Pimples, also known as zits, are skin cysts or bumps which occur when excess oil gets trapped in the skin pores. Most pimples are caused by hormonal changes; hormones trigger excessive oil production in various parts of the body, resulting in clogged pores.
Pimple on nose area outbreak is one of the most common issues because the nose pores are large, hence clog more easily. Too much sebum production, when combined with dirt, germs and dead skin, often causes unpleasant nose bumps. Digestive issues can cause nose pimples as well.
Pimple on chin outbreaks
In men, trapped hair follicles from shaving often results in chin bumps. However, mostly in adult men and women, pimple on chin outbreaks are typically indicative of a hormonal overdrive, which can either be a result of excessive stress or too much sugar intake. To deal with these, look for foods that help regulate hormones, like Quinoa, almonds, avocados, salmon eggs and broccoli.
Pimple on labia and what it means
A single pimple on labia, in most cases is a perfectly normal occurrence known as a Bartholin cyst, from the Bartholin gland, which secrete mucus. When the glands become blocked, a pretty huge bump can form, which normally resolves on its own over a few days. However, waxing or shaving often times causes pimples in the groin area due to ingrown hair. Poor personal hygiene is another culprit one should look into and improve on, to avoid these. Unfortunately, sometimes a pimple on labia can indicate a wart or a symptom of a sexually transmitted disease. Check for oozing and itching. If, after using over-the-counter creams, and the pimple doesn’t clear after 3-4 days, consult a gynaecologist.
Effective ways to prevent and deal with pimples
By all means, resist the temptation to keep picking and popping pimples. Let the cysts dry off by themselves; after all, most do so in two to three days. Clogged pores do just fine without needing help by squeezing or scrubbing. In fact, the skin begins healing and restoring itself better and efficiently when fingers and foreign materials are kept off of it.
Avoiding too much indulgence of pimple causing foods like dairy products, refined carbohydrates, trans-fats and saturated fats, helps combat skin outbreaks. For those with food allergies like eggs, and materials like fur, latex etc., avoiding these triggers is a great way to stay pimple free.
To deal with most pimple outbreaks, avoid using harsh shower gels, lotions and creams as these irritate the skin. Men too should always ensure they shave with the grain of their hair, using a sharp clean razor to avoid ingrown hair and skin irritation which results in pimples on chin area among other places.
If the pimples look really inflamed, contacting a dermatologist is always the best thing to do.
Most importantly, avoid stress, hydrate, eat and sleep well. These simple techniques go a long way in ensuring that your skin stays and looks healthy.
