Acne

It is a  common inflammatory skin disease that mainly  affects the face, neck, chest and upper back. it is caused by an interaction between hormones, bacteria and sebum produced by the comedones (pimples), pustiles (lesions  filled with pus) and occasionally CYSTS. This is possibly caused  by changing hormone levels.

Mild cases may be eased by washing  the face with a gentle toilet soap or by drying agents  such as benzoyl peroxide. Severe acne may need oral treatment  with antibiotics such as tetracycline or hormone therapy  such as Dianette, which also acts as a Contraceptive.

Very severe acne can be treated using a derivative of Vitamin A, called tretinoin or Retin A. This cream is applied in each night  and takes about  3 weeks  to be effective. An oral version called  Ro- accutane is very good against severe acne but carries serious risks  of foetal  abnormality during pregnancy.
