Acne Treatment Guide: How To Treat Mild Acne?

By Javier Fuller

Acne attacks you in military like precision! Second Lieutenant, Lieutenant and Captain! The attacks of acne are styled as mild, moderate and severe. All are unwelcome promotions! When you have the attack, treat it properly at the first stage itself, in the manner it should be treated. You will save lots of complications. If you allow it to pass through the second stage and reach the third stage, it is a certain invitation to scars. No scar ever looks great on the face!

So prevention is better than cure. Well said, but acne is such a type of happening, you can't prevent it. But when it does happen, you can treat it in a proper manner.

Self treatment, if you are sure about medication, is good. But to consult your doctor is better, as he is the right person, to recognize what type of acne is yours. He has the better eyes and judgments for the possible consequences of this attack.

Mild attack of acne means, arrival of whiteheads and blackheads on your face. Begin your treatment by over the counter medications consisting of benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Before using these medications, wash your face, the acne-prone area with a supportive cleanser and lukewarm water. Do the washing exercise, just twice a day, not more. Don't try to overreach the surface of the skin. It will be overreaction and the side-effects would do more damage to your skin. The healing process will be reversed.  If you use soap, choose the mild one.

Patience and caution are two watchwords in the treatment of mild acne. You are new to the acne and so are your acne to the medication with which you confront it. It will take its time to understand and accept it. Don't you be alarmed, if you get dryness, redness or peeling. Persist with oil-free moisturizer, to tackle peeling. Two months, is the normal time required to treat mild acne. If it is not controlled by then, do meet the dermatologist for further guidance. He is the right person to put you on the alternative course.

If in the meantime, acne disappears, don't give up medications that brought success to you, immediately. Continue with the treatment for a couple of weeks more, so that the problem is rooted out, and lesions are not formed.

When you find this mild attack is not responding to the line of treatment adopted by you in good faith, the purpose of consulting the dermatologist is simple. On the merits of your case, he may take recourse to one or more, or combination of two therapies. Generally such medications may mean a prescription topical antimicrobial or topical retinoid.  These deliver proven results.

Lastly, a bold assurance to all acne sufferers. Today, we have treatment for every type of acne. The factors that cause acne are many and they vary from individual to individual.  So, the treatment depends upon certain fixed factors and certain variable factors like skin type and age. Meet your dermatologist and let him decide medication for you.
