Prevent Acne

Millions of Americans are plagued with the skin disorder
acne, and all are interested in finding ways to prevent acne
from affecting their skin and ways to treat current pimples,
lesions, and scarring. Acne is a skin disorder that results
from increased hormone levels in the body that catalyzes a
production and secretion of increased sebum, or oil through
the skin pores. Acne results when this sebum clogs the pore
and bacteria and dead skin cells from the skins surface
enter the pore. The result is red pimples and lesions on the
skins surface that causes embarrassment to all and scarring
and disfigurement to many. Because of this, everyone with
acne is interested in knowing exactly what causes the
lesions and pimples on their faces, backs, necks, and
shoulders.

Unfortunately, although doctors and researchers have been
working for a long time to pinpoint exactly what causes
acne, they have not been able to pinpoint an exact cause and
resulting treatment. However, they have uncovered that rise
in hormone levels affects the amount of sebum secreted
through pores and the way it ultimately interacts with the
skin on the surface. Although every individual experiences a
time of increased hormone levels, not all people develop
acne or the case is mild to severe.

There are many myths regarding acne and what causes it to
develop as well. One myth is that eating chocolate will give
you acne. This is completely untrue. Another is that greasy
foods will give you acne as well; also, untrue. Researchers
have found that food does not seem to affect whether
individuals develop acne or not. Stress is also blamed for
creating acne and blemishes; however it has no bearing on
your skin either. Basically, acne is a result of increased
hormones that affect the sebum gland that creates too much
sebum and clogs the pore, which leads to a pimple.

Also, acne is not reserved for individuals of a certain race
or age. In fact, anyone can develop acne despite their age
or race. However, typically younger individuals develop acne
because of the many changing hormones. Because of the many
case of acne in Americans, people are really interested in
how to treat it.

Generally, dermatologists treat acne in individuals and work
to clear up current acne, stop new pimples from developing,
treat any scars that might have developed and work to keep
acne to a minimum and the patient happy with their
appearance. The treatments include medicated creams to apply
to the affected areas several times a day as well as pills.
Sometimes doctors use a combination of the above to get the
desired affect of clear skin because different people react
differently to medications. If you have a problem with acne
make an appointment with your local dermatologist in order
to get the disorder under control as quickly as possible and
minimize scarring and/or disfigurement.
