The attacks of acne can be categorized as mild, moderate and severe. No matter what their degree of severity is, they all are an unwelcome entity. If you think that you have an acne outburst, check for all the signs and treat it while it’s still young. This way you will be spared the complications. On the other hand, if you allow it to pass through the second stage and reach the third stage, it is a certain invitation to scars and cyst that not at all contribute in you looking pretty.
The whiteheads and blackheads on your face are indications that you have mild acne. These can best be treated by over-the-counter medicines which consist of benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. The effectiveness of these medicines can be enhanced if you do it properly, like washing the face before the application of these medicines and the use of cleansers that suit you. These practices should not be done too regularly as overwork can also lead to the damage of the skin. In acne cases it is best that only mild soaps are used.
If you think that your skin problem is not reacting to the treatment, go to your dermatologist as the next lines of medications available are all prescription based. It is also important to see the dermatologist (even if the case is mild) because he can not only asses the situation better but will be able to change the medicine that works for you.
