All There is to Know about Pimples

by Sonam S. Professional Writer

As understandable, this is a common universal phenomenon that pimples pose as one of the most inconvenient skin problems for people. People have tried every cosmetic and skincare product known to the human world to hide or heal their pimples, but it just keeps coming back. Apart from acute breakouts, there are people who have chronic outbursts of pimples all across their face. Know what actually pimples are and what causes them, and all about their treatment.

What actually is a pimple?

Pimple falls under the broader categorization of Acne, that also includes blackheads, whiteheads. Pimples, out of the other types of acne cause scarring of the affected parts of the skin. Pimples are occur when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oily by-products excreted by the skin. Pimples are most common among teenagers, although it affects people of all age-groups. Effective treatments are available, but pimples can be persistent. The pimples and bumps heal slowly, and when one begins to go away, others seem to crop up.

What causes Pimples?

Pimples are small red bumps with white pus in its centre that develop when blocked hair follicles become inflamed or infected with bacteria. Blockages and inflammation that develop deep inside hair follicles produce cyst-like lumps beneath the surface of your skin. Other pores in your skin, which are the openings of the sweat glands, aren't usually involved in acne. Four main factors that cause pimple outbreaks are—

· Excess oil production

· Hair follicles clogged by oil and dead skin cells

· Bacteria

· Excess activity of a type of hormone (androgens)

Treatment of Pimples

When over-the-counter drugstore products for pimples and popular natural remedies for treating pimples fail, it is to be understood that it is a matter to be taken to a professional dermatologist. Acne medications will help as they work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection or reducing inflammation — which helps prevent scarring. It can take many months or years for the pimples to clear up completely. The treatment regimen recommended by the dermatologist will depend on the individual’s age, the type and severity of skin affected by acne.
