-like formations to cysts that are a few inches big. The horrid thing about this type of acne is that once the formations break out, the bacteria will spread on other pores or skin areas and will infect these pores so that they too will start to form cysts or nodules.

This type of acne often plagues men more than women. Cystic acne takes longer than the common acne to heal. They also often leave ugly pockmarks and blemishes in their wake.

Acne Keloidalis. It is the African race that suffers much from this acne The lesions and inflammations generally appear on the neck.

Acne Mallorca. This is the type of acne that is caused by excessive sun exposure.

Your genes are actually responsible for acne breakouts. Of course, there are other possible causes of this type of acne. This includes bacteria, excessive production of sebum and grime.

Blackheads and whiteheads are signs of non-inflammatory acne. Unlike non-inflammatory acnes, inflammatory acnes are harder to identify. Some symptoms of inflammatory acnes may be papules, pustules and in more severe cases, nodules or cysts.

If you have a stubborn case of acne and if you feel like your acne are far more painful and bigger than usual, you should definitely visit your dermatologist. Cystic acne is not easily cured by OTC drugs. Often, you'd need prescription acne medications for this type of acne.

Your dermatologist may prescribe oral medications like isotretinoin which helps in shrinking overactive oil glands. Their shrinkage then limits or minimizes the production of sebum. You may also be prescribed with tetracycline which is another form of antibiotic that is an effective treatment for acne.

Another treatment which may be more effective is that avoid grain products such as bread, corn, cereals and pastries.

Also, don't forget to always drink your vitamins because it may just help you with acne. But still, these methods may not work for you. Maybe, you should just use your own judgment in treating your acne or just consult your dermatologist.
