Is there a cure for acne?

 

What is acne?

Acne is one of the common skin condition found in both male and females. It is also seen in teenagers and adolescence. In this condition generally, your skin pores are clogged with dead skin and oils. This leads to excess sebaceous secretions & blockage of the sebaceous duct below the skin. Because of this excess oil & sebum gets trapped inside the skin. This sebum is a favorable environment for your acne bacteria to grow. This causes infection with Propionibacterium Acne, bacterial flora.

What happens if acne is not treated?

Acne is not just a simple problem. If not treated on time, it can turn out to be severe problems. If you are having normal hormonal changes. But also having a genetic history of acne, having acne-prone skin, then this hormone is having its end-organ sensitivity on sebaceous glands. This causes inflammation & leads to the formation of papules, pustules, Nodules, cysts on or below your skin. The acne can gradually heal on its own. This leads to the formation of acne scars, pigmentation on the skin. Acne scar is permanent structural damage to the skin, which causes textural damage on the skin. More the grade of acne, more severe is the acne scarring.
