Acne conglobata (also known as acneglobus, conglobate acne, and follicular acnes) is a severe form of acne that occurs when clogged pores become infected with bacteria. The inflammation and overproduction of oil and sweat that accompanies acne conglobata can lead to redness, peeling, and even scars. While there is no one cure for acne conglobata, there are a few treatments that can help manage the condition.
One of the most important things you can do to manage acne conglobata is to keep your skin clean and free of bacteria. You should also avoid using harsh chemicals on your skin, which can aggravate the condition. To help reduce the amount of oil and sweat produced by the acne, you should avoid using too many facial products, especially those that contain oil. And, of course, you should seek out professional help if the acne is particularly severe.
In the meantime, there are a few treatments that can help manage the condition. First, you can use topical products that contain benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or retinoids. These medications help to reduce the amount of oil and sweat produced by the acne, as well as the inflammation and redness that often accompanies it. Second, you can use oral antibiotics to treat the acne and kill the bacteria that is causing it. Finally, you can use ultraviolet light therapy (UVA or UVB) to kill the bacteria and reduce the inflammation and redness that often accompany acne conglobata.
