medications that you can apply on your face.

1. Topical retinoid cream

2. Salicylic acid face wash


 I recommend a simple topical retinoid cream and a salicylic acid face wash to be applied twice daily.

 The night time application of any cream is more beneficial as it gives the cream more time and space to absorb deeply into your skin.


Retinoid cream :

  •  retinoids normalize the cell cycle of the keratinocytes and also do a host of other things that are beneficial for a person who has acne on the face.

  •  The most commonly used are adapalene in the concentration of 0.1 to 0.3%  which is applied twice daily on the face.

What are the Types of acne ? 

what are the types of acne ?

What is acne ?

  acne is a chronic skin condition that is formed when the pores of the skin are clogged with excess oil or sebum and dead skin cells.

 These clogged pores will often become infected and inflamed and may develop into any number of acne lesions.

 the pile of sebaceous unit the pile of sebaceous unit is composed of the hair follicle hair shaft and sebaceous glands a properly functioning pile of sebaceous unit does not cause pores to become clogged or inflamed.


types of acne

Acne lesions (blackhead) :

  •  blackheads are a form of comedones.  Comedones is the medical term for clogged pores.
  • blackheads are produced when sebum and dead skin cells are trapped in the pores of the skin.
  • it's important to note blackheads are not trapped dirt blackheads have an opening on the surface of the skin. when the clogged pore is exposed to air its contents become darker.


Acne lesions (Whitehead) :

  •   whiteheads are another type of comedones.
  • They are formed just like blackheads; they too  are trapped sebum and dead skin cells.
  •  However whiteheads do not have an opening on the surface of the skin.
  • therefore its color remains white. its contents isn't exposed to the air so it keeps its white color.


Acne lesions (papules) :

  • papules are small and round elevations formed on the skin.
  • they're hard to the touch and they can be tender.
  •  papules do not contain pus. they are caused by a break in the follicle wall that becomes inflamed.
  •   it is flesh colored with no visible contents.



Acne lesions (pustules) :


  • pustules are small raised bumps on the skin. they are about the same size as papules.However, pustules contain pus.
  •  Pustules are formed when there is a break in the follicle wall triggering an increase to white blood cells.
  •  The pus in the lesion is a mixture of dead white blood cells, skin cells and bacteria.
  • pustules look similar to whiteheads but they have a reddish ring at their base indicating inflammation.
  •  questions look similar to whiteheads but they have a reddish ring at their base indicating inflammation.


Acne lesions (nodules) :

  • nodules are similar to papules.
  •  they too are caused by a break in a follicular wall.
  • they are hard to the touch and can be tender.
  • The difference between a nodule and papule is nodules are bigger and penetrate deeper in the skin.
  • It looks similar to a papule. it's flesh colored but it is bigger in size.


Acne lesions (cysts) :


  • cysts are large painful lumps that contain pus.
  •  they form deeper than the skins layers.
  • cysts form when there is an infection at the site of inflammation.
  • it is large red and contains pus.


Acne lesions classification:

acne lesions can be classified as

1. comodo

2. null inflammatory

3. nodulocystic


  • blackheads and whiteheads are comodonail lesions.
  • Papules and  pustules are inflammatory lesions.
  •  nodules and cysts are nodulocystic lesions.



Please note nodulocystic lesions are considered to be severe inflammatory forms of acne.


 Currently there is not an universal scale for the severity of acne but here is a commonly used scale. This scale is based on the count of comodo, null inflammatory and nodulocystic  in total lesions.


 The three classifications are mild, moderate and severe.


1. mild acne:

  •   less than 20 comodo nail lesions.
  •  less than 15 inflammatory lesions.
  •  less than 2 nodulocystic lesions.
  •  less than 30 total lesions.


2. moderate acne:

  •  15 to 50 inflammatory lesions.
  •  3 to 4 nodulocystic lesions.
  •  30 to 125 total lesions.

How to manage acne: (prevention of acne )

how to mange acne at home

 for the management of PIMPLES.


Face hygiene :


face hygiene includes washing your face two to three times a day with a good salicylic acid containing face wash.

  depending upon the skin type using a particular moisturizer.

  washing your face in the night is particularly important as it cleanses your skin and then you

can apply a moisturizer and then the subsequent topical medications.

 After that you are not exposed to sunlight or any form of pollution so the medicines that you can apply on your face get ample amount of time to work in your skin.

 not touching your face with your hands as this transmits several pathogenic bacteria from your hands to your face.

  These tips are to be followed in all grades of acne.

 Grade 1 acne treatment :
stage 1 acne

  so most of the grade 1 acne you respond to this minimal treatment of simple facial hygiene and topical medications and show a good response within 2 weeks of treatment.

Grade 2 acne treatment :

stage two acne

 the treatment of grade 2 acne and if you remember grade 2 acne is when we start seeing whiteheads and onward blackheads.

in this also you can follow the same treatment we used for grade 1 acne.


 In addition to topical retinoids there are several topical medications that can be used in grade 2 acne.

these include


 1. BPO or  benzoyl peroxide

2. Topical antibiotics

3. Azelaic acid


BPO or benzoyl peroxide is a very good topical antibacterial agent that is effective against Propionibacterium acnes and other bacteria that cause infection in the pilo sebaceous unit.


 it is available in 2.5 to 10% formulations.


choose a good face wash that contains BPO and salicylic acid in a balanced combination that gives you the best result.


