Acne Treatment Q & A

Why do I have acne?

Acne leads to pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, and other unsightly skin bumps that develop when hair follicles become clogged with oil, debris, and dead skin cells. You might just be prone to acne because it tends to run in your genes. But the breakouts you experience and their severity can stem from:

  • Using oil-based creams or makeup
  • Friction or pressure on your skin
  • Androgen hormone activity
  • Overproduction of oil
  • Prescription medications
  • Periods of extreme stress

It’s also believed that consuming lots of simple carbohydrates — like bread and pasta — as well as skim milk can worsen acne.

When should I see a dermatologist for acne?

Because ongoing acne breakouts — no matter how minor they may seem — can lead to permanent skin scarring, it’s important to schedule an acne treatment evaluation at Dadeland Dermatology Group as soon as possible. Dr. Rodriguez encourages you to schedule an exam if your acne is:

  • Making you feel self-conscious
  • Painful and uncomfortable
  • New and seems to come out of nowhere
  • Associated with large bumps beneath your skin
  • Persistent and doesn’t respond to over-the-counter medications

Plus, because acne is sometimes associated with hormonal imbalances, especially in women, Dr. Rodriguez can help you get to the root of any medical issues that may be triggering your acne. Dr. Rodriguez has a special interest and extensive training in modern acne treatments, so he can help you find the best possible solution for your specific condition.
