is acne and why is it on my butt (and/or back & body)?
Acne is a chronic inflammatory disease of the sebaceous
hair follicles. Each follicle contains a tiny hair and multiple
sebaceous glands. Under normal circumstances, sebum, the
oily substance made by the sebaceous glands, travels up
the hair follicle and out to the skins surface. However,
with acne, sebum is trapped within the follicle and skin
bacteria multiplies within the clogged pores. Acne develops
on those areas of the skin where sebaceous glands are most
numerous: the face, scalp, neck, chest, back, and upper
arms and shoulders. Acne typically begins in adolescence,
although onset in the twenties or thirties is common. Acne
may also run in families, although dermatologists aren't
sure exactly what the connection is yet.
Acne is no fun. It can make you feel shy in front
of yo spouse, girlfriend, or boyfriend, which may also keep
you from going to the beach or swimming pool. Did you realize,
though, that almost everyone suffers from acne at some time?
Whether it's pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads, acne affects
a lot of kids (and many adults too).

The black in a blackhead is dried oil and shed skin cells
in the openings of the hair follicles, not dirt. For the
normal care of your skin, wash your face with soap and
warm water twice a day. Acne is not caused by dirt. Washing
too often or too vigorously may actually make your acne
worse. Regular shampooing is also recommended. If your
hair is oily, you may want to wash it more often. Avoid
scrubbing. Dirt doesn't cause acne. Scrubbing will
only inflame and irritate your tender skin. Use
a mild soap. Wash your skin gently with a soap or cleanser
that's specially made for people with acne.
with acne who shave should try both an electric and a
safety razor to see which is more comfortable. If you
use a safety razor, soften your beard thoroughly with
soap and warm water before applying shaving cream. To
avoid nicking pimples, shave as lightly as possible. Shave
only when necessary and always use a sharp blade.
Acne is not caused by the foods you eat. Dermatologists
have differing opinions on the importance of your diet
in the management of acne. One thing is certain; a strict
diet by itself will not clear your skin. On the
other hand, if certain foods seem to make your acne
worse, then try to avoid them. But be careful about
jumping to conclusions, acne may get better or worse
on its own. It is always important to eat a well balanced

Since sunlight ages the skin and can cause skin cancer,
you should not sunburn, "bake in the sun,"
or use sunlamps. Choose a sunscreen that is oil-free,
such as a gel or light lotion.
If you use a moisturizer, look for ones that are oil-free
and not just water-based. Choose products that are "non-comedogenic"
(should not cause whiteheads or blackheads) or "non-acnegenic"
(should not cause acne). Remove your cosmetics every
night with soap and water. Shield
your face when applying hairsprays and gels.
