Discover The Complications That Could Arise From Acne

Aug 17, 2007
If you think you have a problem because you have acne, you are right. But it is not half as bad as what you would be faced with if you developed complications from your acne condition. If that sounds complicated, it is more so because there are different kinds of acne.

So let us try to look at what happens when you develop complications from acne. Again, you cannot look at the problem broadly speaking, because complications will vary depending on the kind of acne you are referring to.

Complications from acne, a nasty muddle. Complications from acne vulgaris are mainly psychological. Because of the nature of acne vulgaris, it is very common for the condition to create more problems from this standpoint than merely the physical aspect. As a result, although the main objective of treatment is connected with removing the acne problem itself, it is just as important if not more to deal with the psychological effects of this condition.

If you are suffering from acne vulgaris, it is far easier to seek solutions for the physical symptoms or discomfort of your problem. However, psychological effects are more complex, as they affect your mood, your self esteem and your overall image of yourself, in company and in private. It is these psychological effects that require much more urgent attention. The physical problems caused by acne are much more superficial, although they certainly matter since they affect your appearance.

With acne rosacea, unfortunately it is women rather than men who suffer, but as far as complications are concerned, both men and women are equally susceptible to the effects of this condition on the eyes. This is also known as ocular rosacea.

Physical problems associated with acne. However, there are some aspects of acne that may be common. If you are suffering from acne, you may develop blackheads, whiteheads or cysts. The color of the blackhead is caused by a blend of excessive skin pigment, particles and debris. However it is not caused by dirt as you may have been thinking. All this matter combines with hardened sebum to produce what you see as a blackhead on the surface of the skin and which blocks your pores. Blackheads do not leave scars

Whiteheads and pustules are the most common form of lesions from acne. They do not turn black because they are not exposed to the atmosphere. Then there are the more deeply embedded cysts and pustules, which often appear red and swollen. In cysts of this kind, the pus that fills them is clearly visible.

Acne that is deeper is far more severe, more susceptible to irritation and painful to the touch. This kind of acne is the most difficult to treat. In this case also, the acne may consist of cysts and pustules. You may find these on the surface of the skin, but they may also occur deeper down. Deep acne is found more frequently in men and may leave permanent scars. This is partly because men do not consider seeking a doctor's advice as readily as women do.

Seek support to deal with your acne. All of this will tell you that it is better to seek advice from your doctor or dermatologist so that you can nip your acne problems in the bud. So do not try to take matters into your own hands, unless you are sure that what you are doing is right. Complications from any condition are far worse than the condition itself and acne is no exception.

Do spare yourself the additional heartache by treating your acne promptly so that there is no scope for complications to develop. Remember that you have everything to gain instead of struggling with a new set of problems as complications set in.
