Acne is known to be one of the most common disorders of the skin that distresses the lives of a growing number of people all over the planet nowadays. Acne is the scientific term for what is commonly known as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or nodules that occur on our face, chest, shoulders or upper back. There are many causes for this skin disease but it is ordinarily believed that acne is a result of an overproduction of sebum, which is a waxy material that lubricates the skin.

In order for them to live with this unpleasant malady, many acne sufferers respond to particular acne remedies. Acne remedies can be classified by by using the following categories: conventional, herbal, homeopathic, unclassified.

In terms of the conventional treatments for acne, it is interesting to note that a prescription drug called tretinonin, which is a derivative of vitamin A, is known to work by altering the maturation of the oil producing glands. Because of this, it can very often dry up the current zits and prevent others from forming. A side effect however,An unfortunate side effect for this type of conventional remedy for acne is that it can have an irritating burning or drying sensation associated with its use.

There are certain antibiotics that can be used to deal with inflamed acne and the prescription drug Accutane is one of them. Accutane is really one of the most potent conventional treatments for acne developed up until now and it can all but wipe out the ailment. Nevertheless, accutane is also the most risky conventional remedy for acne since the use of this drug might result in itching, muscle pain, headaches, hair loss and possibly even birth defects. Therefore, it should only be considered using as a last resort.

Herbal treatments for acne are purchasable in most local health outlets. Evening primrose oil is one of the best-known herbal treatments for acne available today. It is usually taken via three 500-milligram capsules per day for three months or until the acne clears up. Some experts suggest Echinacea, calendula, tea tree oil and goldenseal as other productive herbal treatments for acne that can help to eliminate or stop acne from forming.

Homeopathic treatments for acne are available in most towns and cities currently and many acne sufferers respond well to these types of treatment. Nevertheless, in cases of acute or severe acne, the guidance of a registered and qualified homeopathic practitioner is strongly recommended for safe and proper treatment.

If you are unlucky enough to suffer from itchy acne it is quite often suggested that taking Kali bromatum will help alleviate this galling condition. You can take it six times daily until you notice an improvement. Kali bromatum is one of the most highly recommended treatments for acne currently and many sufferers report great results.

One of the hottest and newest trends for people with acne currently is the acne blue light therapy. Much study and research has been conducted on this therapy and many have found that this new method of treating acne has a great deal of merit.

The primary purpose of acne blue light therapy is to annul the acne-causing bacteria. Blue light gets to the center of the bacteria responsible for causing the inflammation that pumps out miniscule molecules known as porphyrins. Numerous studies and findings have recorded that when these prophyrin are exposed to particular wavelengths of light, they emit free radicals that annul the bacteria. So, without the bacteria around to set off inflammation, the acne then clears up.

Acne blue light therapy is considered using to be 100 percent natural and non-invasive. It is also free from drugs and lacking any form of unfavorable side effects. Experts say that acne blue light therapy is safe for all ages and can be used daily in the home. There are, however, mild but temporary side effects such as dryness, swelling of the treated areas and pigment changes.

Generally, eight sessions are given over a a monthly timescale with each session lasting approximately 15 minutes. Most experts state that acne blue light therapy is more productive for inflammatory acne lesions and may not be suitable for sufferers who suffer from nodulocystic acne. This process does not utilize ultraviolet (UV) light which is known to have possible detrimental side effects.

In conclusion, there are a multitude of ways to prevent and to deal with acne. What works for one person might have no effect on another. The type of acne needs to be confirmed before an appropriate type of treatment can be tried. As always, it is best to consult a dermatologist or physician before trying any treatments for acne.

Understanding how to treat your Acne involves knowing which type of Acne may have. Acne has many variations, ranging in severity from mild to much more serious cases that can cause disfigurement. There are many treatments for acne available on the market, but it is very important to first identify your Acne type before choosing a treatment.

Acne Vulgaris

The most common form of Acne is named Acne Vulgaris. This type of acne can be easily identified by looking at the characteristics of the lesions.

- Whiteheads: When a pore becomes completely blocked by trapping sebum, dead skin cells, and bacteria, you will notice a white appearance on the surface. Whiteheads normally will disappear fast than blackheads on your skin. You should resist the temptation to pop these pimples

- Blackheads: When are pore is only partially blocked, the trapped sebum, bacteria and dead skin will have slowly drained to the surface of your skin. The black color is caused by your skins pigment and melanin reacting with oxygen. Blackheads will normally take longer to disappear than whiteheads. You should also resist the temptation to pop these pimples too.

- Pustules: You can identify a pustule by a red circle with a white or yellow center. The pustule will look similar to a whitehead with the difference being inflammation. Pustules are commonly referred to as Zits.

- Papules: The papule is a red, inflamed and tender bump on the skin with no visible head. You should not attempt to squeeze this lesion as you may cause or exacerbate scarring.

- Severe Acne Vulgaris: The sever types of Acne Vulgaris include Nodules and Cysts and will be quite painful. You should consult your dermatologist for treating these types of acne.

Acne Rosacea

Acne Rosacea may look very similar to Acne Vulgaris and often causes confusion. Millions of people are affected by Acne Rosacea, and it mostly strikes people over the age of 30. It will start to appear as a reddish rash on the cheeks, forehead, nose and/or chin. You may also notice small bumps, skin blemishes or pimples in the area. Blackheads are not a symptom of Rosacea. You should consult your dermatologist if you suspect you have Rosacea, because treatment is often very different.

There are other very serious forms of Acne such as Acne Conglobata, Acne Fulminans, Gram-Negative Folliculitis and Pyoderma Faciale. These forms of Acne are very rare, but they can be disfiguring, painful and have psychological effects.

It is always recommended that you consult with your dermatologist to confirm the type of Acne you have and the best treatments available. The above information should only be used as a reference, and only a trained dermatologist can accurately diagnose your Acne.
