Don’t ever pinch or pick at a pimple it will leave a scar. Wash your face regularly. Wear light oil free make up and be sure to remove it at night.
Bio oil is good to fade acne scars
What’s the quickest way to get rid of marks that acne leaves behind? And if I was to wait for the marks to disappear, how long would I prob be waiting?
How to Get Rid of Acne:
Application of Ice
This is an easy way to get rid of pimples overnight. You have to pack up some crushed ice in an aluminum foil in order to prevent them from getting melted quickly. Then put it inside a plastic bag and wrap up the pack with a thin towel. Now apply it over the pimples for 10 to 15 minutes. This will shrink the pores forcing the oil and dirt out of it. When the two main culprits are out, you can expect the pimple to clear up in no time.
You can get rid of pimples overnight using toothpaste. Many people find it highly beneficial for this purpose. Take some toothpaste on the tip of your finger and apply it on the pimple in such a way that the entire pimple is covered up with the toothpaste properly. Leave it on the pimple overnight. Next morning when you wash it off with warm water, you will be pleasantly surprised with the result. The trick is that the toothpaste absorb all the oil from the pimple and reduce its size so much that it becomes invisible. However, a toothpaste with gel content is not suitable for this treatment.
Baking soda is considered as one of the best home remedies for getting rid of pimples overnight. Prepare a thick paste using one cup of baking soda, 3 tablespoons of salt and some water. Rub this paste gently over the affected areas of your face making small circular motions. Leave it on the acne for few minutes and then wash your face with cool water. The exfoliant property of the salt removes the dead skin cells from the pores. The baking soda soften up the skin and restore the normal pH balance of the skin. As a result, the pimple clears up fast.
A simple egg mask can help you in getting rid of pimples from your face. Take one or two eggs as per your requirement. Break them and separate the white portion of the eggs from the yolk. It is the egg white that you need to apply as facial mask on your face. Keep it on the face overnight and then wash off with cold water.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is known for its healing and disinfecting properties. To apply it, start with washing the face thoroughly with an antibacterial soap. Pat dry with a towel and then taking a cotton ball apply apple cider vinegar evenly on the affected skin. Leave on for fifteen minutes before washing it off with cold water.
Clear Acne Scars Naturally:
Tea Tree Oil: This natural oil is also very effective to clear acne scars fast but make sure to purchase pure tea tree oil from a reliable source. This approach, that involves applying 2-3 drops of tea tree oil on the scar, has proven beneficial to clear the scars.
Honey: Usage of honey is yet another way to erase those unsightly marks. However, before you use this natural remedy, exfoliating the skin is very important. Use of exfoliating brush removes the dead cells that have accumulated on the scars. Applying honey after gentle exfoliation ensures successful removal of acne scars at the earliest.
So, after you gently exfoliate the affected area for around 2-3 minutes, take Manuka honey and spread it on the skin showing scars. Once, you have applied it properly, let it remain for 20 minutes. Then rinse your face using warm water and natural soap. Follow this skin care regimen for about a month and you will definitely notice healthy glowing skin free from acne scars.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E tops the list of nutrients when it comes to overall well-being of the skin. The nutrient protects the skin from the ravaging effects of free radicals. Hence, it is no surprising that topical use of vitamin E lotion can work wonders to eliminate acne scars. Application of vitamin E lotion twice daily that does not contain any mineral oil can definitely lead to substantial reduction of acne scars. Instead of lotion, one may use vitamin E oil and then leave it on the face for 15 minutes. You are then expected to wash your face with a mild cleanser.
Pureed Fruit: Pureed fruits like apple and pineapple are full of ascorbic acid, an important ingredient of many skin care products. Ascorbic acid has shown to be beneficial in lightening acne scars and improving the look of the skin. Gently rub the puree of pineapple or apple on the face. Allow it to settle and do not remove it for 15 minutes. You can then wash it off with warm water.
Lemon Juice: Daily application of fresh lemon juice (3-4 drops) on the acne scars can also help to clear this skin problem as early as possible. For severe acne scars, application of lemon juice may only lighten the scar, and might not remove it entirely.
