Learn about acne

What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that can show up as reddened bumps on the affected area. When skin pores are blocked by dead skin cells, bacteria and oil, acne can occur.

How common is acne?

Over 1.6 million Ghanaians struggle with acne every year.

What causes acne?

Skin glands produce oil known as sebum, to moisturize it. Pimples occur as a result of skin glands overproducing this sebum, as well as skin glands getting blocked by dead skin cells The pimple can also be further infected by a bacteria that grows normally on the skin, known as Cutibacterium Acnes, leading to worsening of the pimple Blockage of hair follicles and subsequent infection of the fluid by bacteria occurs with the use of heavy oil-based hair and skin products Excessive sebum production can be stimulated by hormones that are produced in high amounts during puberty, pregnancy, in people taking oral contraceptive pills or steroids for bodybuilding

What can I do to prevent acne?

Stick to a good skincare routine Clean your makeup before you go to bed Avoid heavy use of oil based products on your face

What are symptoms of acne?

There are different ways acne can show on the skin: Acne may start as a sudden appearance of bumpy rashes with areas of reddening especially on the face. It may also appear on the chest, back, and buttocks.  A single breakout of an acne is called a comedo. However several breakouts in the same area are called comedones Comedones are basically blocked skin pores with dead skin cells, bacteria and oil, that appear as bumps. They may have the colour of your skin, or appear dark (blackheads) or white (whiteheads)  These bumps can get infected with bacteria known as Cutibacterium acnes. When this happens, they become inflamed and painful as the body produces chemicals to fight the bacteria. These bumps are now called papules As the body continues to fight the bacteria, the dead bacteria and chemicals/antibodies produced collect as fluid within the bump. This fluid collection is known as pus. Acne rashes in this stage are referred to as Pustules Acne can also appear as large lumps that may be painful The acne can cause dark patches or spots on the skin, known as hyperpigmentation

What are treatments for acne?

Mild acne can be treated with over-the-counter creams and lotions for spot removal. These help to dry out existing acne and exfoliate the skin to prevent bacteria that causes acne from clogging the pores. More serious cases may require the help of a dermatologist to prescribe a remedy to reduce symptoms and prevent acne from becoming more severe, possibly leaving permanent scarring.
