In Western Medicine
The cause of Acne is still not fully understood, but is somehow related to hormones due to puberty and/or bacteria. Acne is most commonly found in people with oily skin and it can leave scars once it heals. It is a common inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous glands characterized by papules, pustules, inflamed nodules and pus-filled cysts. Acne eruptions are commonly found around hair follicles and may have small white or black heads surrounded by red skin.
In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
TCM believes that a dysfunction of the internal organs causes Acne. Lung heat with heat in the blood, damp heat in large intestine and stomach and spleen dysfunction with damp phlegm are the main pathogens. They will have red or shiny oily complexion and have pus, nodules, itchiness eruption, pain in the area, constipation and dark yellow urine with a decreased appetite.
Different individuals may experience different symptoms, including:
- Recurrent red spots or swelling on the skin, which might inflame and fill with pus and are commonly known as pimples
- Acne appears on the face, chest, shoulders, neck, or upper portion of the back
- Dark spots with open pores at the center (blackheads)
- Tiny white bumps under the skin that have no obvious opening (whiteheads)
- Red swellings or lumps (known as papules) that are visibly filled with pus
- Nodules or lumps under the skin that are inflamed, fluid-filled, and often tender; these nodules may become as large as an inch across