Take care! Mama Bear
I don’t like using makeup to make my face look less red. I’m a 14 year old who has acne and i at least want the redness on my face to go down. I don’t really like store bought product like clean and clear or pro-active. So yeah any advice or answers?
Most of us will agree that bright red pimples on the cheeks are an unsightly sight, and need to be removed as soon as possible. In the natural course the redness subsides within two to three days. But most teenagers are not willing to wait this long. They want to reduce the redness of the pimple the same day. To do so, they often pinch the pimples. This only causes unnecessary irritation of the skin and aggravates acne and inflammation further.
A better way is to use home remedies to reduce the redness. One such remedy is the toothpaste. It has been used for generations as an effective means to reduce the redness. To get best results, you should apply a small quantity of toothpaste over the pimple, and leave it overnight. When you wash it off in the morning you will find that the swelling has gone down. The toothpaste also protects the accumulation of oils near the pimple and helps the pimples to heal faster. However, you should not use the gel form of the toothpaste for this purpose.
A gentle exfoliation pack also does the trick. It removes traces of oil, dirt and dead cells from the skin and tightens up the pores. If you have an oily skin then it is advisable to use a charcoal mask.
Freshly extracted cucumber or tomato juice is another natural remedy that tightens up the pores and cuts down the redness drastically. You should apply the juice evenly around the face and leave it on for around fifteen minutes before washing it with lukewarm water. Even a half cut tomato rubbed gently over the face produces the same effect as does apple cider vinegar, which works like an astringent. It dies the pimple and reduces the redness.
Another inexpensive method is to place an icepack over the pimple for a few minutes. However, while doing so you should not try to crush the pimple because this may break the pustule, and the pus will flow out. But when applied gently, the ice pack will reduce both the swelling and redness.
Bactericidal antibiotics and ointments can also be used for reducing redness. You can also make use of benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid preparations for this purpose. Many doctors advise against the excessive use of salicylic acid since there are many side effects associated with it.
However, if you suffer from persistent acne outbreaks then it is advisable to consult a dermatologist.
These are safe as well as quite easy on your pocket.
Resist the urge to attack when these plugged sebaceous glands pop up. In other words, don’t pop your pimples, this can cause infections and even scarring.
Keep in mind that a combination of hormonal activity, a buildup of bacteria and the shedding of dead skin cells causes pimples. Do what you can to prevent a breakout by establishing a skin-care routine appropriate for your skin type.
Have patience. It could take up to one month for a blemish to disappear completely. The less you poke at it, the better.
Buy an antibacterial, oil-free concealer that can blend the redness of the pimple into your own skin color. Green shades tend to offset redness the best. (This might not be an option for those who don’t wear makeup.)
Try a facial mud mask. This may shrink a pimple.
Realize that despite the happy teens in the commercials, “zit zapping” solutions, medications you apply directly to pimples, don’t do much more than dry out the top layer of skin covering the pimples. These medications don’t provide a long-term cure.
If you are going to break the rules by “extracting the blemish,” aesthetician-speak for popping your pimple, wash your hands, then lightly squeeze the top of the pimple with a tissue or cotton swab. Clean the area thoroughly when you’re done. If nothing happens, leave the pimple alone until it’s ready to pop.
Apply a benzol peroxide acne medication to the pimple and avoid applying medication to the surrounding area.
Instructions: Crush a clove of garlic and rub juice on effected area. Fresh garlic will kill the bacteria and your pimples will disappear with regular applications. Also try eating a clove or two of raw garlic.
Ingredients: Calamine Lotion
Instructions: Cleanse your face with astringent before bed, apply a thick layer of Calamine lotion to pimple area and rinse off in the morning.
Ingredients: Egg whites
Instructions: Place egg whites all over your face like a mask. Let it dry, and rinse with warm water. Repeat daily until pimples are gone. This remedy will keep your face pimple free.
