Acne or pimples is the most common chronic inflammatory skin problem that affects many people all around the globe. Many teens, women, and men are affected by severe acne and breakouts that can affect their face, jawline, neck, chest, shoulder, and back.
In acne, the skin pores get clogged with dirt, bacteria, and oil. Clogging of the pores causes inflammation and pimples formation. Multiple factors are responsible for causing acne such as hormonal imbalance, improper diet, sebum production in excess, and the invasion and growth of bacteria. Severe acne extends deep into the skin and tends to be painful. Cysts, nodules, blackheads, whiteheads are seen when the acne is severe. Acne is diagnosed and graded on the type and basis of lesions.
Living with acne can be tough and can also lead to developing anxiety, depression, and poor self-esteem. Therefore, acne has also been recognized as a psychosocial problem.
Teenage acne is common but unlike the popular belief one must seek help from a dermatologist to do away with it. Treatment helps in preventing further breakouts as well as the formation of scars. Also, visiting a dermatologist will help determine the exact cause of acne and treat it accordingly.
