Rough and uneven skin, it could be fungal acne?

Do you still have fine bumps on your skin despite trying absolutely everything? It could be fungal acne and we have the fix.  

What is Fungal Acne and how can you treat it?

When you think of acne then chances are that you are going to think about the usual spots and blemishes that many of us link to having acne.

Of course, these signs are a huge part of acne, however, what you may not realise is that there is also spots and blemishes you have that you may not even realise is actually not acne.

One example of this is fungal acne, fungal acne is a type of acne that not only doesn’t look like the usual form of acne and it doesn’t react to the usual treatments that you can use for acne.

What is it and why does fungal acne happen?

Fungal acne isn’t caused by oil and bacteria in pores, although oil and sebum production are a big part of helping feed the bacteria that cause fungal acne.

It is caused by an over growth of yeast.

Yeast, which can cause fungal acne is not dangerous and can be found living on your skin at any time.

It has the ability to grow out of control, which is when it will cause the hair follicles on your skin to become inflamed and then in turn cause these pimple-like bumps to form.

Making the skin look rough and uneven.

There are a number of reasons that the fungus can take over your skin, however, the main one has to be taking antibiotics.

How do you treat it?

So, how can you make fungal acne go away? How you approach it will really depend on how severe it is.

A topical cream will be able to remove the fungus and get your skin back to being balanced.

Also, shampoos like head and shoulders have been raved about for getting rid of fungal acne  

If it is not antibiotics that have caused the outbreak, then you need to think about your lifestyle choices.

You may want to make sure that you wear looser clothes, especially at times when you are likely to become sweaty (such as workout out) and then having a shower after you have worked out and got sweaty.

The main thing to do is to try and look after your skin as best that you can. Keep it clean, keep it hydrated and use the right products on it and your skin will thank you.
