Few Facts About Body Acne

Acne is a disease of sebaceous glands due to chronic inflammation which cause skin eruption, redness, and pustule. Acne is most common among people who have oily type of skin. People with dry type of skin do not generally suffer from acne and if they do suffer, the acne among people with dry type of skin is of milder type.

The most common site where acne occurs is the face. But acne can occur in any parts of the body where there is pilosebaceous gland in the skin such as trunk, scalp and limbs. Acne occurring in the trunk is called body acne or trunk acne. The only parts of the body where acne does not occur are palms and soles as these parts of the body do not contain any pilosebaceous glands.

Acne occurring in any parts of the body should be treated if they are bothersome. Always treat acne adequately with full duration of the course. The treatment of acne should consist of treating acne internally with appropriate antibiotics (may be required to apply locally over the affected parts as well as taking antibiotics orally), clear acne externally (such as removing dead cells of skin and reducing sebum production) and also to prevent acne from developing again after treatment.

Treat acne aggressively if the acne is severe as severe form of acne will not show desired result if treated conservatively. Conservative or less aggressive treatment may be sufficient for mild and moderate form of acne.

Diet is an important part in the management of acne. Eating a healthy diet that contain lots of fiber, fruits with minerals and vitamins, especially vitamin E can help greatly in controlling and preventing acne.
