Acne is a skin condition that shows up as pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. It occurs when the pores get clogged with oil and dead skin, and bacteria build up. It most commonly occurs on the face, neck, and upper body.
Acne commonly starts in adolescence and can continue into adulthood. Some common regimens may help prevent it from occurring. Washing the face, no more than twice a day, with lukewarm water and a mild soap or cleanser will help. Do not scrub your face when cleansing. This can make the acne worse and damage the skin. Do not pick or squeeze any pimples, this may lead to permanent scarring. Use non oil based or “non comedogenic” topicals especially when it comes to make up. Wash hair daily and keep it away from the face, neck, and shoulders by wearing it up or placing back with a hair tie.
Most patients ask if the diet has anything to do with the appearance of acne. From medical research, there is no definite correlation, but a possibility that high milk consumption may lead to it. However, further research is still pending.
Treatment may vary from topicals to pills, including antibiotics, retinoids, and birth control. Please consult with your healthcare provider to find out what is the best treatment for you today.
Dermatitis is a skin condition that occurs after contact with something the skin is irritated by or even allergic to. The immune system seems to attack the body when it is exposed to the irritant. The irritants can be found in soaps or cleansers. Others can be in perfumes, medications, latex rubber, hair dyes or hair straighteners, cosmetics, citrus fruit, metal in jewelry, and plants as in poison oak or poison ivy.
Symptoms of dermatitis may include:
- Blistering, oozing, or crusting of the skin
- Redness or erythema
- Swelling or edema
Dermatitis is not contagious, you can not spread it to others. Basic steps to help in treatment is to get rid of the possible irritant. Make a note of any changes that might have occurred in your environment or any new products. Based on your symptoms topicals or oral medications may be used as treatment.
Always avoid scratching the area of the rash. Dermatitis may easily become infected from scratching due to bacteria under the nails getting in through any break in the skin. Please consult a healthcare provider today to determine if your rash is dermatitis and what is the best treatment your rash needs.
