Spots

We often treat lumps and bumps on our skin in the same panicked way, without taking into consideration what our skin is trying to tell us, or what it needs. Different spots are formed in different ways and have different symptoms and may need to be treated differently.

Key Things To Know About Spots?

  • As there are many reasons why lumps and bumps may occur, there are various symptoms associated with this skin concern:

    • Blackheads – Are extremely common form of mild acne which is easily identified by the dark colour of blemishes. Typically, persistent and difficult to shift, blackheads are usually found around the nose area, forehead or chin. Their strange colour is a result of the melanin in sebum oxidising as it is exposed to air and turning black.
    • Whiteheads – Are formed in a similar way to blackheads, excess sebum blocks pores and becomes mixed up with bacteria and dead skin cells. These spots are usually found lurking around hairlines and on chin, although they can appear anywhere on the body.
    • Pustules – When pores become clogged with sebum and dead skin cells, sections of skin are sometimes caused to bulge, resulting in a pustule. Pustules are aptly named for the pus they contain as a result of an infection of a pore. When a pustule is caused by acne it will become hard and painful, when this process occurs a pustule becomes a cyst, and your acne becomes cystic acne. Pustules are usually white lumps encased in red skin, which can grow quite large and appear on any part of the body.
    • Cysts – Cysts are considered a more extreme form of acne than blackheads and whiteheads, and there are lots of different types of cysts. All cysts are essentially pockets of tissues that are filled with pus or other materials. They can be found anywhere on the body and can be inflamed, smooth, painless and also dark in colour.
    • Age Spots – Your skin is pigmented when you’ll notice flat, darkened patches of skin which are light brown to black in colour and can range in size from small dot to a much larger patch. These can be caused by sun exposure (also known as age spots), hormonal changes during pregnancy, or skin injury resulting from a bug bite, acne or cosmetic procedures. Generally darker skinned people are more prone to skin discolouration due to the higher amount of melanin in their skin, which is the pigment that determines their skin colour.

How Can I Get Rid Of My Spots?

Adopting a thorough facial cleansing and skincare regime can help prevent breakouts if you suffer from spots, blemishes or acne, but it’s important to use the right products for your skin type. There are many over-the-counter solutions for mild acne available at most chemists, but for moderate and more severe cases of spots and acne, you may achieve better results with professional skin treatments.

What causes spots?

The term ‘spots’ can refer to a number of different skin conditions, including blemishes and pimples, acne, milia, age spots, freckles, red spots and rashes.
There is no single cause for spots as it is a generic term which applies to a variety of skin conditions.
Some spots might be caused by excess oil or hormonal factors, others – such as milia – have no known cause.
Some spots and dark marks (such as age spots and freckles) can be caused by sun exposure or ageing skin.

Treating your spots at home

It’s important to know what is causing your spots before you try any home remedies. Acne sufferers, in particular, can have very sensitive skin which can be susceptible to infection, especially in more severe cases.
It’s important you don’t use anything which might upset your skin further, so before trying natural remedies, speak to your dermatologist. Coconut oil is often recommended for its natural skin benefits, but seek advice if you have oily, acne-prone skin.
Aloe vera is also a popular natural remedy due to its soothing, cooling characteristics, and is sometimes recommended for inflamed, angry blemishes and spots.