The combination of 0.1% adapalene and 2.5 % benzoyl peroxide provides much better and faster results as compared to the individual drugs alone.


Azelaic acid is a potent anti-inflammatory topical drug that you can apply.

 for acne I recommend 20% concentration which is the best.


 then there are several topical antimicrobial creams that are available but the most commonly used is topical clindamycin. it gives a good result.


Grade 3 acne  treatment :


stage 3 acne

if we look at grade 3  acne from here onwards things get serious.

 you have nodules on your face now and you have to start taking oral medications.


  The most commonly used drug worldwide are

1. Azithromycin

2. Doxycycline

3. Minocycline

4. Isotretinoin


Now which drug you should take depends upon a lot of factors that is why I'd simplified.

 I always recommend consulting your local practitioner or MD dermatology before taking any medicine.


Topical medicines:

now topical medicines are the same as that of the previous two benzoyl

peroxide in combination with salicylic acid.


Azelaic acid and retinoids like Adaplene  applied twice daily on your face.


Grade 4 acne treatment :

stage 3 acne

if you have grade 4 acne

 You need to consider taking oral isotretinoin this is the main drug for the treatment of these types of acne.

  and is usually started at 10 to 20 milligrams per day and gradually increased up to 40 Milligrams.

  In addition to isotretinoin you should also take oral antibiotics like tetracycline or macrolides like azithromycin.

  In grade 4 acne we also use intralesional corticosteroids which are basically using a very small syringe to inject steroids like tramps and alone directly into the acne cyst.

 Other treatment options for severe acne include oral dapsone, oral contraceptives for females and commodon extraction.

 So this was information on how to treat acne overnight.



 What are the Causes of Acne ?

what are the cause of acne


you might be in a state where you are getting pimples often and you really want to know what causes pimples.


You've tried everything you possibly could but your pimples never appear to stop forming on your face.


 well there are thousands of people with the same problem as you have now.

 it just seems like these pimples won't ever stop coming on your face pimples appear due to a certain cause and when treated correctly. they go very soon there are a few things that led to the growth of pimples on your face.


 If you know them you can understand what are the things you are doing wrong and what causes pimples but before I proceed further to tell you the causes of pimples.

What are the  causes of pimples?


1. Genetics:

 is considered to be one of the things that trigger pimple formation. your family history can make you understand how often you will get pimples.


2. the sebum oil: 

 The sebum oil that is produced on your skin can also lead to pimple growth. The dead skin cells which are shed from the follicle and the skin bacteria with the presence of sebum make a clog which can lead to the cause of a pimple.


3. Puberty:

Puberty  is the age when most of you guys will start to develop skin related problems. androgens are the hormones which our body produces. when you are in your puberty it's all part of your body's natural development stages due to these hormones a gland called sebaceous begins to charge all these changes at the puberty. age trigger skin problems flare-ups during the menstrual cycle and during pregnancy are also caused by androgens.


 4. Bacteria:

bacteria is always present on your skin. when a follicle is plugged multiple growth sub acne bacteria starts to happen. which in return creates a reaction near the surrounding skin and inflammation occurs in the follicle.


5. when bacteria comes in contact with an already existing pimple. It makes the pimple red and swollen and sometimes painful. this might happen when you try to pop a pimple with your fingers. the bacteria on your fingers may get into the pimple and might lead to the problem.



how acne form in skin

 If we look very closely at the skin surface we can see thousands of tiny openings called pores. 


These pores are the openings of follicles which are under the skin surface.


tiny glands continuously pump oil also known as sebum into the follicles. the oil travels up and onto the skin.


 The follicle is aligned with cells which produce a material called keratin. this keratin

joins the oil that is flowing through the follicle.


 bacteria can also be found in the follicles every hour of every day this mixture flows out of the pore openings as long as the pores remain open.


 Unfortunately pores can become clogged and start the acne process.


acne stage for formation

creams or makeup may block them but most importantly the pores can become clogged

by touching or rubbing with the hands.


 This can push dead skin cells down into the pore or cause a layer of skin to cover the pore.


when pores are blocked the oil and keratin that are being pumped into the follicle can't get out. pressure builds up and makes the follicle expand like a balloon being filled with water.


as the follicle gets larger and larger this stretches the follicle walls tiny holes can form through which bacteria and other contents in the follicle can leak out.


This attracts cells of inflammation which try to fix the problem. the cells lining the canal start to produce more keratin to shield themselves from the increasing stretch.


acne types for info

Unfortunately this additional keratin adds even more material to the canal as more and more oil and keratin build-up the follicle can actually burst causing much more inflammation.


This is the point where we see red bumps and pimples on the skin which we call acne.


 the expanded follicles can also rupture from outside pressure such as from leaning on hands or squeezing by fingers.


 yet another reason to avoid touching acne prone areas.


 so why does acne not typically start until around puberty.


 This is because before puberty the oil glands make very little oil so even if a pore becomes blocked not much pressure develops but starting in puberty hormones stimulate the oil glands to produce much more oil.


 Which makes a person more prone to acne because pressures in the follicle can build up quickly because of genetics. some people can produce five to ten times more oil than others.


 Unfortunately these people are more acne prone because there's so much material trying to get out of the small pore at the same time the follicle can expand and rupture even without an actual pore blockage.




 pimples are often to occur when you are at the age of puberty. even if you are done with puberty changes and yet if you are  getting pimples don't worry. it's all a part of what's happening inside the skin. still you can manage to keep your pimple away or make it go faster by taking necessary measures.
