Finding the best treatment for acne can be tough but you need to be very patient to find a system that will work for you best. In the meantime, it is important that you prevent further damage to your skin. You can do this by not squeezing and popping your pimples.
I have heard a lot of mild cases of acne that has gotten worse because of squeezing and picking. As a matter of fact it has become so common the medical experts coined a term to describe it. This condition is commonly known as excoriated acne. This condition is quite common among young teenagers that are stressed out with their skin condition. They want to relieve this by literally squeezing out the blemishes, blackheads and whiteheads included. Though they have a very mild case of acne, their face is constantly marred with re marks and sometimes cuts because of their squeezing,
Scratching the skin and squeezing blemishes is not healthy and should be given serious attention. Squeezing can lead to the formation of permanent scars and ulcerations. If you know someone who is experiencing from excoriated acne, it is important to call their attention and make sure that they get medical help. Dermatologist should not take this lightly as this condition do not just have physiological effects but can also have a psychological effect to the child. The skin care expert should then give that child some counseling and ways to relieve stress without squeezing their blemishes.
Aside from that dermatologist can also provide the right course of treatment for its patient. For mild cases of acne, using over the counter acne treatments is enough to get rid of the blackheads and whiteheads. There are a lot of over the counter acne treatments that works well for mild acne. The treatment kit should be able to contain a cleanser, a toner and a moisturizer. These are the basic treatments that you need to have when treating acne.
Dietary planning is also important to relieve the signs and symptoms of acne. Drinking plenty of water and making sure that you get at least 4 servings of fruits and vegetables daily is very important. When treating acne, it is best to avoid fried foods and milk or other dairy products. Processed sweets such as chocolates and candy bars should be eliminated from your diet. These food items are known to trigger acne blemishes.