Instructions: Apply toothpaste to affected areas (not gel), before bed. Wash off in the morning. This home remedy for pimples really works, with quick results!
Ingredients: Olive Oil, Salt
Instructions: Mix three tablespoons of salt with four tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl or container. Put the mixture in a washcloth or on your fingers and scrub in face. Works

School starts tomorrow and while i don’t need a miracle in a day, I just want to know how to clear it up in the fastest amount of time. So what is the best treatment to get rid of acne?
You never get rid of acne, you can keep the flare ups at bay. You need to stick with a specific skin care line (neutrogena for example). And also, keep in mind that some acne needs the treatment of a dermatologist, that is determined once your skin care line of choice fails to control your acne.

Apply lavender oil directly on the areas of acne or add a couple of drops of lavender oil to a plain cream sold at a drug store and use as a moisturizer or cleanser.

I have alot of acne pigment marks on my face. I’m thinking of going for some facial treatment to help remove those pigmented scars. Can anyone recommend me what type of treatment to go for from experience? I heard micro debrasion may be used to help remove those pigmentation but does that work effectively or how many treatments must i take before i see clear results?
If micro dermabrasion is the way to go.. then how long usually do i have to wait between treatments?
Try apple cider vinager. Its cheap effective and all natural. Check it out.
How do I get rid of serious Acne/Marks on my face?
I’ve tried multiple things. But non have worked.
Is there something I have to do to make them go away faster?
Things to stay away from?
Dont put oil on your face unless you happen to be forty too. You should see your doctor for some differin gel and/or clindamycin topical solution or benzaclyn cream. The latter two are just two
topical disinfectants (there are other ones) that will kill the acne bacteria on your face and they are better formulated than drugstore products (if you dislike BP you’ll get clindamycin topical solution).
Differin gel is a synthetic retin, so like Retin A, it is capable of speeding up your skin shedding cycle and keeping your pores clear of clogs (also helps with red marks, acne scars, and wrinkles). It’s weaker than retin a so its not so harsh and it also has some sort of antimicrobial action to it so its basically everything you’d want in an acne treatmen.
ALSO: all of the effective treatments for acne make you break out worse and you usually have to use them for at least a month before you start to see real improvement. Spot treating btw, is not effective because all of that acne on your face took weeks to form (its too late to stop what’s already formed) so the best way tor treat acne it to prevent it from forming (you cannot do that with face washes). This could be a big reason why nothing has worked for you.
If you have painful inflamatory acne then you should really consider going on antibiotics, birth control, or even accutane if none of the other treatments work for you b/c this sort of acne needs more than topical treatments to keep it under control, and you definitely need to keel it under control otherwise it can scar you. Changing your diet also helps this sort of acne (food doesn’t cause it but it can inflame it and make it worse). Usually people’s acne is aggravated by dairy, sugar, processed or fatty foods etc.
If you dont have insurance then go to Acne.org–in fact go to acne.org regardless cause everything you want to know about acne is on that site.
I have acne marks all over my back and shoulders they are flat but brown in color. The acne is under control now. I’m afraid to take my shirt off, would never go swimming in a pool, and it sucks because I’m athletic. I really want to do microdermabrasion, however I do not know how effective it really is.
Try putting toothpaste (paste, NOT gel) on your face, cover it with a bandage, and keep it on all night. When you wash it off in the morning your acne will look better. The astringent and surfactant nature of the toothpaste will help diminish the appearance of pimples. But the toothpaste has been known to burn sensitive skin of the face, so be careful. If your face does burn, stop acne treatments and work on healing your burn.
Try using Bentonite Clay, a natural mineral powder which has been known to absorb impurities and help neutralise the skin’s oiliness, and can be found online. Mix 2 tablespoons with a dash of cold water and smooth over the face as a thick paste. Once dried gently wipe off with a flannel or sponge.
Another way to zap pimples is shaving cream. Apply it to your pimple and it will dry it up. It disappears by morning, but washes your face after waking up. If nothing is working for you, drink four tablespoons of apple cider vinegar diluted with water daily. It works very well for some people and is worth a try. Another good solution is aloe Vera gel fresh from the plant, taken orally.
