ACNE: SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Signs of Acne

There is a common misunderstanding that to have acne is only to have pimples. To know a person with acne, any of these blemishes can be present:

  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Nodules
  • Cysts
  • Papules
  • Pustules called pimples by many.

Acne can be present on the chest, neck, back, shoulders, buttocks and upper arm.

Symptoms of Acne

Many blemishes that are caused by acne are listed above. The following are common in people with acne:

  • Permanent Scars: acne cysts and nodules which leave scars are common with people who have had acne. The scars tend to show after the acne has cleared. Seeing a dermatologist will help in the treatment of acne if you happen to get them early.
  • Dark spots on the skin: after acne heals, it usually leaves behind dark spots that may take some months to clear off.
  • Low self-esteem: some people that have acne say that it makes them feel bad about the way they look. Most of them tend to miss their school or work because of this problem, and this can cause a serious problem with their performances.
  • Depression: low self-esteem usually gives birth to depression and people that have acne-initiated low self-esteem may also develop this medical condition. This depression if severe, can make some people feel like committing suicide. Some researches show that some teens that had really bad acne were likely to consider committing suicide.

If you need a dermatologist to diagnose and treat any skin problem, call us on 020 71833648 or visit us at Clearskin London. We will look forward to seeing you!

OUR PATIENTS REVIEW

Quotes

ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didnít help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
