Acne is one of the most common dermatologic conditions, affecting millions of individuals in the World. It’s characterized by whiteheads, blackheads and blemishes. In general, acne typically develops in teenagers; however, many adults have some degree of acne as well.
The exact cause of acne is unknown. Hormonal changes during the teenage years, as well as during pregnancy, may be contributing factors. In general, there are two types of acne:
- Noninflammatory acne, characterized by the presence of whiteheads and blackheads.
- Inflammatory acne, characterized by the presence of pimples, which may rupture to form inflammatory lesions that are raised, reddened areas on the skin called “papules.”
In the majority of cases, individuals exhibit both types of acne. Acne typically occurs in the facial area, chest and back, where the sebaceous glands are the most prominent. Acne can also occur on other areas of the body as well, such as on the neck and upper arms.
CAUSES OF ACNE:
There are a variety of factors that may contribute to or worsen acne. These factors can be classified as environmental, physical or emotional. Examples of these factors include:
- Oil-based cosmetic use.
- Stress and anxiety.
- Humidity or exposure to dirt.
- Premenstrual changes or hormonal changes.
- Physical irritation from occlusive clothing, headbands, hats, helmets, etc.
- Use of certain medications, such as phenytoin, isoniazid, phenobarbital, lithium, quinine,
rifampin and steroids.
There are various preventative measures that may prevent or reduce acne flare-ups. Examples include:
- To prevent the incidence of scarring, never squeeze or pick acne lesions.
- Establish a daily skin-care regimen, which includes cleansing the skin with a soft wash cloth,
warm water and an appropriate facial soap at least twice a day.
- Use only oil-free skin and hair care products.
- Avoid scrubbing the skin when cleansing.
- Women should use makeup that is oil-free or labeled “non-comedogenic.”
- Always cleanse skin after sweating.
- Wear daily sun protection, since some acne medications may increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight.
In general, the goals of acne treatment are to prevent or minimize pimples, and to prevent scarring. Early treatment is best to avoid scarring. The treatment selected for acne is dependent upon the type of acne and the severity of the acne.
