Acne is created when the sebaceous glands (the oil glands in the skin) become blocked. This causes trapping of oil build ups within the gland and causes inflammation. This swelling within the oil gland sometimes become so intense and results in rupture of the oil gland, causing further inflammation.
Acne treatment will depend on the type of acne, whether you have a mild moderate or severe type of acne or whether inflammation or bacteria are present or not.
Mild Acne: Treatment for mild acne like whiteheads, blackheads and pimples may includes the following:
- Applying Salicylic Acid such as Propa pH or Stridex.
- Applying Benzoyl Peroxide such as Brevoxyl or Triaz
- Cleansing with warm water and mild soap
Moderate to Severe Acne: Treatments for Moderate to Severe Acne includes stronger medicines or a combination of therapies. In this kind of acne deeper blemishes, such as nodules and cysts, are more likely to leave scars. The treatment for moderate to severe acne includes the following:
- Applying antibiotic gels, creams, or lotions.
- Applying retinoids.
- Taking oral antibiotics and oral retinoids
