Subcutaneous acne: causes, how to get rid, treatment

“Oh, those awful pimples!” This phrase is often heard. Problematic skin is self-doubt, shyness, and sometimes reclusiveness. For some, this happens at a transitional age, some pour out when they ate something wrong, and some cannot get rid of this problem all their lives. In this article, we will talk about why acne appears on the skin, how you can get rid of them, and whether special treatment is needed.

Who is most at risk of falling into the number of “acne” people? People who are in transition, people who work with various chemicals. Even those who use oral contraceptives.

There are many causes of subcutaneous acne. But the most important thing is the incorrect or impaired function of the sebaceous glands.

Causes of Acne

  1. The process of secretion of the sebaceous glands is disturbed. This problem is the most common and is treated exclusively in medical institutions.
  2. Blockage of the ducts of the sebaceous glands. Mothers always told us not to cover acne with foundation, they were naturally right. The wrong choice of foundation, face cream, leads to clogging of the sebaceous glands and, as a result, acne appears.
  3. If your metabolism is disturbed, and you have clogged the sebaceous glands from above, then expect a lot of acne on your face, and in this case they are the most painful.
  4. Skin bacteria. Everyone has skin bacteria, but not everyone has them functioning properly. If the functions of bacteria are impaired, then acne cannot be avoided. Violation of the functions of skin bacteria can contribute to various citrus fruits (each individually), pollution of the skin, ultraviolet.
  5. If your hair grows inexorably fast, then acne cannot be avoided. The rapid formation of hair follicles contributes to the appearance of subcutaneous acne.
  6. If you squeeze blackheads yourself. Squeezing at home, we always introduce an infection under the skin. Tip – go to a good beautician who will take care of disinfection during this “pleasant” procedure.
  7. If you have stomach problems (gastritis, ulcers, some functions are impaired), then most likely you cannot avoid acne.
  8. If you have a weak immune system.
  9. Stones in the kidneys.
  10. Of course, everyone wants to be beautiful, and especially for the beach season, after the winter holidays, you need to put yourself in order. Choose your diets carefully. An incorrectly chosen diet leads to disappointing consequences.
  11. Stressful situations have never done anyone any good, so it’s safe to say that frequent stress is a direct path to acne.
  12. Smoking also negatively affects, in principle, the entire state of the body as a whole, but for some it is a direct catalyst for the appearance of acne.
  13. Dysfunction of the thyroid gland.
  14. Problems with the ovaries.
  15. We are what we eat. If we eat right, we will avoid many diseases, in particular, the appearance of subcutaneous acne.

How to deal with this disease?

Everyone chooses for himself what to go on the warpath with subcutaneous acne. But one thing is for sure, you need to be examined by a dermatologist. The dermatologist will take the necessary tests, and then he can refer you to such doctors as a gynecologist, endocrinologist, gastroenterologist.

If there are not so many acne, it’s one or two appear a month, then you can not sound the alarm, but get by with either modern cosmetics or folk methods.

Folk recipes for acne

  1. One folk method for quickly removing a pimple: at night, smear a cotton pad or cotton wool with ichthyol ointment and attach it to a patch to a pimple. During the night, all the pus from the pimple will break through and a wound will remain, which must be wiped with alcohol or something containing alcohol and re-attached the patch so that the wound heals.
