Hi, thank you for contacting us.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concern about acne problem that you are having. We will try our best to help you.

For your information, acne can be cause by multifactorial causes such as:

  • 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.

However, this type of condition can also be caused by serious problems that might need further evaluation by a doctor including:

  • 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

You are greatly suggested to speak with our doctor via teleconsultation who can assess your symptoms and offer further advice.

We hope this answers your questions.

Have a nice day. Thank You