Best of Luck….

I am 23 years old and started getting acne around 21 years old but it wasn’t as bad. It started getting worse as the months went by. It got soooo bad to the point were last October (my wedding day:( I had to keep a Kleenex with me because the pustulates would burst in the middle of the ceremony(pretty much all the time at any time by that point) I attempted suicide due to this complex and problem bc of the severe depression that accompanied it.
I believe the medication risperadal which messed my body up big time (gained weight, stopped menstral cycle completely, water retention, the beginning of acne).
I tried every topical medication u can think of from proactive, clearsil, neutragina (basically ALL drugstore treatments), dieting, exersizing, herbs teas, natural remedies (honey, apple cider vinagar, oatmeal stuff) nada. I did my research and realised it’s a hormonal problem so I went to obgyn and got birth control (ortho tricyclin lo) and it completely took all the acne away which was awesome and although it was a higher dose of hormones then the regular ortho tricyclin it did make me bitchy and sometimes crazy but that was the price I had to pay (more so my family) to not have that disgusting face.
I got off of all medications including birth control to go all natural and detox my bOdy so I can try to get pregnant (my husband and I FINALLY got out of our rough patch financially and emotionally, we have a beautiful home, stable careers, and our daughter is BEGGING for siblings she’s almost 5) so I want to get healthy to conceive.
However, now that I’m off the bc, the acne is coming back in full force. I read that accutane kills the acne and regulates or something the sebaceous glands from over producing oil.
My question is, if I go on te accutane therapy and finish it, will the acne go away and will the problem stop for good? And will I later be able to become pregnant? Anyone have experience with this??? Your feedback would be appreciated. Thank you all
Accutane is serious business. If your acne can be cleared with Ortho Tri-cyclen Lo, you most likely don’t need something as extreme as Accutane. It tends to have pretty adverse effects for people who don’t have bad enough acne to take it. Another internal prescription might work.
Accutane is actually supposed to be a last resort for people who have tried every other prescription first without success. I would run away from any dermatologist who wanted to prescribe Accutane without trying several other internal prescriptions first.
Accutane usually cures patients for good after the first treatment. But if you have very severe or genetic acne, it can come back after awhile & you will have to do another treatment. It’s not uncommon for Accutane patients to go through 2 or 3 treatments. But for those who need it, it can be a miracle cure.
It does not “regulate” sebum production. It almost completely stops it. It basically depletes your entire body of any moisture at all. It dries you out like the Sahara – your skin, your hair/scalp, your eyes, your bones, your muscles, joints, cartilege, organs, absolutely everything. It also turns your face red & thins your skin out like tissue paper so you have to completely avoid sun exposure. It also drastically slows your body’s healing abilities so even a scratch can take months to go away.
Like I said, it’s serious business. Definitely not for the faint of heart.
You must use 2 effective forms of birth control while taking it also because it causes severe birth defects. Usually they will put you back on the pill (probably Ortho Tri-cyclen since that works for you) and the other form is up to you. You must also register in the iPledge system where you will confirm your 2 types of birth control and fill out a questionnaire each month before your Accutane prescription can be refilled.
You must also get monthly pregnancy tests at the dermatologist’s office, and monthly blood tests at a clinic so they can monitor your vital organs & make sure they’re still working properly.
Also, Accutane is insanely expensive if you don’t have health insurance.
You will be able to get pregnant about a month or so after your treatment stops. You must take birth control for 1 month after stopping Accutane, and have another pregnancy test. After that, you’re free to do whatever you want, but I would recommend waiting several months before you try to get pregnant. It can take up to 12 months for Accutane to completely filter out of your system.
My mom is putting off the dermatoligest for some time now and i RELE want to go. she says tat she’ll take me some time after school starts. So in the meantime, does any1 know of any effective acne products that aren’t perscirbed?
It depends on how bad your acne is.
