KNOW>>>HEALTH HUB►PIMPLES>>>F or millions, this condition has stopped them from getting that
perfect girlfriend or posing for that lovely picture. Acne (or pimples, spot or zit) is a common skin
condition in which the skin pores become clogged,
forming pimples which become inflamed and
infected pus (abscess). Although it has spoilt the perfect dinners for many, it
is surprisingly very easy to control despite the
brouhaha over it. Acne tends to develop in teenagers
as a result of the interaction among hormones, oils
and bacteria found on the skin and in the hair (like
Propionibacteri um acnes). During puberty, sebaceous (oil-producing) glands in the skin become hyperactive and the excess oil
blocks the skin pores with the formation of what is
called a comedo. Bacteria in the pores break fats in
the skin further irritating it. It is worse in winter and
better in summer, because of the sun. Most form on the face, neck, back, chest and
shoulders. Anyone can get acne, but it is common in
teenagers and young adults. It is not serious, but it
can cause scars, and many consider it 'uncool'. Now, it is important to state that diet has little or no
effect on acne even though some think they are
sensitive to certain foods. But, stopping the food and
taking it after a few weeks can help determine if
there is a correlation. That said, you can buy a bottle
of groundnuts on your way to school this morning...lol. It may also appear during menses in young women
and may either increase or decrease during
pregnancy. Teenagers using anabolic steroids are
going to worsen their cases, and the same goes for
some cosmetics. Stress can also worsen it so stop
worrying! WHAT TO DO: Now, if you want to surprise your girlfriend this new
year with a flawless face or reduce the sadness of
your boyfriend (LOL!), you can make use of the
following: -►Try as much as possible not to touch the face or
affected areas (difficult ba?) -►Washing the face has no effect except to improve
appearance. However, dabbing warm water over the
face compresses the comedones and makes them
easier to remove. Far from preventing acne, frequent
washing may actually irritate pores and cause them
to become clogged. Your doctor will show you the correct way to remove a comedone with the use of a
loop extractor or a sterile needle. Stop that pinch-
bursting joor! -►Drugs like isotretinoin and antibiotics such as
tetracyclin and clindamycin can be taken (see your
doctor). -►Sunlight can also help as it dries the skin and
reduces scaling. But if you are placed on tretinoin, do
not expose yourself to the sun to prevent severe
skin irritation. -►For a woman who develops severe pimples
during her menstrual period, an oral contraceptive
may help but therapy may take 4-6 months for
results to show. SUMMARY: Nothing is as good as fixing an
appointment with your dermatologist. And stop
taking pimples serious. Cos it isn't!
