What-Is-AcneWhat Is Acne?

It’s a question we see asked and hear being asked a fair bit.

Acne is a very common skin condition especially among young teenagers. Acne is caused by a combination of increased sebum production, increased keratinisation of the sebaceous ducts, presence of bacterium and inflammation. It also believed that a genetic predisposition can also exist that causes acne, although there is little evidence to back this.

There are many other factors linked to the cause of acne as you will see detailed throughout the How To Get Rid Of Acne Spots website.

But one thing is certain, the acne itself is merely a symptom of something that is wrong inside the human body. Your body uses acne as an alarm mechanism which warns you that something needs attention and is not right internally, such as poor functioning digestive system, toxin build-up, hormonal imbalances, blood toxicity to name a few, which can all be dealt with naturally by cleansing and detoxing the body and making dietary food changes.

Mild acne is typically treated with locally active agents, whereas severe acne is treated with a combination of locally and orally active agents. Medicines for local use can be prescribed by a district nurse with special prescribe. The treatment effect can take up to 6-8 weeks for changes to be seen. In more severe cases, it’s typical for a patient to visit a skin specialist.

Acne mostly affects young people who are at a sensitive phase of their life, where appearance plays an important role during those years. It is not only a medical problem but also a social problem. In addition, to help with the medical treatment, district nurses or school nurses can help with the psychological support young people may need.
