Acne

Acne can be classified as mild, moderate or severe inflammatory acne and is based on lesion and whether nodules are present, or not.

Mild to moderate acne has papules, pustules and comedones, without any nodules present in the skin.

Severe acne has many papules, pustules, comedones and/or more than 5 nodules present in the skin. Cysts may also be present in these severe cases.

Severe acne may be more common in males and this kind of acne should be referred to a doctor Zama as scarring is inevitable.

Adequate stomach acid is essential for absorption of minerals such as zinc, magnesium, calcium, iron and folate which are fundamental for healthy skin.

Adequate stomach acid prevents dysbiosis (microbial imbalance – may be caused by antibiotic exposure, alcohol misuse or inappropriate diet)

Acne can persist for years; produce disfigurement and permanent scarring; and have significant psycho-social consequences, including diminished self-esteem, embarrassment, social withdrawal, depression, anxiety and unemployment.

Studies have confirmed that the Western diet in general, which is high in fats, refined carbohydrates and sugar, is conducive to acne.

Acne can also be caused by both environmental and genetic factors, but genetics seems to the predominate cause of the condition in most individuals.

An increase in the production of the male hormone testosterone which leads to the enlargement of the sebaceous glands in the skin and creates a contributing factor to acne formation.

Acne or acne-like lesions can also develop in response to various substances, including corticosteroids, lithium, and some psychotropic drugs. There are also other environmental causes such as exposure to tobacco smoke, coal tar derivatives and industrial oils which need to be steered clear of. Substances to also avoid include oils in aerosol sprays, as well as excessive washing or scrubbing of the skin.
