Treating Your Body Acne Successfully

generally about body acne

Acne, especially body acne is a painful and often embarrassing condition. For treatment to be successful you first have to determine what causes acne.

As with your face, the bodies has overactive, sebum producing glands as well as dead skin cells that mix and become trapped in the pores, clogging it with oil, skin, dirt and bacteria. This creates a proper blockage which in turns becomes blackheads and white heads. These heads, if left untreated develop into pimples, pustules, cysts and legions..

Just as with facial acne, the exact cause of body acne is unknown even after decades of medical research. However the factors having an impact on acne development have been determined. These factors include but are not limited to: hormone fluctuations during puberty, menstruation and even pregnancy, unhealthy diet, stress, genes, sweat and clothing.

Body acne occurs on the neck, shoulders, chest, back and upper arms. Mostly on the upper body areas. However the buttocks and upper legs can also be affected but is occurrence is rare. Body acne can be mere progression of facial acne. Back acne also known as bacne is the most common body acne. No one is exempted from the possibility of developing the condition as it affects new born's, teens, adults as well as men and woman. However back acne can be very severe in men.

Treatment; firstly, start with yourself as treatment. Change to a healthier diet that includes fresh fruit and vegetables. Work out a suitable exercise regime and think positively. Do not let the condition get you down. The more you feel stressed about it the more break-out's you will have. Talk to someone you trust and feel comfortable with, about it. You will hear that you are not alone and the condition is definitely not incurable

Highly effective medication is just a prescription away in the form of oral contraceptives, antibiotics both oral and topical, retinol, Isotretinoin, Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide and Alpha Hydroxy Acid such as lactic acid and glycol.

Take care not to overuse any treatment product in an attempt to quick-fix the problem. This can cause worse irritation, dryness and peeling. You can possibly do greater damage to your skin that the acne ever could. Give it time and be patient. Some medications take a while to work and for results to show.

If you suffer from acne in any shape or form, avoid scrubbing as well as use of backpacks and sports gear. Any friction in terms of rubbing and pressure, increases irritation which can worsen the condition. Tight clothing is also a big no-no as your skin needs to breath. The one person who knows your body best is you-think of any activities, food, events or chemicals that leads to or increases breakouts. If it is possible to avoid these culprits, please do. It will make life much easier for you and your body. In case of hereditary acne, you cannot do anything to stop it but effective treatments are available.