If you have mild acne- Clearisil. [Did I spell that right?] Lol. It doesn’t work great for moderate acne but for mild ance it is very good. My friend tried that and LOVED IT!!!!!!
For mild-moderate acne buy the mary-kay acne products. They work really well- my sister uses them and has very nice skin. I would recomend them!!!!
For moderate acne I would highly recommend the clean & clear acne kit or w/e it’s called. It is stronger than Clearisil- so will fight breakouts better. It comes with 3 treatments that work together fabulously to prevent and treat your acne. The smallest tube is the best- it practically clears up acne overnight!
IF YOUR ACNE IS WORSE THAN MODERATE TELL YOUR MOM IT WOULD DEFINITLY BE FOR THE BEST IF SHE LET YOU SEE THE DERMETOLIGIST- IT REALLY ISN’T THAT EXPENSIVE IF YOU HAVE INSURANCE….
For moderate-severe acne- I am sorry but you might have to see a dermetologist. I’d see if he or she could subscribe DIFFERIN. I have only heard positive reviews of it.
If your acne is severe: Ask your dermetologist about Isotretioin[Accutane]. It supposivily works great. But, it has SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many serious side effects. For example- stroke, depression, etc. It will give you a serious breakout the first two weeks- but only because it is getting out everything under your skin. One session can last about 6 months. You can NOT get pregnant while on this pill for it causes seious birth defects. This is only for very severe acne[and partcially rosacea] so if your acne is only moderate don’t do it. You lips will be chapped and your nose will be so dry it will bleed. It is also quite expensive.
Whatever you do- DO NOT use zeno. It is extremly expensive for a device that only cures acne slightly and does not prevent it AT ALL.
And say NO to proactiv. IT DOES NOT WORK FOR EVERYBODY! On the commercials they try to make it seem like a miracle- well NEWSFLASH its not. I def. Wouldn’t recommend it.
Well I hope I helped you and good luck! =]
I have bad acne and proative dose not work. nothing is. what do i do?
TREATMENT OF ACNE (Self-Care at Home)
1• Wash once or twice daily with soap and water to remove excess oil from the skin. An acne cleanser purchased over-the-counter in any drug store can also be helpful. Avoid scrubbing too abrasively because this can actually irritate the skin and cause acne to worsen.
2• Over-the-counter acne medications can be used either at bedtime or during the day. Always follow the directions on any acne product.
3• Many cover-up products are available without a prescription to improve the appearance of blemishes while they have a chance to heal. Most work well and should not worsen acne.
4• Some cosmetics and other skin care products, however, can cause acne to worsen. Look for make-up, cosmetics, and skin care products labeled with the word noncomedogenic. This means that it does not cause or worsen acne.
TREATMENT OF ACNE (Medical Treatment)
Many treatment options are available to treat all forms of acne. Medications are the main treatment for acne and usually work well. Several preparations are available over-the-counter, while others require a prescription from a doctor.
1• Over-the-counter medications: Nonprescription or over-the-counter medications for acne are plentiful and can be effective for milder forms of acne. They come in the form of soaps, washes, and cleansers.
…1.a. Many contain benzoyl peroxide, which does two things. First, benzoyl peroxide kills the acne-causing bacteria, which are thought to play a role in acne. Second, benzoyl peroxide can cause drying and flaking off of skin, which can help prevent the pores from becoming plugged. Plugged pores can develop into acne blemishes.
…1.b. Scrubbing excessively with any over-the-counter preparation can actually cause acne to worsen by additionally irritating the hair follicles.
2• Prescription medications: Doctors can prescribe medications when acne becomes moderate to severe or is not controlled by over-the-counter medications. Prescription drugs can be used effectively alone or in combination with other prescription and nonprescription medications.
…2.a. Antibiotics: Antibiotics can be effective in treating most inflammatory acne (papules and pustules). They work by killing the bacteria and also by decreasing the redness and swelling seen in the inflammatory forms of acne.
