Acne Treatments And Common Brands Available In Nigeria by Bimbo25(f): 4:35pm On Apr 19, 2009
Acne according to dermatologists ‘is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin’s oil glands (sebaceous glands) and hair follicles’. The sebaceous glands make an oily substance that is known as sebum. It empties onto the skin surface through an opening in the follicle called a pore. These factors lead to plugged pores and outbreaks of lesions commonly called pimples or zits.

It is usually caused by five factors which are Hormones, Excess Sebum, Bacteria, Inflammation and Follicle fallout.

There are many kinds of acne treatments that are available. Acne treatments can be natural or chemically based.

Examples of Chemical acne treatments that are commonly used include:
 Salicylic acid: Common brands include
  1. Noxzema: Available as cleansers, creams and scrubs.

  2. Clean and Clear: Also available as cleansers and scrubs.

 Benzoyl peroxide: Available in gel, cream or lotion forms. Common brands are Clearex 10, Oxy 10, Oxy on the Spot, Panoxy 10 or Panoxy 5.

 Tretinion: The most common brand available is Retin A cream.

 Antibiotics like Doxycycline, Minocycline and Tetracycline. This can be found in any pharmacy shop (i said pharmacy not patent medicine sellers or chemists). Brands of doxycycline include Doxycap, Interdox e.t.c.
 Antibiotic, Anti-inflammatory and antifungal lotions or cream:
   1. Neo-medrol
   2. Neo-presol
   3. Acneaway cream.

I'm so glad I stumbled on this post. I started using Clearex 10, d small tube on Monday. Though d pimples hv almost dried up, I jst noticed a few rashes on my forehead dis evening. And again, my face esp my nose has become very dry and peeling off. Should I discontinue? How long before I start seeing improvements. I've neva had such magnitude of breakouts before!
