Acne Vulgaris Chest

Acne Vulgaris

Jul 16, 2008 • By  • • 88 Views
There is a form of acne which is very common. This is Acne vulgaris also called common Acne of course because of its common nature. Teenagers are the greatest victims of this form of Acne. Any dermatologist would tell you that many of the cases they get are this particular form - Acne vulgaris.

Many teenagers who suufer from this condition also suffer from some loss of self confidence as they see the invasion of their bodies by these strangers. Acne vulgaris can be on the face, chest and back. While the chest and back can be covered, the face obviously can't be without raising questions. Combine the redness usually associated with the pimples and you get a very interesting picture that can discourage many a strong heart.

For many people not just teenagers, appearance is everything or at least very important. This simple fact makes this condition - Acne vulgaris seem such a great deal because its sufferers are always very concerned about its effect on them and this concern turns to worry and for some results in some form of depression as they see their chances of normal social activity reduced due to the perceived disfigurement caused by this condition. It is worsened by the fact that many of them do not know what to do about it or feel it is beyond their control.

Like most things in life, knowing the cause of a problem is a great help towards formulating a solution. This particular form of Acne is mostly caused by the fluctuating level of hormones in the body. As adolescents, going through puberty, lots of changes occur in the body and this changes are caused by certain hormone being secreted by the glands. This changes are quite rapid in nature and cause pimples to breakout on the skin.

This condition can also be cause by stress. The presence and persistence of stress an cause an outbreak. Acne caused by stress usually goes away when the stress is relieved.

Genes also play a role in having this condition. If ones parents suffered or are currently suffering from this condition, then chances are that their offspring might have to deal with the same condition.

Sometimes when the body reacts to drugs taken, it shows in the form of an outbreak of Acne. This is why the use of narcotics can result in an outbreak and why drug addicts will usually have pimples on their skin.

Dirt is another common cause. When the pores are clogged, it gives the bacteria the opportunity to thrive. However, in a bid to keep the skin clean and the pores unclogged we can cause more problems by over-washing. Over-washing can cause the skin to get irritated and as the body tries to counter the irritation, the situation can worsen. If your condition is caused by bacteria in the pores, you would need an antibiotic to tackle the bacteria at source.

In treating Acne vulgaria, dermatologist usually prescribe Topical bactericides. This teatment is applied directly on the skin ( face and any other affected part). It attempts to treat the condition from outside in. It would gradually try to cut down the bacteria at the pores and work inwards to get underneath. If you have a mild case, then this treatment might be sufficient. If however you have a more serious case, there are other treatments like Topical antibiotics and oral antibiotics. 

Take things easy and be rest assured that no matter the kind of Acne condition you have, there is a remedy.

Acne Vulgaris Cause Description and Illustration

Burdock Root, A Natural Acne Treatment: Part 2

Sep 28, 2008 • By  • • 227 Views
Acne displays itself on the face, back and neck. Acne doesn't start on the face, neck or back though. The basis of this begins inside the human body. Ultimately, the root source goes back to the pituitary gland, which produces hormones, which in turn release chemicals that effect others cells throughout the human body. Of such effected are the sebaceous glands.

Some areas controlled by the Pituitary Gland are:

1. Basic human growth
2. Blood Pressure
3. Functions of sex organs
4. Water regulation

Origin of Acne Condition

The basic problem of acne occurs within the Sebaceous glands where an oily substance called Sebum is secreted. Sebum is made up of fat and dead skin. Sebum is produced when the sebaceous glands break down and separate.

Sebaceous glands can be found in hair-covered areas and non-haired areas. These glands are found over most of our body with the exception of some places.The oil produced also lubricates the hair in order to prevent drying and damaging. Sebaceous glands open up to the hair follicle or to the pour of the skin itself.

Sebum, when at normal levels, is supposed to:

1. Protect skin from bacteria
2. Keep skin hydrated

What creates or trigggers the acne effect?

1. Increased Sebum levels by over active Sebaceous glands often referred to as seborrhoea.
2. Sebum and dead skin clog pores
3. Hormone inbalance - increases level of Sebum
4. Walls of hair follicles bursting

Types of Acne that can occur:

1. Acne Vulgaris
2. Acne Nodule cystic
4. Acne Whitehead and Blackhead(called Comedonal acne)
3. Acne Scarring

Use Burdock Root To Treat Acne

Active ingedients of the Burdock are arcigen, calcium, chlorogenic acid, essential oil, flavonoids, iron, inulin, lactone, mucilage, polyacetylenes, potassium, resin, tannin, and taraxosterol.

Lets look at Inulin:

1. Does not increase blood sugar, benefit to diabetes condition
2. soluble fiber - easy on colon
3. May help lower cholesterol and glucose

Polyacetylenes:

1. anti-inflammatory properties

Iron

1. Blood Builder

Again Burdock root is proven to purify the blood and remove the toxins out of it, as well as treat skin problems. One issue we deal with may be found in the liver not functioning properly in detoxifying the blood giving way to unhealthy skin. Not to mention the need for the digestive tract and kidney to function proper.

I found it amazing that when I felt good, I looked good. My body inwardly feels healthy. My digestive system is working as should. The reduction of toxins and the healthness of the skin has given way to a reduction in bacteria as well. I know that food has been disputed as a cause for acne but I encourage eveyone to look again as being a contributor.

I will suggest this. What happens if we feed the body too much of something it already produces naturally, causing an imbalance? Your body may produce more oil, secrete more sugars, naturally. What we eat may become triggers as the body finds ways of discarding things it cannot digest, and or treats as a toxin. This is just a theory in a way, as that I am not a doctor just an experienced acne individual. A great site to visit is listed here on Sebum. http://dermnetnz.org/acne/sebum.html