……2.a.i. Antibiotics may be applied to the skin in the form of gels and lotions, or by way of pills. We now know that using a combination of 2 medications together may be very effective in treating acne. Using a topical antibiotic with topical benzoyl peroxide, for example, may prevent bacterial resistance to the antibiotic. Giving an antibiotic by mouth is often needed for acne that is more extensive, red, and tender.
……2.a.ii. Antibiotics taken by mouth can be associated with more side effects than if applied to the skin and may interact with other medicines such as birth control pills. Sensitivity to the sun can result in a “bad sunburn” in some people who take the antibiotic tetracycline by mouth.
…2.b. Retinoids: Medicines made from vitamin A (retinoids) are useful in treating several types of acne lesions. Topical retinoids are effective in treating the noninflammatory types of acne (blackheads and whiteheads).
……2.b.i. Topical retinoids (applied directly to the skin) help to open clogged pores by creating a mild peeling effect. Drying of the skin can be a frequent side effect. Oral retinoids are reserved for treating the more extensive nodular type of acne or severe inflammatory acne, which has not responded to other treatments. Oral retinoids not only have a peeling effect but also decrease the production of oil.
……2.b.ii. They can also be associated with a number of serious side effects including birth defects in babies of women who become pregnant while taking the medicine. They can also cause elevated blood fats (triglycerides) and damage to the liver. Your doctor may recommend certain blood tests to check for these problems (and to make sure you are not pregnant) if you are given oral retinoids. Depression and suicidal thoughts have been reported while taking oral retinoids.
……2.b.iii. A combination preparation, known as Epiduo gel, containing both the retinoid adapalene and benzoyl peroxide, was approved by the U.S. FDA in December 2008. The once-daily prescription treatment was approved for use in patients 12 years of age and older.
…2.c. Other medications: A doctor may recommend other types of drugs or therapy to improve acne. For women, medications such as birth control pills or certain “water pills” may be helpful. These drugs counteract the acne-causing effect of male hormones. Newer treatments for acne include the use of light or zinc. Your doctor can advise you whether these types of acne therapy might be good for you.
Take Care. Regards.

So I have been struggling with back acne for a few months now and I’ve trying numerous products that’s supposed to treat back acne and nothing has worked! I am planning on trying proactiv soon, but I have a retreat coming up and there is going to be a lot of swimming. Which means wearing a swim suit, which means the acne need to go! And fast! What are some home remedies for acne?
Nutorgena body wash is good and get a some moisturizer and drink plenty of water
There are little acne bumps on my lower forehead and one small one between my eyebrows.
I’ve tried so many facial scrubs, washes, lotions, masks that suppository “treat” acne. Is there any good home remedies that clears acne? Or should I just drink a lot of water and lay off the sugar? I’ve read that plain oatmeal mixed with honey treats acne, but i’m not sure what type of oatmeal to use. Please help, thanks
Use a mild soap for sensitive skin but it doesn’t matter exactly what type of soap you use. It can be designed for acne-prone skin or not, but you will want to treat your skin gently. Harsh antibacterial soap may actually make your acne worse by irritating skin.
Remove dead skin cells regularly by exfoliating. Use a gentle scrub with natural defoliants like ground walnut shells, or use an over-the-counter chemical defoliant like salicylic acid or glycolic acid. Adding ground walnut shell to a thick moisturizer like cocoa butter can be effective too. Take caution, because over-exfoliating can actually increase the likelihood of acne by irritating the skin. Pat dry, rather than rubbing, since rubbing can cause irritation to the fresh skin you’ve just revealed.
Use a good toner. Spray onto face or wipe on with a cotton ball and wipe off with a clean, dry cotton ball. This gets rid of excess cleanser and tightens pores. Good, inexpensive choices include plain witch hazel for normal to dry skin, lemon juice, or 3% hydrogen peroxide for oily skin. 70% ethyl rubbing alcohol can also be used for severe oiliness, but it can really dry out your skin and irritate it more. Some toners are medicated, and this stage is the best for using a medicated product if you’re only going to use one medication.
