Acne problem since 2 yrs
I have acne problem since 2 years. I get frequent breakouts on my face leaving marks. I can't get to the root of the problem. I follow a healthy lifestyle. I go to the gym(since 2012) regularly. Avoid junk , fried food. Salads and chicken/lamb are part of my meal everyday. I have fruits , eggs and milk for breakfast.I have minimum 2 litres of water everyday. I went to a dermatologist and did some hormonal tests. The tests did not show any irregularities. I was prescribed skin peeling treatment but I was not ready to go through it because I wanted to know the exact reason for the acne before going for it. Can you please help me how I should proceed for the treatment. Can Ayurveda help in my case? What possibly can be the reason for acne ?

Hi Treatment of acne vulgaris should be directed towards the known pathogenic factors, including follicular hyperproliferation, excess sebum, P acnes, and inflammation. The most appropriate treatment is based on the grade and severity of the acne. The following medications are used in the treatment of propionibacterium acne vulgaris:- Retinoid-like agents. Antibiotics. Selective aldosterone antagonist acne products. When a topical or systemic antibiotic is used, it should be used in conjunction with benzoyl peroxide or topical retinoid to reduce the emergence of resistance. Diet therapy, such as a low-glycemic diet and avoidance of “junk foods,” has been suggested as a nonpharmacologic measure to manage acne vulgaris Procedural treatments for acne vulgaris include the following- Manual extraction of comedones. Intralesional steroid injections. Superficial peels that use glycolic or salicylic acid. And as far as the scar is concerned Scars can involve textural change in the superficial and deep dermis, and can also be associated with erythema, and less often pigmentary change. In general, treatment of acne scarring is a multistep procedure. First,examination of is necessary to classify the subtypes of scarring that are present. Then, the patient´s primary concerns are elicited, and the patient is offered a menu of procedures that may address the various components of the scarring process...kindly consult a dermatologist they will do the needful.
