What is Acne?
Acne is a chronic inflammatory disease of the pilo sebaceous follicles (i.e. Hair with oil producing glands attached to hair) characterized by comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules, pustules, nodules and ultimately leading to scars.
Who gets Acne?
Close to 100% of people between the ages of twelve and seventeen have at least an occasional whitehead, blackhead or pimple regardless of race or ethnicity. Acne starts between the ages of ten and fifteen years of age and usually lasts till twenty years of age; however, acne can persist into the late twenties or thirties or even beyond. Some people get acne for the first time as adults and this is known as adult acne.
What are the causes of Acne?
- Bacteria: Bacteria that normally lives on the skin plays a role in acne development. The bacteria are known as propionibacterium acnes (p. acnes). The bacteria content can increase in people whose faces are not clean.
- Hormones: During the teen years increased levels of sex hormones causes the oil glands of the skin to produce increased amount of oil. These excess skin oils tend to bind with cellular debris causing a blockage and producing a fertile environment for the bacteria to grow.
The bacteria causes inflammation, pus, swelling and redness. In adult acne, excessive hormones produced due to polycystic ovaries and other hormonal imbalances causing excess oil production and inflammation, which leads to acne.
What are the factors that precipitate or aggravate acne?
- Stress- Stress is frequently implicated in aggravation of acne while acne itself induces stress.
- Sweat- Sweating in a hot and humid environment causes deterioration in 15% of acne patients.
- Menstruation- Pre menstrual flare of acne occurs in 70% of female acne patients.
- Friction and pressure- Friction and pressure from helmets, backpacks and tight collars can induce blackheads and papules. Pressure from face massages or facials can aggravate acne.
- Pregnancy- Pregnancy has an unpredictable effect on acne. Pre-existing acne may aggravate or remit during pregnancy.
- Diet- High glycemic load foods (sugar loaded and starchy foods), oily foods may aggravate acne.
- Drugs- Oral contraceptives, anti tuberculosis medication, oral steroids, anti depressants may aggravate acne.
It is advisable to visit a board certified dermatologist for treatment of acne instead of over the counter treatment as the dermatologist treats the root cause of acne.

There are a few things in our lives which we don’t value until we lose it and our hair is one of those blessings that we are endowed with. For many such people, the hair transplant treatment can bring back the hair that they have lost owing to both external and internal factors. There are a variety of causes behind hair fall such as regular exposure to pollution and harmful UV rays. Also, our daily dose of stress and tension has a role to play in this respect.
What is a hair transplant treatment?
If an individual is bothered about the thinning of hair at certain places, then hair transplant is a treatment worth consideration. It will not only restore back the lost tresses but boost up the self-confidence as well.
Hair transplant is a kind of surgery which helps in moving the hair that you already possess to an area which has less or no hair at all. The treatment has been in practise since the 1950s in the United States of America although the advancement of medical science has contributed to making hair transplant much effective only in the recent years.
How is hair transplant done?
The hair transplant treatment is done at the doctor’s office where he removes a thin strip of skin measuring between 6 and 12 inches from the back of the head. This strip of skin is kept aside, and the scalp is closed and is instantly hidden by the hair present in the surrounding.
The next task of the surgeon is to divide the removed piece of scalp into 500 to 2000 little grafts where each of them comprises of a single or a few hairs. The type and the amount of graphs that an individual requires is based on the type of hair, quality, hair colour, hair condition and the size of the area where the hair is required to be transplanted. The actual process of hair transplant is all the same after this point. Once the graft is prepared, the surgeon would clean the area and numb the zone where the hair would be transplanted. Then slits or holes are created with the aid of needle or scalpel and finally the each graft is delicately placed in one of the holes. The whole process of hair transplantation may take 4 to 8 hours depending on the extent of treatment. An individual may require another session of the treatment if he or she decides to get thicker hair or if the problem of hair loss persists.
What you may expect after the treatment?
After the hair transplantation, the scalp may become very tender, and the doctor may prescribe am antibiotic and a painkiller to alleviate the condition. It is normal for the transplanted hair to fall out but the new growth of hair should start within a few months after the treatment. Most people who are treated with hair transplant notice 60 percent of renewed hair growth within 6 to 9 months after the treatment.
Lupus is an inflammatory disease that is chronic in nature. It occurs when your tissues and organs are attacked by your body's own immunity system. The inflammation that this disease causes can affect the other parts of your body as well, like the joints, kidneys, skin, brain etc. It is often difficult to diagnose because it lacks distinct symptoms. However, one of the most identifiable symptoms of lupus is a ring-shaped rash on the face.
Lupus can be caused by a number of factors like:
- Excessive exposure to sunlight
- Susceptibility towards infections
- Certain anti-seizure, blood pressure and antibiotic medicines
The symptoms are neither distinct nor regular. However, some common symptoms could be-
- Fatigue and fever
- Pain in the joints, stiffness and swelling
- Ring-shaped facial rash
- Skin lesions on exposure to the sun
- Chest pain and shortness of breath
What else can lupus lead to?
Several complications may arise if lupus is left untreated. Some of them are-
- Kidney damage and failure
- Hallucination, seizures, strokes and several other problems associated with the brain and the central nervous system
- Anemia, blood clotting, vasculitis etc.
- Increased susceptibility to pneumonia
- Increased risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases
Lupus is a significantly dangerous disease and medical help should be immediately sought if you think that you have symptoms associated with it. Treatment depends on the signs and symptoms of individual patients.
