Acne Doesn't Signal Illness

27 July 2014 - 08:09 PM

Acne is a multifactorial disease of the oil glands influenced by hormones. It is not a sign of a bad liver, weak immune system, inferior genetics, food allergy, emotional problems, gut disturbance or even hormonal imbalance. 

 

Just because you have acne does not mean you're sick - more than likely you're perfectly healthy as the next person, You just have bad skin.

 

Don't fret or panic that you have some horrible underlying health problem. It's really unlikely there's anything wrong with you. Remember some people just have acne, it's just apart of your genes.


Disability And Acne

27 July 2014 - 12:24 PM

Does anyone have a physical disability and acne as well? I'm a ventilator dependent quadriplegic (injured in 2012) and have had acne since I was roughly 11-12 years old ( now 21).

 

I have such a difficult time dealing with both. Constant stares and comments from people. It really weighs me down emotionally. My Acne is getting bad again even in the last month, I've exploded with papules on my cheeks and forehead and birth control is currently not an option due to my physical condition (I have blood pressure issues due my spinal cord injury and migraines). 

 

I am just trapped.

 

 


If Acne Was Caused By Diet Why Would It Only Start At Puberty?

Think about that for a minute. The acne is caused by diet claims are ludicrous. Acne is a hormonal disease  with a strong genetic link (bad acne tends to run in families). 

 

Stop with the conspiracies.
