Cystic acne is a dermatological condition in which the skin pores get blocked causing infection and inflammation. Over secretion of sebum creates an optimal environment for the bacteria trapped in the pores to thrive; and the bacterium, Propionibacterium acnes is responsible for this condition.
This form of acne occurs when the infection occurs deep within the skin causing a painful, swollen, red bump filled with pus. It usually takes place during teens or the late 20's. An estimated, 80% of the people suffer from cystic acne between 11 and 30 years of age.
The primary reasons for cystic acne are:
- Hormonal changes pertaining to puberty, menstruation, pregnancy or birth control
- Greasy cosmetics, lotions, and soaps that cause allergy can also lead to this form of acne
- An inherited tendency for acne can also be a likely cause
Cystic acne tends to produce inflammatory cysts and nodules, which are visible and painful. In addition, they pose the danger of causing visible scarring and shallow depressions on the face.
Usual medicines, which are used to treat mild acne, have little effect on cystic acne, what you must do in this case:
- Use of oral antibiotics, which helps to keep the bacteria in check and also reduce inflammation
- Birth control pills are often effective treatment for regulating hormones in women
Some of the preventative measures would be:
- Not touching the cysts is advisable as it can lead the infection to spread
- Relaxation and adequate sleep are also recommended as stress causes the body to release more hormones which can worsen the condition
- Some studies indicate diet low in sugar also help to reduce the condition
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Age of my brother is 16 and from now his hair started whitening and falling why it happening is it normal or not.
Though most pimple patients remit spontaneously, for the ones that do not or are unresponsive to conventional therapy or have obvious cutaneous signs of hyperandrogenism,
Hormonal therapy is the next option in the therapeutic ladder. It is not strictly indicated for only those patients who have cutaneous or biochemical evidence of hyperandrogenism, but can be used even without any evidence of hyperandrogenism, for therapy-resistant pimple.
It can be prescribed as monotherapy, but when used in combination with other conventional therapies, it may prove to be more beneficial.
Hormonal evaluation is a prerequisite for hormonal therapy, to identify the cause behind hyperandrogenism, which may be ovarian or adrenal.

Occasional dryness of skin on any part of the body is not much of a problem. But chronically dry skin on the heels and feet can become problematic because it tends to ulcerate. In healthy people, the ulceration healed rather quickly due to good blood flow. But in seniors and especially in diabetics, the growth of new blood vessels and the repair of existing ones slows down quite a bit. So these chronically ulcerated heels crack further and attract bacteria, leading to infections. Diabetics are especially vulnerable to infections, thanks to chronically cracked heels.
Since cracked feet can be much more than just a cosmetic concern, it is important to manage them. Here are some tips on caring for cracked heels:
1: Make it a Habit: Cleaning, moisturizing and regular inspection of the feet is important. Regular moisturizing is a good cure for dry or cracked heels.
2: Soak Your Feet: At the end of the day, soak your feet in warm soapy water for about 15 minutes. Rinse feet and pat dry.
3: Make a healing mixture: Mix one teaspoon Vaseline and the juice of one lemon. Rub this mixture on cracked heels and other dry areas of the feet till it is thoroughly absorbed. The oils in this mixture will help to soften dry and cracked heels. You can then exfoliate more easily. Avoid harsh cosmetic exfoliating scrubs .Instead you can make your own gentle and natural scrub with honey, apple cider vinegar, and rice flour
• Grind 10-15gm of into a slightly coarse flour.
• Add a few spoons of raw honey along with apple cider vinegar to obtain a thick paste.
• If the cracks are very deep, you can add a spoon of olive oil or sweet almond oil.
• Soak your feet for 20 minutes in hot water or lime water and then massage them with this paste. The vinegar will help to dissolve the dead skin while the rice flour will gently slough off the top layer of dead skin. The honey and olive oil act as natural moisturizers and will help to keep the skin on your feet soft and moisturized and this will prevent further cracking.
4: Paraffin and Mustard Oil Remedy: Melt paraffin wax and mix it well with mustard oil. Apply on the cracked area. Rinse it off in the morning. You will probably want to wear a pair of socks to prevent it from making a mess. A continuous application for a week or two can achieve desirable results.
5: Plain Old Lemon Juice: Soak the feet in lemon juice for about 10 minutes. It is best to soak your feet in a lemon juice solution and then lightly scrub it with a loofah or apply the pulp of a ripe banana on the dry or cracked area of the heel. Lemon juice is a very mild natural acid and helps to dissolve dead and dry skin.
