Comedonal Acne

Comedonal Acne is a stubborn non-inflammatory form of acne, which is often forgotten about. It consists of blackheads, and causes the skin to look and feel bumpy, similar to Sandpaper. It is the hardest type of acne to treat, and i am exteremely thankfully i did not have Comedonal Acne, I just had normal inflammatory acne.

When it comes to Comedonal acne, the first response would be salicylic acid cleaner such as Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash, it only has 2% salicylic acid so for most people with Comedonal Acne, you will need a stronger salicylic acid but DO NOT AND I REPEAT DO NOT BUY SALICYLIC ACID FROM EBAY, Please see a skin care specalist, the legitimate purchase of pure salicylic acid is regulated, so the pure salicylic acid you find on eBay is either a) Made in a bath tub/home labatory so although it says say 10% on the label, it can be substantially higher say 40-50% or b) Fake from China, now salicylic acid in itself is not dangerous per say, but like all acids it can burn your skin.

Aswell as washing you face with Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash in the first instance, read my How To Get Rid Of Acne Naturally article, since diet can contribute to Comedonal Acne, along with Oily hair/skin, Hormones (in both men and women), some Cosmetics, Stress, some medicines, etc.

If these only cause minor improvement then another common treatment would be a systemic anti-fungal treatments such as Diflucan, again see a licenced proffesional, dont just buy it on the internet from some dodgy backstreet pharmacy.

After Diflucan, it would likely be something like Accutane, yes i keep coming back to Accutane, because when nothing else works it clears it up, although it is a last response because some people can get bad sides, but most people like myself only get dry lips and dry/flakey skin, again see a dermatoligist for risk minimisation.

As i mentioned in my Acne Treatments That Work article, acne is kind of unique, well its not, since many thousands of people have it, but unique in the sence of your strain may vary, so just don’t be dishartened, try the natural cures then be prepared to medication.

    Excellent article, thanks the Comedonal Acne treatment ideas for warning me about eBay, i was actually buying someone then at the last minute I googled it and found your article. I’m booked in to see a professional; it’s worth the extra money to ensure i don’t get acid burns.
