Acne vulgaris is common among those in 10-30s on their face, back, and chest. It may appear with pus and red swelling. It is believed that hormonal balance, sebum of the skin, abnormal keratinization, bacterial infection, age, food, stress, and cosmetics are all related to aggravate the condition.
The management of the condition require healthy life style (descent meal and sleep), changing cosmetics, the use of hypo-irritant foam, avoiding constipation, besides topical medicine. A short course of oral antibiotics or oral Vitamin B2 and B6 may be prescribed. Chinese medicine called Jumihaidokuto may also be added. Chemical pealing is another effective way of the management, although this method is not covered by Japanese Health Insurance.
