Ayurvedic Treatment For Acne & Herbal Remedies!
What do you think would be the most dreaded thing in the life of a teenager? No, it is not mathematics, or a monster from a fairy tale. It is Acne. Any teenager at least once in their puberty faced this issue of red, painful, pus forming skin eruption. Many cosmetic brands are selling their products and growing immensely by taking advantage of this very fear of people suffering from acne. But today, in this topic you are going to learn about the ayurvedic treatment of acne, that too reasonable and permanent.
Introduction Of Acne
Acne is one of the commonest skin problems majorly faced by the teenagers. Though other age groups are also affected. Basically acne are the pores of your skin which get filled by the pus, sebum(secretion of sebaceous glands) and hair. The common sites for the acne are face, forehead, chest and shoulders.
Causes Of Acne
The main cause of the acne is the hormonal changes which occur when you enter the age of puberty. This spike in the androgen along with the sebaceous glands secretion allows the bacteria to grow on your pores of skin which ultimately lead to pus formation. Following are the maintaining cause of the acne:
- Consumption of high carbohydrates diet, deep fried foods, excess sugars etc
- Hormonal changes that is more prominent in girls during menses
- Picking of pimples
Symptoms Of Acne
- Small red, papular eruptions with a white centre
- Dark spots with open pores at the centre which are also called blackheads.
- Small white bumps without an obvious opening are also called whiteheads.
Diagnosis Of Acne
The history of the complaints and a general physical examination by a physician in the OPD itself is more than enough to diagnose acne.
Treatment in Allopathy Of Acne
The treatment of acne in allopathy seems more painful than acne itself. This is because the patient is advised for cauterization. This process is so painful that local anaesthesia has to be used before the procedure. In some cases steroidal injections are also used which is very harmful and leaves a scar behind.
Ayurvedic point of view in Acne
Any case of any disease is first of all assessed with the help of symptoms so that a proper diagnosis is made. Only then it is possible to prepare a treatment plan. In Ayurveda, the diagnosis is made through a different point of view than modern science. It is not merely organs involved which are considered while doing so, but energy that is vitiated (root cause of disease). There are three forms of energies (doshas) in a human: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each energy is composed of two of five basic elements which are Air, Space, Water, Fire and Soil. Therefore, the diagnosis in Ayurveda is looking for the dosha involved so that the same could be brought back in harmony. In cases of acne, the main dosha involved is Pitta. It could be easily related to the risk factors in acne like consuming high spicy foods, junk foods, chicken, carbonated drinks etc. All the mentioned food items increase the Pitta dosha.
