Acne

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Acne. Below is what he has to say.

Acne is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the oil glands in your skin, resulting in whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, nodules and even painful cysts. It most commonly occurs during puberty but it can appear at any age. It's certainly the most common skin problem with at least 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 years suffering from it at some time.

Acne isn't dangerous, but it can be uncomfortable and psychologically distressing, and it can also lead to scars. Mild acne can be treated with over the counter medicines containing benzoil peroxide or salicylic acid, which helps to clear the blocked oil glands. Moderate to severe acne usually needs stronger medicines to be treated effectively, using oral antibiotics and also gels and creams which contain the same ingredients as over the counter treatments, but in stronger doses and they are often combined with an antibiotic.

If you're suffering from moderate to severe acne and you would like a prescription for stronger medication such as Duac, Minocin or Oxytetracycline, then UK Meds can assist you through their online doctor service.
