Acne Vulgaris can be divided in various types or stages. The beginning is with whiteheads and blackheads. Pimples are the second stage and the third stage is the severe form of acne- Cysts and nodules. The treatment of all three types is different.
Out of these treatment of nodules is biggest challenge. Nodules are large acne lesions highly inflamed and reach deep inside the skin. Nodules can be very painful. Let us know more about how to treat acne nodules with oral treatment.
The exact causes of acne are unknown, but doctors believe it results from several related factors.
One important factor is an increase in hormones called androgens (male sex hormones). These hormones increase in both boys and girls during puberty and cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge and secrete more sebum. Hormonal changes related to pregnancy; starting or stopping of birth control pills can also cause acne in women. Another factor is heredity. Researchers believe that the tendency to develop acne can be inherited from parents.
Benzoyl peroxide can improve acne by killing the acne bacteria and by unblocking oil gland pores and is good treatment for acne. There are many different benzoyl peroxide products available to you. The lower concentrations can be obtained over the counter (OTC), while higher strengths require a prescription. If you use more acne medication than directed by your doctor you can actually worsen your acne. Many over-the-counter acne treatments contain active ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Too much of either of these can cause your skin to become excessively dry or irritated. It can take time for your skin to adapt to new medications. Remember that it may take up to 8 weeks for any acne medication to have a noticeable effect. Use the medication exactly as directed by your doctor and if you don’t see an improvement within 8 weeks talk with your dermatologist.
With the immediate problem taken in hand the next stage of the three-way proactive approach to control acne is to choose an ideal skin toner. When shopping for the right product one should look for a skin toner that is alcohol free and is a water-based toner. This kind of skin toner will help remove dead skin cells and unplug clogged pores, allowing the skin to remain healthy and acne free and is good treatment for acne. It will also help in the removal of excess oil that usually forms on skins prone to acne eruptions. The application of such a skin tone on a regular basis will thus help balance the skin tone and maintain a skin that is acne free and free of oil imbalance and clogged pores.
