A Comedo (मुहासा) is a clogged hair follicle (pore) in the skin. Keratin (skin debris) combines with oil to block the follicle. A Comedo can be open (blackhead) or closed by skin (whitehead) and occur with or without acne. Siddha Spirituality of Swami Hardas Life System has the capability to overcome Comedo problems effectively, without money, and medicines. Hence, let us learn Comedo causes, management, various treatments in Ayurveda, Home remedies, Self-care tips, and free Siddha energy remedies.
Comedo meaning (मुहासा का अर्थ)
The word Comedo comes from the Latin Comedere, meaning ‘to eat up’, and was historically used to describe parasitic worms; in modern medical terminology, it is used to suggest the worm-like appearance of the expressed material.
The chronic inflammatory condition that usually includes both comedones and inflamed papules and pustules (pimples) is called acne. The infection causes inflammation and the development of pus. Whether a skin condition classifies as acne depends on the number of comedones and infection. Comedones should not be confused with sebaceous filaments.
Comedo-type ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is not related to the skin conditions discussed here. DCIS is a non-invasive form of breast cancer, but comedo-type DCIS may be more aggressive and so may be more likely to become invasive.
Comedo Causes (मुहासा के कारण)
Oil production in the sebaceous glands increases during puberty, causing comedones and acne to be common in adolescents. Acne is also found premenstrually and in women with the polycystic ovarian syndrome. Smoking may worsen acne.
Oxidation rather than poor hygiene or dirt causes blackheads to be black. Washing or scrubbing the skin too much could make it worse, by irritating the skin. Touching and picking at comedones might cause irritation and spread infection. It is not clear what effect shaving has on the development of comedones or acne.
Some, but not all, skin products might increase comedones by blocking pores (Comedo), and greasy hair products (like pomades) can worsen acne. Skin products that claim to not clog pores may be labeled noncomedogenic or non-acnegenic.
Make-up and skin products that are oil-free and water-based may be less likely to cause acne. It is not known whether dietary factors or sun exposure make comedones better, worse or have no effect.
A hair that does not emerge normally, an ingrown hair, can also block the pore and cause a bulge or lead to infection (causing inflammation and pus).
Genes may play a role in the chances of developing acne. Comedones may be more common in some ethnic groups. People of recent African descent may experience more inflammation in comedones, more comedonal acne, and earlier onset of inflammation.
Comedo Pathophysiology (मुहासा – पैथोफिजियोलॉजी)
Comedones are associated with the pilosebaceous unit, which includes a hair follicle and sebaceous gland. These units are mostly on the:
- Upper chest
Excess keratin combined with sebum can plug the opening of the follicle. This small plug is called a microcomedo. Androgens increase sebum (oil) production. If sebum continues to build up behind the plug, it can enlarge and form a visible comedo.
A comedone may be open to the air (blackhead) or closed by skin (Whitehead). Being open to the air causes oxidation, which turns it black. Propionibacterium acnes is the suspected infectious agent in acne. It can proliferate in sebum and cause inflamed pustules (pimples) characteristic of acne. Nodules are inflamed, painful deep bumps under the skin.
Comedones that are 1 mm or larger are called macrocomedones. They are closed comedones and are more frequent on the face than the neck.
Solar comedones are related to many years of exposure to the sun, usually on the cheeks, not to acne-related pathophysiology.
Comedo Management (मुहासा का प्रबंधन)
Using non-oily cleansers and a mild soap may not cause as much irritation to the skin as regular soap. Blackheads can be removed across an area with commercially available pore-cleansing strips or the more aggressive cyanoacrylate method used by dermatologists.
Squeezing blackheads and whiteheads can remove them, but it can also damage the skin. Doing so increases the risk of causing or transmitting infection and scarring, as well as potentially pushing any infection deeper into the skin. Comedo extractors are used with careful hygiene in beauty salons and by dermatologists, usually after using steam or warm water.
