Acne & Problematic Skin

Acne is a common skin condition that is caused by a build-up of oil, dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria on the skin that clog the pores on the surface of the skin. This condition can be present on any part of the body, most notably the face, neck, chest, shoulder, and back. Acne can range from being mild to extremely severe and can appear in various forms across individuals.

Signs & Symptoms of Acne

  • Blackheads (closed clogged pores)
  • Whiteheads (open clogged pores)
  • Papules (Tender, small red bumps)
  • Pustules (as known as pimples, which are papules that contain pus-filled heads)
  • Nodules (Large, solid lumps beneath the surface of that skin that are painful to touch)
  • Cysts (Pus-filled lumps on the surface of theskin that are painful to touch)

Common causes of acne include:

  • Genetic factors - acne can sometimes run in families
  • Hormonal Activity - acne can occur as a result of changes or fluctuations in hormones in the body. This is common among adolescents during puberty and women during times like pregnancy, menstruation, and those suffering from a hormonal disorder called polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Acne can be diagnosed by a medical practitioner such as GP, by examining the affected areas to determine the cause, the severity of the acne, and the ideal treatments for you.
