Q I’m a 17-year-old girl with se­vere acne and pim­ples on my face. I’ve tried sev­eral house­hold reme­dies but noth­ing has helped. Acne and pim­ples are the same af­flic­tion. Acne can present it­self as ex­ces­sive oili­ness of face as se­b­or­rhoea, white­heads, black­heads, deep-seated

Ami­cro­cys­tic le­sions, pim­ples, pus­tu­lar le­sions, etc.

Acne most com­monly af­fects the face, and both gen­ders equally and up to 70 per cent of teenagers get af­fected in vari­able de­grees. I think you haven’t yet se­ri­ously at­tempted to treat your acne. If left un­treated or poorly treated – as per­haps is true in your case – the suf­ferer is most likely ex­pected to get pit­ted scars, el­e­vated scars, and acne-in­duced post-in­flam­ma­tory hy­per pig­men­ta­tion.

All these con­di­tions pose se­ri­ous treat­ment chal­lenges to der­ma­tol­o­gists. There­fore, it is highly ad­vis­able to treat your acne right away to avoid it from wors­en­ing and also pre­vent all the above men­tioned post-acne skin is­sues.

Please visit an ex­pe­ri­enced der­ma­tol­o­gist at the ear­li­est.
