FaciaI Changes lndicating Serious Health lssues
Acne signs vary depending on the severity of your condition:
1– Whiteheads (closed plugged pores)
2– Blackheads (open plugged pores)
3– Small red, tender bumps (papules)
4- Pimples (pustules), which are papules with pus at their tips
5– Large, solid, painful lumps under the skin (nodules) 6– Painful, pus-filled lumps under the skin (cystic lesions) .Acne usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.
If self-care remedies don’t clear your acne, see your primary care doctor. He or she can prescribe stronger medications. If acne persists or is severe, you may want to seek medical treatment from a doctor who specializes in the skin (dermatologist or pediatric dermatologist). For many women, acne can persist for decades, with flares common a week before menstruation. This type of acne tends to clear up without treatment in women who use contraceptives.
In older adults, a sudden onset of severe acne may signal an underlying disease requiring medical attention.The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that some popular nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products can cause a serious reaction.
This type of reaction is quite rare, so don’t confuse it with any redness, irritation or itchiness that occurs in areas where you’ve applied medications or products. Seek emergency medical help if after using a skin product you experience: 1- Faintness 2- Difficulty breathing 3- Swelling of the eyes, face, lips or tongue 4- Tightness of the throat
