Acne is associated with dysbiosis of the skin microbiome and inflammation.
Early acne lesions and inflammatory papules show significant infiltration of macrophages and neutrophils, i.e. white blood cells, which contribute to inflammation and secretion of enzymes stimulating even more inflammation and potentially rupture of the surrounding structures. Soon a lesion or tiny wound in the skin barrier is likely to appear. When that happens, Aprobaxil can help the immune system balance the microbiome in that localised area. This will reduce inflammation, prevent infection and slow the progress of the disease and of scar formation.
Aprobaxil can help remove infection swiftly from erupted or squeezed pimples, papules, pustules, whiteheads and cysts.
As the pilosebaceours unit are mostly on the face, forehead, neck, upper back, shoulders and chest, these locations are the most common for acne.
Terminology in acne:
A pimple is the same as a zit or a spot. They are also called comedos.
A comedo is a clogged “pilosebaceous unit. A pilosebaceours unit includes the hair follicle and the sebaceous gland as they share the same skin pore opening for exit to the skin surface. Therefore, a comedo is often referred to as a plugged pore.
Whiteheads are closed plugged pores, i.e. a type of comedo.
Blackheads are open plugged pores, i.e. a type of comedo.
Papules are small red tender bumps.
Pustules are also referred to as pimples and are papules with pus at their tips.
Nodules are large solid painful lumps beneath the surface of the skin.
Cystic lesions are pus-filled lumps beneath the surface of the skin.
