Acne Vulgaris In Adults

MBBS, Diploma In Dermatology & Venerology & Leprosy (DDVL), DNB Dermatology
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
Acne Vulgaris In Adults

Acne vulgaris is a skin disease that causes pimples. It begins in the skin’s oil glands.

Oil travels onto the surface of the skin via a canal called the hair follicle. Pimples pop up when the hair, oil and cells in the follicle form a plug, which clogs the pore. This allows for the bacteria that normally live on the skin to grow and multiply in the clogged pore and when your body’s defense system attacks these bacteria, the area gets inflamed resulting in an unsightly pimple.

Most pimples are found on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders and just about anyone can get these zits. No one knows exactly what causes acne in adults. Contrary to what you may have heard, pimples are not caused by dirty skin, but dirt may aggravate acne and so does stress.

Types of acne

Acne can be two types:

  1. White heads - If the clogged follicle stays beneath the skin and you get a whitish zit, it’s called a white head.
  2. Black heads - If the plugged follicle reaches the skin surface, you get a blackish bump called a black head. The blackness is because the sebum or oil darkens on the skin’s surface due to exposure to air.

Who is susceptible?

  1. Anyone can get pimples, but people who are undergoing hormonal changes like adolescents and pregnant women are more susceptible. An increase in levels of certain hormones during puberty can cause the skin oil cells to enlarge and make more oil.
  2. Adult women become predisposed when they stop taking the contraceptive pill or begin taking it, as this causes a hormonal see-saw too.
  3. Studies suggest that you can also inherit a tendency to have acne. So genes play a role.
  4. Certain drugs can cause acne.
  5. Oily cosmetics can clog pores, leading to acne.

Prevention of Acne
There is no sure way to prevent acne, but try these measures to prevent severe breakouts –

  1. Wash your face often if you have oily skin.
  2. Try oil-free cosmetics. Choose products labeled ‘noncomedogenic’, which do not promote the formation of closed pores.
  3. Always wash after exercising because sweat can clog your skin pores and make your existing acne worse.
  4. Remember to wash your face and other areas prone to acne as soon as possible, especially after cooking hot, greasy food.
  5. If you use stuff like hair sprays or styling gels, make sure that you keep them away from your face as much as possible as these products contain oils that can make acne worse. Always try to use water-based products if you are prone to acne.
  6. If you get acne on your chest or back, avoid wearing tight clothes as these can rub against the acne and cause irritation.
  7. Never try to pop or squeeze a zit as this can push infected skin and pus deeper into your skin, which can lead to more swelling and redness.
  8. Wash hair often if you have an oily or dandruff-prone scalp.

Treatment of acne

  1. It usually takes time to find a product that works for your skin. Over-the-counter (OTC) products come in different strengths. The ingredient that works for most people is benzoyl peroxide. Another ingredient, salicylic acid, is also very effective as it helps to dry up pimples.
  2. It's best to seek a dermatologist's advice if you find OTC products aren't working for you. He or she will prescribe special gels, creams or pills to fight stubborn acne.

Hello lybrate-user the trick to not to keep the hair too oily or tol dry. When you shampoo your hair always remember to use a conditioner. Have lot of protein rich food. Include eggs and milk in your daily diet. Biotin and vitamins will help. Try this for a month. If it doesn't help. Try taking homoeopathic medicines.

Home remedies- 1. Mix equal quantities of saffron, turmeric, neem, red sandalwood, tulsi, and multani mitti with buttermilk or milk and make a paste of it. Apply twice a day. 2. Apply a paste of fresh fenugreek leaves and wash off with warm water before going to bed is good for removing scars of old pimples. 3. Apply a mixture of carrot juice and pineapple juice to skin twice a week. This also adds shine to your skin. Note: eat salad 1hr before lunch and 1hr before dinner. Minimise sugar consumption (especially chocolates, sweets, sugar in tea). Start using a herbal shampoo and kallonji oil. Avoid washing your face with soaps. Use fresh aloe vera twice a day. Cleanse your face with lemon peels. Increase intake of water to about 3-4litres per day, and take coconut water. Yogasanas- sarvangasana, vajrasana, shavasana, anulom-vilom pranayam. Do meditation.

I am using visora Capsules for Psoriasis problem, shall I add avipattikar churna for constipation?
Most cases of constipation aren't caused by a specific condition and it may be difficult to identify the exact cause. However, several factors can increase your chances of having constipation, including: not eating enough fibre, such as fruit, vegetables and cereals a change in your routine or lifestyle, such as a change in your eating habits having limited privacy when using the toilet ignoring the urge to pass stools immobility or lack of exercise not drinking enough fluids having a high temperature (fever) being underweight or overweight Try to modify your lifestyle instead of eating medication.

Lybrate-user in normal condition if you are loosing 10-50 hairs it could be normal. Because every hair strand grow, stay on your scalp &fall & again regrow. But if after loosing hair there is no regrowth then it will be the problem. If you have really hair loss then avoid smoking, stress, take healthy food, wash your hairs twice in a week. Use homoeopathic medicine arnica q+ jaborandi q+ ceanothusq +china q+ 250 ml coconut oil. Mix it. Apply twice in a week. Wiesbaden 200/ bd daily orally.

I am pimples pimples on my face what should I do to reduce them. Is there any natural remedies?

I am pimples pimples on my face what should I do to reduce them. Is there any natural remedies?
Dear lybrate user, pimples/ acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which develops due to blocking of the hair follicles in skin. These blockages occur due to 4 abnormal processes: 1) excess sebum production due to androgens 2) excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedone formation 3) infection of propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes) bacteria on the hair follicles 4) local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. In order to stop the formation of pimples the aforesaid four causes should be terminated. Now the bitter truth is neither can you stop the overproduction of androgen or keratin protein nor can you stop the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals because all these processes takes place internally in your skin. However you can stop the accumulation of p. Acnes bacteria on your skin by preventing your skin from getting oily. Always keep a handkerchief with you whenever you go outside. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink a lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation. You can also take homoeopathic calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach also you can apply homoeopathic mother tincture berberis aquifolium q on the dark spots on your skin which are produced after the resolution of the pimples.