Bacteria in pores is one cause of spots. Reduce the amount of bacteria by using toners containing anti-bacterial agents like alcohol, peroxide and benzalkonium chloride, and by using creams that contain benzoyl peroxide (ask your doctor about benzaclin, with moisturizer if you have dry skin, as it works better than just plain benzoyl because benzoyl takes up to 8 weeks before improvement is seen) which kill bacteria as well as cause the skin to regenerate faster.
ok so there is a party at my house in two days and i have two huge pimples on my face, and i dont know how to get rid of them fast. any home remedies to get rid of the pimple marks or the pimple itself?
All of these answers are really good, but I’m gonna have to go with the first answer on the this one.
To reduce the size in one night.. Boiling hot water on a rag usually does it for me.
I just run really hot water onto a rag and press it against my pimple. I do this for about 3 minutes. I’d do 5 minutes TOPS. This kills any bacteria that would be underneath the skin, and in the pimple.
And yes, it’ll leave your face pretty red but that goes way within 5 minutes so don’t worry about that.
Before hand though, you wanna wash your face. Take two cutips and squeeze your pimple together, THEN use the hot water on it. After that.. You can put acne medication on it, and a moisturizer then you’re good to go girl!
Good luck with your pimple! (I have a big one now and I’m about to do the exact same thing tonight)

What is gonorrhea?
Gonorrhea is a disease caused by bacteria called Neiserria gonorrhoeae, the gonococcus.
The bacteria that cause gonorrhea are found in the mucous areas of the body (the vagina,
penis, throat and rectum) and in semen or vaginal fluids. It is one of the most commonly
reported sexually transmitted diseases (STD) in the United States.
Who gets gonorrhea?
Any person who has sex can be infected with gonorrhea. Most often, gonorrhea is found
in younger people (ages 15 – 30)
who have multiple sex partners. Gonorrhea is reported
more frequently from urban areas than from rural areas.
What are the symptoms of gonorrhea?
Most men infected with gonorrhea will have burning while urinating and a yellowish
white discharge from the penis. Most women do not have symptoms. Those few women
with symptoms will have a discharge from the vagina and possibly some burning while
urinating. Women may also have abdominal pain or abnormal bleeding. Infections in the
throat and rectum cause few symptoms.
How soon do symptoms appear?
Symptoms may be noticed 2 to 7 days after having sex with an infected person, but it can
take as long as 30 days and often, there may be no symptoms, particularly in females.
How is gonorrhea diagnosed?
Gonorrhea is diagnosed through laboratory examination of penile or vaginal discharges to
see if bacteria are present. Specimens from the throat may also be examined.
How is gonorrhea spread?
Gonorrhea is spread through sexual contact. This includes penis to vagina, penis to
mouth, penis to rectum and mouth to vagina contact. Gonorrhea can also be spread from
mother to child during birth.
What is the treatment for gonorrhea?
Gonorrhea is treated with antibiotics in either injection (needle) or pill (by mouth) form.
All strains of gonorrhea are curable, but this disease is becoming more and more resistant
to many standard medications.
What happens if gonorrhea goes untreated?
Without treatment, there is a good chance that complications will develop from
gonorrhea infection. Women frequently develop pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), a
painful condition that occurs when the infection spreads throughout the reproductive
organs. PID can make women unable to have children or cause them to be at risk for
ectopic pregnancy. Men may suffer from swelling of the testicles and penis. Both sexes
may suffer from arthritis, skin problems and other organ infections caused by the spread
of gonorrhea within the body.
How can gonorrhea be prevented?
Not having sex is the only sure way to avoid getting gonorrhea or any other STD.
Otherwise, limiting the number of one’s sexual partners reduces the chance of being
exposed. Using condoms correctly with all partners will decrease the possibility of
becoming infected. If you think you are infected, avoid any sexual contact until you have
visited a doctor, hospital or STD clinic. If you are infected, notify your sex partners
immediately so they can be tested and treated.

I did some research and talked to my doctor to find the most common causes of acne.
