Hi and thank you for the question.

This answer is a general explanation of the problem you are facing. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors.

Get that perfect skin with the right skin care.

We understand your concerns about the acne problem you are facing. For your information, acne can arise because of the following factors ;

  • Family history
  • Smoking
  • Emotional stress

Then, it can develops into acne when the following problems occur :

  • Increase of sebum production (due to misuse of products)
  • Infection by bacteria ( lack of proper face washing and cleaning)
  • Hormonal problems such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (usually accompanied with menstrual problems and others)

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

Therefore, to identify the real cause and determine the best treatment of your problem that you are facing, we need more information and you need to undergo physical examination. In order to get a better diagnosis and conclusion of your problem, you are advised to see a doctor as soon as possible.
