Acne Rosacea Medicine


What Is Acne?

Acne is a very common skin condition that causes pimples and spots, typically on the face, neck, back and shoulders. Acne usually occurs at puberty, when the sebaceous glands activate, but it can occur at any age.

Human skin has very tiny holes called pores. The pores are connected to oil glands through small sacs called follicles that produce and secrete oil. A small hair grows through every follicle. The liquid secreted by oil glands is called sebum.  Sebum is carried through the hair, out of the pores, to the surface of the skin. This process keeps your skin soft and lubricated. Acne develops when pores get clogged with bacteria, dirt, oil or dead skin cells

Some of the causes of acne are:

  • Overproduction of sebum.
  • Accumulation of dead skin cells in your pores.
  • Build-up of bacteria in your pores.

What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your skin. It may also produce small red pus-filled bumps. Rosacea is also called adult acne, as usually only adults are affected by this condition.

Symptoms of Rosacea may come and go. In most cases, symptoms flare up for a few weeks then fade gradually and then come back. If this condition is left untreated the redness and swelling may become severe and might become permanent.

Rosacea flare-ups are usually associated with some kind of trigger. Most commonly rosacea is triggered by sunlight or hairspray. In some people, it may flare up due to heat, alcohol, stress or spicy food.
