  • neglect or excessive use of personal hygiene means and cosmetics;
  • intestinal dysbiosis (demands additional consultation of the gastroenterologist who can appoint the corresponding probiotics);
  • medicinal therapy, pathological processes in a gastrointestinal tract and reproductive system, streptococcal or staphylococcal infections and other diseases;
  • insufficient food allowance with use in food of products of poor quality (semi-finished products, fast food, etc.);

Food allowance at skin rashes

Apparently from the above-mentioned, the diet of foodstuff and correctness of food plays an important role in fight against developing of spots and eels. A gastrointestinal tract trying to remove the harmful substances getting to it with the eaten food out of organism limits uses for this purpose not only kidneys and intestines, but also integuments which answer it with an inflammation and suppuration in the form of rash.

Of course, forever to get rid of favourite dishes and their ingredients quite difficult, but to limit their use during an exacerbation of an illness or to buy products analogs which cost often is even cheaper it is undoubtedly possible and it is even necessary. Also to fans to eat, during the acute period of a chronic disease, for the purpose of decrease in an adverse effect of low-quality products, it is possible to recommend reception of enterosorbents, for example Absorbent carbon, Filtrum-STI and so forth.

The table is divided below into two groups of food stuffs which can promote prevention or aggravation of developing of spots.

Harmful products Useful products
Fried meat, fat meat Light meat, fast meat, meat of young animals
Spices (in particular acute) Greens, herbs
Smoked products Natural (house) dry-cured products
The baked products with a crust (prepared on naked flame) The baked products in a foil (prepared on naked flame)
Fancy bread (in particular with confiture or cream) Crackers, small loafs
Garnishes carbohydrate-rich (rice, pasta) Vegetable garnishes
Black tea Green tea
Table salt Sea salt
Sugar Fruit sugar (juice), honey (in a small amount because of allergenicity)
Industrial drinks (Cola, Sprite, Forfeit and so forth) Freshly cooked natural juice (in particular vegetable fruit drinks)
Fat milk, cake cheeses and pastes Skim cheese, natural yogurt
Mayonnaise Sour cream (perhaps, with lemon juice)
Coffee Chicory
Ketchup Tomatoes, home-made tomato paste

Capsules and tablets from eels

Capsules and tablets from spots on the face for teenagers and adults are a peculiar "reserve" dosage form of anti-acne therapy which is used only at especially severe disease. In this case the dermatologist has to define for certain whether treatment of spots on the face from within and what tablets or capsules at the same time he needs to appoint is required to the patient.

The main mechanisms of action of the remedies (outside and system) intended for disposal of spots are directed on:

  • decrease in the inflammatory process happening in a hair follicle and also around it;
  • reduction of number of disease-producing bacteria in hair follicles;
  • reduction of release of skin fat;

The mechanism of their influence is directed to delay of growth and maturing of skin cells and sebaceous glands that the follicle the dying-off corneous layer leads to reduction of products of skin fat and the prevention of obstruction hair.

About retinoids are rather inconsistent also along with high performance and lasting therapeutic effect at treatment of spots, speak about a set of the collateral manifestations inherent in these drugs.

The most essential negative effects of retinoids, in particular at their oral administration, consider: alopecia, pancreatitis, dermatitis, depression, cheilitis, lipidemia, misbirth, leukopenia, xerosis, osteoporosis, insufficiency of livers/kidneys, teratogenic action, termination of growth or growth of a bone tissue. In this regard only the professional doctor can appoint retinoids, at the same time showing care and watching the patient during passing of therapy by him. Also it is necessary to consider what not the cheapest pharmaceutical spots medicines and black points and their price for many patients can strike retinoids the family budget noticeably.

The mechanism of effect of active ingredient of drugs is based on interaction of an adapalen with specific γ-receptors of skin epidermal cells.

Anti-inflammatory effects are connected with impact of an adapalen on inflammatory factors, by oppression of leukocytic migration in the center of an inflammation and metabolic transformations of arachidonic acid. Komedonolitichesky action happens for the account decrease in "stseplennost" of cells of an epithelium in the mouth of a hair follicle that leads to decrease in risk factors of forming of microcomedones.

It is necessary to apply all dosage forms including adapalen outwardly, evenly apply them on problem sites of skin of 1 times at 24 o'clock before going to bed, passing hits of medical drugs on mucous membranes of lips and eyes. The therapeutic effectiveness of Adapalen is observed after 4-8 weeks of its use, steady improvement is noted in 3 months of carrying out treatment.

Action of an izotretinoin is based on processes of normalization of terminal cellular differentiation, oppression of hyper proliferation of output channels of epithelial sebaceous glands, braking of formation of a detritis and simplification of its evacuation. Thanks to it the composition of skin fat is normalized, its producing goes down and allocation is facilitated that leads to reduction of the inflammatory reaction observed around glands.

Izotretinoin in the form of solution and ointment it is necessary to apply outwardly, applying a thin film of drug on the struck skin sites twice a day. For achievement of therapeutic effect duration of such therapy has to be not less than 4-6 weeks.

The second mechanism of action of remedies of this group consists in their antimicrobic influence, because of active penetration of molecules of acid into bacterial cells that slows down their reproduction and growth. Also, one of pluses of the azelaic acid is lack to it of the resistance characteristic of drugs of group of antibiotics.
