The Cardinal Rules of Acne Control...

Controlling Acne may also require minimizing stress and controlling the lifestyle issues that increase the chances of a breakout. It’s likely that your acne will flare up when other things aren’t going well, so controlling those factors is a key to prevention.

But you’re human and you’re acne prone, and you wake up many mornings to find that you’ve got nasty new developments. Whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, papules… whatever it is, once it has formed you will want to do whatever you can to stop it from spreading, controlling the discomfort and reduce your chances of acne scarring.

The cardinal rule of acne controll is “don’t touch.” You may be tempted to squeeze it, to poke it, to pinch it or pop it. Resist this temptation. You will most likely spread the infected oils, increase the inflammation and make the whole situation much worse.

If your zit or pimple has not yet formed a head, then try applying ice to it for a few minutes every hour. This can work to shrink the breakoutand relieve your worries. If it has already formed a head, however, cold won’t work. In that case you can try heat, which will increase blood circulation. Along with heat, apply gentle pressure in the hopes that the pimple will drain. Do not, however, burst the pimple forcefully.

If a breakout happens despite your best efforts at prevention, and the cold and heat appear useless, then there are a variety of creams and prescription meds that can help you. The important thing is making you comfortable. If your breakout is on your face, then do what you can to cover it up with non-oily cosmetics and remember, you’re not alone. For back, chest and shoulder acne, make sure you wear loose clothing that won’t cause further irritation. Be mindful of your breakout, avoiding contact with trouble areas that may cause pain and discomfort. If it’s really serious, consider seeing a dermatologist for advice about the best course of action for you.

Control of chronic and recurring acne problems may require a lengthy course of medication. In severe cases, it may take several months of a particular medication before you see any real results, and you may spend considerable time with a particular treatment only to find that it doesn’t work for you.
