Acne vulgaris is a common inflammatory disorder of the sebaceous glands characterized by the presents of blackheads with papules, pustules and in more severe cases – cysts and scars. Although the actual cause of acne is still unknown, many physicians suggest that it is an infectious disease. The tiny oil-secreting sebaceous glands found in large numbers on the face, upper back and chest may become infected with bacteria. In particular, Staphylococcus, Streptocococcus and Candida Albicans will accumulate and produce a secondary infection.This leads to a worsening of clinical symptoms, making acne extremely difficult to treat. Unfortunately, many antibiotic treatments are unable to kill off Staphylococcus infection, since the bacteria drug resistant. Paying attention to diet is also important, since certain foods can aggravate the condition, especially sugar, caffeine, cocoa, refined vegetable oils as well as various nitrates and sulphites that are used extensively as preservatives in processed foodstuffs.
