For milder cases of acne, home treatments that reduce inflammation and bacteria growth can work well. Easily available items like lemons, apple cider vinegar, mint etc combat inflammation and reduce scars to a certain extent. A combination of these can take care of the milder eruptions of acne.
For deeper infections, home remedies may not be the answer. Acne appears when a pore in our skin clogs. Normally dead skin cells rise to the body surface and are shed by the skin. However, when the dead skin cells do not get shed, they tend to stick together inside the pore and remain trapped there a they are not shed by the skin. This happens when the body starts to produce too much oil. Till this point it is fine. However if the skin bacteria also happen to get inside the pore, inflammation and infection sets in. This is the point when a treatment is required. For milder infections a topical ointment applied over a period of 4 to 8 weeks is good enough.
For more severe cases an antibiotic is recommended to address an underlying problem. Peels are also used but only under the supervision of a dermatologist. Chemical peels are used to treat mostly blackheads and papules. If an acne cyst is pretty large then dermatologists can perform an extraction and drain the infection out. Acne should never be tampered with by yourself as touching the infected area will leave permanent scars.
