Acne is an inflammatory condition of the skin caused due to blockage of oil-discharging glands upon the skin. It can be super added with an infection which leads to pus formation and in the end to scar formation. Although teens are more prone to pimples, it can be seen in any age group undergoing turmoil in their hormones.
As everyone is aware that it can be due to pollution, lack of sleep, eating too much junk food and so on. Yet few people without much contribution from their side may have Acne. It can be severe at times as acne is not just a skin issue.
Is acne taking a toll on your self-esteem?
Acne affects at least 85% of teens; plus, 25% of all adult men and 50% of adult women get acne sooner or later in their grown-up lives.
For teenagers and grown-ups alike, the repetitive skin issue can be hard to cope with, leading to anxiety disorders and depression regardless of how old you are. In fact, a study published found that acne sufferers experienced social, psychological, and emotional problems similar to those with chronic health problems, such as epilepsy, diabetes, and arthritis.
The consequences of skin inflammation left untreated are more than shallow. If you find yourself skipping occasions and outings with friends, or if breakouts disturb you, it’s time to see a dermatologist who can help clear up your acne quickly and offer techniques for managing pimples in a healthy way.
Are the pimples sore, or do they leave scars?
Cystic acne (inflamed acne caused when the follicle wall is harmed) and nodules, which are agonizing, under-the-skin masses, are probably the hardest kinds of acne to treat, particularly without the assistance of a dermatologist.
Try to avoid the urge to pick or pop nodules or cystic breakout, as this can prompt severe scarring and even permanent skin harm. To diminish inflammation and lift the healing process, your dermatologist will suggest a regimen according to your skin type, the severity of your acne, and the progression of your scarring.
