Acne Treatments

Do you have an acne problem?  What causes acne and what are the effective treatments?  While you're here, why not Try our Diet Wizard to find out which weight loss programs can help you lose the weight?

Acne

Note: BestDietForMe.com does NOT provide medical advice or diagnoses. You should always consult your physician first, before beginning any weight loss regimen or if suffering from a medical condition.

What Causes Acne?

Acne is a disease that affects the skin's oil glands. The small holes in your skin (pores) connect to oil glands under the skin. These glands make an oily substance called sebum. The pores connect to the glands by a canal called a follicle. Inside the follicles, oil carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin. A thin hair also grows through the follicle and out to the skin. When the follicle of a skin gland clogs up, a pimple grows.

Most pimples are found on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Acne is not a serious health threat but, it can cause scars.

How Does Acne Develop?

Sometimes, the hair, sebum, and skin cells clump together into a plug. The bacteria in the plug causes swelling. Then when the plug starts to break down, a pimple grows.

There are many types of pimples. The most common types are:

Whiteheads. These are pimples that stay under the surface of the skin.

Blackheads. These pimples rise to the skin's surface and look black. The black color is not from dirt.

Papules. These are small pink bumps that can be tender.

Pustules. These pimples are red at the bottom and have pus on top.

Nodules. These are large, painful, solid pimples that are deep in the skin.

Cysts. These deep, painful, pus-filled pimples can cause scars.

Who Gets Acne?

Acne is the most common skin disease. Nearly 17 million people in the United States have it. People of all races and ages get acne. But it is most common in teenagers and young adults. Nearly 85 percent of people between the ages of 12 and 24 get acne. For most people, acne goes away by age 30. But some people in their forties and fifties still get acne .

What Causes Acne?

The cause of acne is unknown. Doctors think certain factors might cause it:

The hormone increase in teenage years (this can cause the oil glands to plug up more often)

Hormone changes during pregnancy

Starting or stopping birth control pills

Heredity (if your parents had acne, you might get it, too)

Some types of medicine

Greasy makeup.

Acne that appears after 25 to 30 years of age occurs for one of these reasons:

Recurrence of acne that cleared up after adolescence

Flare-up of acne after a period of relative quiet—for example, during pregnancy

Occurs for the first time in a person who had never previously had acne.

Acne that appears for the first time in adulthood should be examined by a dermatologist who can investigate the underlying cause. Some causes of adult acne are:

Medication. Some medications that can induc...
