Acne is a common disorder that can occur from childhood into adulthood. Acne that is moderate to severe creates painful nodules, scarring, and causes psychological stress among its sufferers.
Acne is caused by a combination of factors:
1. secretion of excess amounts of sebum (oil) from oil glands in the skin
2. clogging of the duct in the oil gland trapping sebum which becomes inflamed and swollen
3. infection due to bacteria in the duct.
Diligent, gentle skin care is essential in controlling these factors and preventing more severe outbreaks.
In some cases, good skin care is not enought. When the underlying problem is mostly excess sebum and mild clogging, topical creams and gels that are designed to unclog the duct are prescribed.
When infection is part of the problem, Wellivery prescribes topical or oral antibiotics aimed at the particular type of bacteria at fault.
When the sebum over-production is so severe that you develop deep, painful, scarring pimples, a special medicine that shuts down sebum production is ordered. This medication requires close monitoring with monthly reassessments.
Which type of acne you have and which of these factors are to blame for your acne varies.
At Wellivery, we will determine you acne type, your skin type, and then devise a treatment plan and a follow-up plan that is customized to your chemistry. And most importantly, Wellivery provides follow-up to make sure you are getting the results you want.
Some medications used in the treatment of acne are: topical tretinoin, adalpene, tazarotene, trifarotene, benzoyl peroxide, clindamycin, doxycycline, minocycline, erythromycin, salicylic acid, azelaic acid, dapsone, clascoterone, spironolactone (females), oral isotretinoin, and oral contraceptives (females)
