Acne Excess Facial Hair and Other Skin Conditions
Acne is a chronic skin condition that affects most people at some point during their life. It causes spots to develop on the skin, usually on the face, back and chest. The symptoms of acne can be mild, moderate or severe. It usually develops in puberty, a time of great hormonal upheaval, but can affect both men and women into their forties and beyond. It can have an adverse effect on self esteem and is usually treated effectively, although some treatments may take a couple of months to work fully.
Mild cases of acne can be treated with over the counter remedies such as bezyl peroxide and salicylic acid creams and gels. For more severe cases of acne various treatments can be prescribed. If you have any questions or would like more information, please call the pharmacist on 01260 295701.
Another distressing Skin condition is that of excessive facial hair, which can occur as a result of hormone imbalances or as a side effect of certain drugs. Over the counter creams and bleaches may be used but for an effective solution Vaniqa (Eflornithine) Cream may be used.
