If you suffer from acne, chances are you would have tried more treatments than you can count, many of which had no effect on your skin. This may have left you wondering – are there better methods to treat acne. When treating acne people often overdo products, and don’t consider other factors that may influence breakout. We consider these issues below.
Acne vulgaris is a skin condition that occurs when a mix of oil and dead skin cells clog the pores, and leads to the growth of bacteria. It typically affects the face, chest, and back, and is common about teenagers, but midlife acne is also an issue. The condition often results in lesions such as pimples and pustules.
Acne is commonly treated with prescription or over-the-counter medicines; the choice depends on the extent of the breakout. Some of the drugs recommended may be topical i.e. applied to the skin, or taken orally. Topical medications may be in the form of a gel, lotion, cream, or soap. Treatment may sometimes involve a combination of medications.
