The right way of homoeopathic treatment.
Pimple or Acne is a small red pustule.In medical language, the pimple is called acne.
Pimples are chronic inflammatory disease of the sebaceous gland. The most common symptoms are oiliness and greasiness of skin.The pimples can be mild, with only a few lesions or moderately severe with great inflammatory or very severe, producing disfigurement of the skin.It may involve any hair bearing areas of the body, but the face, shoulders, back and chest are commonly involved probably because these areas have the maximum number of sebaceous glands.
There are various types of acne. The most common form is acne vulgaris.The condition is triggered by hormonal changes at puberty.With the onset of puberty, there is increase in the size of the sebaceous gland ,with concomitant increase in the amount of the sebum.
WHAT CAUSES PIMPLES ?
There are several reasons. Let’s look at them one by one.
CLOGGING OF PORES: When the sebaceous glands produce extra sebum, clogging may occur, leading to acne. If the sebum remains clogged in the follicle opening,it hardens and becomes dark, forming small plugs called blackheads. In some cases, hair follicles are sealed by an excess of keratin, the tough, fibrous protein that is produced by the skin cell.When this happens, the trapped sebum hardens into small white lumps, called white heads, under the surface of the skin.
Acne that starts at puberty is thought to be the result of oversensitivity to an androgen (male sex hormones), which are present in both boys and girls. Androgens cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge and increase their output of sebum
GENETIC FACTORS: Disposition to pimples is probably inherited in a large number of families.
CLIMATE: Increasing exposure to sunlight and over sweating usually increases the pimples.
AIR POLLUTION: Outdoor pollutants like car exhausts and industrial fumes or indoor pollution like dust and cigarette smoke can be the cause. When these pollutants get mixed with the oily layer on your skin, you may get new pimples.
STRESS: Acne may become worse in time of stress.It is quite common for students, especially girls to say that their pimples worsen just before and during examinations.
BAD EATING HABIT: It`s often said that bad eating habits can result in acne.It is commonly believed that certain foods may exacerbate acne. Choclates, nuts,fast food,
Cola drinks,fried foods,high fat and carbohydrates.

MAKEUP: Don’t forget to remove makeup with cleansers.
COSMETICS: Foundation creams, moisturizers, greasy oily cosmetics preparations definitely make the acne worse. The reason is very simple. In acne, patient skin is already very oily and greasy and the use of oily cosmetics will make it worse.
