Acupuncture and Pimples

Chinese medicine is unique in its totally different approach to treatment compared to western standards. The use of acupuncture for pimples evidences this difference.

The most severe forms of the condition can lead to large and painful cysts that often leave scarring. Aside from this, the condition rarely poses any other health threat.

Cystic Acne and Some Natural Treatments

More severe cases of acne tend to be characterized not just by the presence of pimples and blemishes, but also by the formation of nodules or cysts. Acne that involves the development of cysts is called cystic acne.

A cystic acne lesion is much larger than a regular pimple, sometimes 5mm or more in diameter. These lesions can be hard and painful. Cystic acne lesions are filled with pus but should not be squeezed. Squeezing a cystic lesion can lead to a worse infection and inflammation. The lesions are prone to scarring and should be taken care of by a dermatologist, who often uses procedures to reduce swelling and to lessen the likelihood of scar formation.

Acne Scars

Acne sufferers can sometimes receive a double wallop of skin problems to deal with. Not only do they have to fend off the lesions that are a part of acne, but they can also have scars to contend with after the lesions are gone.

Gynecomastia Cure

Gynecomastia is a condition where a man has enlarged breasts. The “man breasts” are caused by fatty and glandural tissues in the chest area. It is unclear what causes these excessive tissues to form but it affects more men than people actually realize. Studies have shown that no single factor causes this condition.

Aging and obesity can contribute to the enlargement of the male breasts. When men age, production of the male hormones declines which results in the enlargement of the breasts. Obesity can lead to excess fats being deposited in the chest area. Cysts, blood clots and breast cancer can also lead to the enlargement of the breasts. A doctor can make the necessary diagnosis to determine if you have a much deeper medical problem than just fatty glands. Males with XXY chromosomes can also have enlarged breasts because of the over-production of female hormones such as estrogen.
