Treatments For Acne Under The Skin

Sandra asks…

What are these lumps under my skin after acne cysts?

I had a few acne cysts on my forehead, which were really large and painful. Now the pain is gone and they aren’t huge, but there are these little lumps under the skin. They aren’t red and they don’t hurt. What are they? I want them to go away :(

Treatment of acne cysts

Prevention and treatment are sometimes interchangeable and for some person would mean one and the same thing. Prevention is a means of stopping you from complicated treatments. Once you prevent something from happening, there is no need to undertake treatment. On the verge of existing acne cysts while prevention could no longer help, treatment enters the scenario. Some of the treatments recommended are:

• Apply cream on the affected area. Creams containing benzoyl peroxide when applied to the area where the cysts thrive is one of the most effective treatments of acne cyst. This is a known antibacterial agent that can prevent and treat pimples. However, take note that benzoyl peroxides may have adverse effects when the dosage is not administered accordingly. Make sure that you apply it as per instruction of your dermatologist or as per package literature.

• Take antibiotics. This is an effective acne treatment as it acts in stopping the acne cyst from spreading. The best type of these antibiotics is isotretinoin which is considered as the proper solution to treating adult acne cyst. This should be taken on a daily basis in order to help stop the chances of bacterial growth in the area. This reduces the production of oil in the skin.

What is a good over-the-counter acne med, for those “under the skin” ones that never want to go to a head?

I never had acne as a teen, I am in my late 40′s now and this has started over the last year, usually always around my chin, occasionally by my nose. I havent changed products for cleansing or lotion or anything…. not even soap, so I can’t think of why this type is occuring. I did hear of something on tv about this type, under the skin, but I only caught a little of it. Did anyone else happen to see it? and what a good solution is? Ive used oil of olay for years, with never a problem. Ideas? any other ladys near this age get this? Ive tried the benzoil peroxide products like clearsil pads, etc, but they dont help this type. someone told me proactive helped this type, but I really hoped for something I didnt have to send off for. Thanks.
yes, this is a good point, I do take several medications, and that could be effecting toxins, but I dont have much choice on that. I thought I had seen something on tv about that type that are under the skin and something that worked well on them.

Hi let me first tell you to get rid of acne where your chin is (or any other part of your body you must first understand how you got. Acne is caused by bad bacteria clogging up the pores in the skin. This bacteria is usually caused by unhealthy eating habits which cause bad toxins to go through the body. Now you can if you want get laser treatment but that is very expensive from $1000 plus. But the best and natural way to get rid of acne quickly is by eaten right foods to get rid of bad toxins in body.


Lizzie asks…

HOW do I finally get rid of my deep under the skin pimples?

Ive had bad acne for as long as I can remember, and it only gets worse during my time of the month. I have the type of pimples that lay deep under the skin and NEVER go away. They do not hurt but they are very ugly and red and are mostly on my cheeks.
I have tried countless products, but none ever work. PLEASE help me! Home remedies would be nice as well as products that are known to work!
My pores are also visible on my cheeks and nose. What can I do to get rid of that?

Here are some tips that might be helpful:
1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon juice
3) Apple cider vinegar
4) Bamboo extract

Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. It is an essential oil that is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions.

How is tea tree oil believed to work? Tea tree oil contains a constituent called terpinen-4-ol that’s thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil’s anti-bacterial activity. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions is believed to kill Propionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria involved in acne.

Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. Will help with both acne, and scars as well.Also another way you can get rid of acne is by taking bamboo extract something I started when I had the problem really does work. Hope this works for you.

OR: Here are seven best methods to clear up blemishes.

Tea-Tree Oil
To treat mild, occasional breakouts.
How it works: Distilled from the leaves of an Australian shrub, tea-tree oil contains antibacterial and anti-microbial compounds called terpenoids that help kill the bacteria that, when trapped behind oil in a plugged pore, lead to acne breakouts. Try Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick ($8, A roller-ball tube makes for easy application.

Studies testing tea-tree oil against the gold-standard acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide, have shown that while the latter works more quickly, tea-tree oil is equally effective over time. And it results in fewer annoying side effects—namely, dryness and redness.

If you have sensitive skin.
How it works: A time-tested, gentle acne fighter, sulfur “acts like a sponge to draw oil out of blocked pores,”. This dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes.

Sulfur has a distinct smell—think rotten eggs. Most preparations that use it contain a masking fragrance. However, to play it safe (and avoid scaring off coworkers), apply these products at night.

Salicylic Acid
To treat and soothe red, inflamed blemishes.
Salicylic acid can have a calming, anti-inflammatory effect on pimples. “It also breaks down the ‘cement’ between cells in clogged pores to help unplug them,”

Salicylic acid is less irritating than more potent treatments, so it may be better for those with dry skin. It also tends to work well on stubborn blackheads.

Benzoyl Peroxide
To spot-treat a blemish fast.
How it works: This top acne treatment is an antibacterial agent, killing the bacteria that cause pimples to form, says Gross. Because benzoyl peroxide is so powerful, it helps blemishes go down quickly; just make sure to use a non-comedogenic moisturizer first to minimize dryness. Initially, it can cause dryness and redness. Also, “it bleaches towels and clothes,”.

Nightly to prevent breakouts.
How they work: Retinoids, which include over-the-counter retinol and prescription-strength Retin-A, reduce acne by altering the oil chemistry on the skin. “They help stop dense sebum from getting stuck within the pores,” says Gross. Without oil deposits, bacteria can’t grow and cause blemishes. Since retinoids can make skin sensitive to the sun, doctors recommend using them at night (and being diligent about wearing sunscreen during the day). To avoid irritation, apply every other evening to start, gradually working up to nightly use. Bonus benefit: Retinoids have been shown to increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making them a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.

Blue-Light Therapy
If you want the latest preventive treatment—and don’t mind plunking down some cash for it.
How it works: Once or twice a week, you use a handheld device to aim a beam of blue light onto your skin. “Its wavelength hits and kills acne-causing bacteria,” so any brewing pimples never come to the surface.

This method will not address existing blemishes. Doctors typically suggest combining blue-light therapy with other remedies, such as topical treatments. To make things easy, consider a blue-light device that comes in a kit. At-home devices are smart alternatives to multiple costly treatments at a doctor’s office.

Oral Antibiotics
If you experience painful bumps below the skin surface and your pimples leave lasting marks. “Oral antibiotics act from the inside to kill the bacteria that cause acne,” says Keri. They also reduce the inflammation associated with pimples, so deep-seated blemishes hurt less and leave fewer scars.

Doctors usually prescribe them to get a severe condition under control and may then switch to topical treatments. Some antibiotics must be taken on an empty stomach, so read the label carefully.
