What Is Acne

  • Acne, known as Acne Vulgaris, is one of the commonest dermatological complaints.
  • Acne is especially prevalent during puberty and young adulthood, although some people may still suffer from it into their middle years. Acne is known in the general population as "pimples."
  • Acne occurs when skin pores are blocked by excess sebum (natural oil produced by the skin) and by dead skin cells. As the sebum builds up, it causes inflammation of the surrounding skin. The lump that forms under the skin because of this blockage is called a comedo. A group of lumps is called comedones.
  • If not treated properly acne can lead to permanent scarring. Acne also has important psychological implications such as low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, especially in youths.    

What Is Anaemia

  • In Anaemia, lesser oxygen is carried around the body by red blood cells. Anemia can be of different types.

Symptoms Treated With FACECLIN AT GEL 15G

What Are The Symptoms Of Acne

  • Acne starts out as comedones. People with acne present with blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, pustules (commonly known as “pimples”) or nodules (lumps that form under the skin). Often people with acne suffer from an oily skin complexion.
  • Acne is classified as either inflammatory or non-inflammatory acne.
  • Comedones are non-inflammatory acne. They can either be closed (whiteheads) or open (blackheads). The color of a blackhead is not debris or an indication of bad skin hygiene, but melanin (the skin’s surface pigment).
  • Inflammatory acne occurs when bacteria invade the skin, causing papules or pustules (pimples). Nodules and cysts are also inflammatory lesions. Nodules are deeper skin lesions, while cysts are fluid-filled lumps. 
  • Acne usually presents in common areas of increased oil production such as the forehead, nose, chin, chest and upper back.
  • Acne can be classified as mild, moderate or severe, depending on the amount and type of lesions. 

What Are The Symptoms Of Anaemia

  • Common symptoms of anemia are tiredness, dizziness, and breathlessness.

Causes of diseases where FACECLIN AT GEL 15G is used

What Are The Causes Of Acne

  • Causes of acne are multifactorial. There are many myths surrounding causes and home remedies.
  • Genetics play the largest role (estimated in 80%) of acne cases.
  • Hormones, especially increased testosterone during puberty, play the second biggest role. Androgens increase the production of sebum by the skin’s oil glands as well as an increased production of cells found in the skin’s epidermis (top layer).
  • Hormonal changes during normal menstrual cycles, as well as pregnancy also play a role in women.
  • The bacteria, Propionibacterium Acnes, which is usually found on the skin, is another important role player. The areas of inflamed skin surrounding comedones make it easier for bacteria to accumulate and grow.
  • Although there are many myths surrounding diet in acne, there are few scientific conclusions around its actual role. Carbohydrates and milk products have shown some suggested links, but none are definitive.
  • Facial hygiene is important, but plays a small role, especially in severe acne.    

What Are The Causes Of Anaemia

  • Deficiency of nutrients like iron, folic acid, vitamin B 12, sickle cell anemia (a genetic blood disorder) or kidney disease can be amongst few causes of anemia.
  • The type of food you eat also affects the absorption of iron and folic acid.

Best Foods With FACECLIN AT GEL 15G

  • Acne is an inflammatory reaction, so following a diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables is important, as it contains antioxidants that help your body to fight inflammation.
  • Refined sugar causes your body’s insulin to spike. Insulin has been linked to increased sebum production in the skin’s sebaceous glands.
