Acne can be frustrating.


Sometimes it comes on when you are teenager and just does not go. Other times, adults who never had acne as teenagers, suddenly break out into painful pimples on the chin and jaw line and seem to last forever.

These kind of acne are called Persistent or Recurrent Acne. One of the commonest forms of persistent acne is Acne Rosacea. Adults with this condition have rose cheeks and sensitive skin. As it progresses it may lead to rhinophyma, i.e. enlargement of nose with redness and nodules. 

Another variant of Persistent Acne is Cystic Acne. People who have them often identify them as lump swellings just under the skin, which one cannot even have the pleasure to burst. Ughh!! 

Terrible as it sounds, Persistent Acne is however, treatable. Often an underlying medical condition is the trigger, which when treated correctly, controls the outbreak acne attacks. Proper skin care routine, which involves the use of choicest skin care products suited to your type of skin, a good controlled diet and 8 hours of sleep, will often do the trick in such cases.
