Salam sejahtera,
Terima kasih atas soalan anda.

Berdasarkan pertanyaan anda di atas, saya memahami bahawa anda berasa bimbang tentang masalah anda. Saya akan cuba untuk membantu anda.

For your information, acne breakouts are caused by blocked pores which can be blocked by oil, dead skin, or a bacterial infection. They can be driven by several factors which includes:

  • Excess oil production on sebaceous glands or excessive consumption of oily food (fried in particular).
  • Clogged hair follicles by oil or dead skin.
  • Poor skin hygiene which cause bacterial infection
  • Hormonal factors: excessive secretion of androgens.

We suggest you to do the following tips :

  • Prevent eating fried food, refined sugars, and fast food.
  • Maintain good facial and general hygiene
  • Clean your bedsheets, towels and anything that comes in frequent contact with your face
  • Prevent spicy food
  • Stay hydrated and moisturize your face sufficiently.

If the acne does not heal, it requires follow-up examination to identify whether it is actually a problem of acne skin, or some other problems such as:

  • Foliculitis is an inflammation of the hair follicles
  • Dermatitis
  • Infectious diseases such as dengue fever, HIV, and chickenpox.
  • Allergic reactions to some drugs
  • Disease of the hair follicles is urticaria
  • Vasculitis

Oleh itu, saya menyarankan anda supaya merujuk kepada doktor untuk mendapat rawatan yang tepat. Anda boleh berhubung dengan doktor kami secara atas talian untuk mendapat maklumat serta rawatan yang lebih lanjut.

Saya berharap agar jawapan ini dapat membantu anda. Terima kasih.
