Acne

Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point, but usually occurs due to hormonal changes in women and during puberty.

It is caused when tiny holes in the skin, known as hair follicles, become blocked and spots start to develop, usually on the face, chest and back. These spots can vary from small blackheads to pus-filled cysts in severe cases, which can lead to long-lasting blemishes and permanent scarring.

If you develop acne, it is important to speak to your pharmacist for advice. Treatment usually depends on how severe the acne is, but it can often be treated with over-the-counter gels and creams that contain benzoyl peroxide.

Rowlands Pharmacy offer a selection of effective acne treatments, including gels, creams and face washes, such as the Panoxyl Aquagel gel or FREEDERM Antibacterial Facial Cleanse. These treatments can take up to three months to work, so don't expect results overnight and make sure to visit your GP if the acne is more widespread as you may need prescription medication.