• Hormones: The number one cause of acne is the production of sex hormones, known as androgen, that begins at puberty. This is why majority of acne sufferers are adolescents and teens. Hormones are responsible for then acne flare-ups during menstruation and pregnancy.
• When the sebaceous gland is stimulated by androgens, it produces extra sebum. In its journey up the follicle toward the surface, the sebum mixes with common skin bacteria and dead skin cells that have been shed from the lining of the follicle. While this process is normal, the presence of extra sebum in the follicle increases the chances of clogging — and acne.
• Stress: can also cause the production of hormones, such as cortisol, which can aggravate acne. Stress brings upon different hormone levels. With hormone changes the body prompts the skins oil glands to enlarge, secreting more oil. Which causes white heads, black heads and pimples.
• Oily or heavy make up: Heavy make-up clogs the pores and oily make-ups add more oil, which only adds to the problem if oily skin already exists. Cosmetics, especially certain moisturizers, foundations and pomades contain lanolin, petrolatum, vegetable oils, butyl stearate, lauryl alcohol and oleic acid.
• Certain medications and steroids: Vitamins are good for your body, But an excess of vitamins B1, B6 and B12 can cause acne flare-ups. These vitamins are good for the skin, but avoid overuse.
• Diets: For some people, a diet that is high in refined carbohydrates and sugars can actually aggravate their acne.
• Over abrasive cleansing: Harsh exfoliators can damage skin and spread infections.
• Picking and squeezing: This can actually send the infection deeper into the skin and can cause scarring.
• Environmental irritants: such as high humidity and pollution. High humidity actually causes swelling of skin. Pollution is of course is a big cause for clogging your pores.
• Genes: Family members who are also acne sufferers. Acne is inherited and severe cases known as cystic acne usually come from heredity.
What the skin needs is a product that clears pores and kills bacteria, thus preventing hair follicles from clogging and turning into acne. This is what you should be looking for if you want to get rid of those ugly acne.
Before trying any treatment, I suggest you read this informational source that listed the most effective acne treatments available:

I am 14 years old and I usually just get blackheads or whiteheads but all of a sudden I got a huge nodule on my nose. I heard that birth control helps get rid of acne and I am wondering if that is true and what types of acne it helps clear up. Can I be put on it when I’m only 14? And what are the side effects and how much is it? Thanks!
Buy yourself the soap and the cream of Vichy Normaderm.
They are very good sell them in samborns.
The cream costs less than $200 and the soap costs $60.
I believe me I use them and they are very good, and the better thing is that they are for teenagers, for whom there are other creams that are for persons mas adult and even they produce prejudices to the young skins for which they are very irritating.
This cream takes the sheen from you, it you dries the pimples and prepares that they work out different new thanks to a new technology that alone there have the Laboratories Vichy and Lancome.
The two are very good only that the creams are mas cheap in Vichy.
The equivalent of the cream that I recommend to you but of the laboratories Lancome it is called A Mash Focus and costs approximately $500. It finalizes you see that cost buys me $480.
If you investigate the ccompañíasque they do them, it is the same for that both Laboratories belong to Lo-real and in my oopiniónlas two creams have the same substance, alone that the cream Lancome comes mas concentrated in the active substance and therefore it works mas rapidly beside having a better presentation. It is to say that it is mas elegant and luxurious.
I’m 13 and I have minor breakouts on my forehead and chin, and every once in a while a painful big zit. I’ve tried all the generic brands but they just dry out my skin and make my skin feel weird. I’ve heard of the egg white mask….this could be a stupid question but couldn’t you get like e.coli from that? What are some natural ways to get rid of acne? I have dry skin by the way. Thanks so much!
Best advice: drink enough water and wash your face at night with a cleanser to rid your skin of dirt/oils/environmental ick
use a toner with salicylic acid in it just around those trouble zones… You are only 13 and you’ve got a few more years of raging hormones and bad skin (sorry, but dont’ worry, there’s light at the end of the tunnel!! LOL)
