Overview

What is Lymecycline?

Acne is the most common skin condition that occurs during adolescent years. Most teenagers and young adults get acne at some point, which in most cases can be treated with effective medications.

Lymecycline is an effective antibiotic for the treatment of acne which can be taken by adults and children over the age of 12. The treatment includes taking one capsule per day and should be completed till the end.

What is Acne?

During puberty, many hormonal changes occur, and sebaceous glands (the glands adjacent to hair follicles under the skin) produce excess oil. The excess oil produced (also known as sebum) together with the dead skin cells block the hair follicles forming plugs. Acne varies in type according to the type of plug that is formed.

The produced sebum activates a certain type of bacteria that live on the skin (P. acnes), which results in inflammation of the skin and infection of the formed plugs. Antibiotics are considered a cornerstone in the treatment of many cases of acne. Symptoms and treatment of acne depend on the severity of the case.

FAQ

  • Is acne a contagious condition?

    No, you can touch or hug a person with acne without any fear to catch acne.

  • Does repeated washing of my face make acne go away faster?

    No, you shouldn’t wash your face several time a day, because it removes all skin oil resulting in
    stimulation of sebaceous glands to produce excess oil (aka, worsened acne).

  • Can stress cause acne?

    Yes, stress may be one of the leading causes of acne,and it is also considered one of acne triggers.

  • What is the best treatment for acne?

    Acne should be treated individuallyas severity of cases differ from person to another.

  • Can certain types of food cause acne?

    No, acne is not caused by food.

  • I started acnetreatment three weeks ago and I see no improvement. Do I need to try another medication?

    You have to be more patientas most of acne treatments needs two to three months to work
    effectively.

Causes

Causes of ACNE

There is a strong relation between ACNE formation and hormonal changes that occur at puberty. These hormones have two roles in acne. On one hand, they activate specific glands located adjacent to hair follicles under the skin, and this activation causes the glands to produce more an oily material known as “abnormal sebum”. The abnormal serum, in turn, activates certain bacteria that causes inflammation and pus formation.

On the other hand, the hormones thicken the inner lining of the hair follicles causing pores blockade (blockade of the opening of the hair follicles).

ACNE formation factors 

Four factors are involved in acne formation:

  1. The activity of certain hormones at puberty (androgens).
  2. Excess oil production by the glands under the skin (sebaceous glands).
  3. Bacteria (a specific type called P. Acnes).
  4. Blockade of hair follicles by oil and dead skin.

 Face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders are the most common areas to have acne due to the presence of more sebaceous (oil-producing) glands that are connected to the hair follicles.

 Triggers that cause ACNE flare-ups:

  • Many women have acne during the first pregnancy trimester.
  • Adult women may have acne at certain times due to hormonal changes, they may have flares of acne just before the period.
  • Women with polycystic ovary syndrome suffer usually from acne and weight gain.
  • Stress
  • Spicy food, chocolate, skim milk and high-carbohydrates food.
  • Some cosmetic products of low quality.

Medications that cause ACNE flare-ups:

Many medications aggravate acne, including:

  • Antiepileptics (Phenytoin, Carbamazepine and Phenobarbital).
  • Cyclosporine.
  • Oral corticosteroids.
  • Testosterone.
  • Anabolic steroids.
  • Antidepressants (Lithium)
  • Antituberculous drugs (Isoniazid and Rifampicin).