Complementary medicine options for acne, in general, have not been shown to be effective in trials. These include:
- Aloe vera
- Pyridoxine (vitamin B6)
- Fruit-derived acids
- Kampo (Japanese herbal medicine)
- Ayurvedic herbal treatments
Some acne treatments target infection specifically, but there are treatments that are aimed at the formation of comedones as well. Others remove the dead layers of the skin and may help clear blocked pores.
Dermatologists can often extract open comedones with minimal skin trauma, but closed comedones are more difficult. Laser treatment for acne might reduce comedones, but dermabrasion and laser therapy have also been known to cause scarring.
Macrocomedones can be removed by a dermatologist using surgical instruments or cauterized with a device that uses light. The acne drug isotretinoin can cause severe flare-ups of macrocomedones, so dermatologists recommend removal before starting the drug and during treatment.
Some research suggests that the common acne medications retinoids and azelaic acid are beneficial and do not cause increased pigmentation of the skin. If using a retinoid, sunscreen is recommended.
Comedo Rare conditions (मुहासा की दुर्लभ स्थिति)
Favre–Racouchot syndrome occurs in sun-damaged skin and includes open and closed comedones.
Nevus comedonicus or comedo nevus is a benign hamartoma (birthmark) of the pilosebaceous unit around the oil-producing gland in the skin. It has widened open hair follicles with dark keratin plugs that resemble comedones, but they are not actually comedones.
Dowling-Degos disease is a genetic pigment disorder that includes comedo-like lesions and scars.
Familial dyskeratotic comedones is a rare autosomal dominant genetic condition, with keratotic (tough) papules and comedo-like lesions.
Comedo Ayurveda Treatment (मुहासा के आयुर्वेद उपचार)
When Pitta is aggravated, we are repetitively drawn to eating Pitta aggravating food. If you respond to this call and eat junk food and sharp and spicy food, you are also reducing the body’s ability to metabolize food properly. As metabolism is impaired, there is an internal build-up of Ama/toxins.
Once we have tackled the diet and adopted the right lifestyle practices to control excess Pitta, we look at specific herbs and products that Ayurveda recommends for Pitta aggravated skin.
To counter excessive pitta, Ayurveda suggests using specific, pitta balancing herbs. These herbs counterbalance Pitta in the skin surface by using sweet and bitter qualities to pacify aggravated Pitta.
Therefore herbs famously used for Pitta aggravated skin are:
- Usheera (Vetiver)
- Chandana (Sandal)
- Sariva (Indian Sarsaparilla)
- Avartaki (Cassia auriculata)
- Bilwa, etc
Comedo Home Remedies (मुहासा के लिए घरेलू उपचार)
It is important to wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 when trying home treatments for whiteheads, as most make the skin more sensitive to the sun:
Facial steam (चेहरे की भाप)
A person affected by whiteheads can try boiling some water, putting it in a bowl, and then holding the affected area of their body over the bowl.
In the case of the head and neck area, they can create a steam tent by putting a towel over their head, to concentrate the steam onto their upper body.
Apple cider vinegar (सेब का सिरका)
Two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed with 8 ounces (oz) of warm water can be applied directly to the affected skin and left on for 20 minutes. This routine can be repeated whenever the face is washed.
Lemon juice (नींबू का रस)
Lemon juice can be used undiluted or diluted with equal parts of water. In either case, it can be applied directly to the affected area of the body using a cotton pad or clean fingers and left on for 20 minutes.
Tea tree oil (चाय के पेड़ का तेल)
Pure tea tree oil extract can also be bought at most drug stores or online and can be applied directly to the affected skin using a clean finger or cotton pad.
It can be used by heating a tablespoon of honey in the microwave for 15 seconds or until it is slightly warm to the touch. After the skin has been cleaned, the warmed honey can be applied directly and left on for 15 minutes. This routine can be repeated as often as necessary.
Witch hazel (विच हैज़ल)
Witch hazel is often found in facial or body washes and toners. It can also be purchased online as an astringent and applied to the skin using a clean finger or cotton pad.
Astringents are known to cause irritation and dryness, so it is best if witch hazel products are used just once a day and more often only if necessary.
Vitamin A and mild retinoid creams (विटामिन ए और हल्के रेटिनोइड क्रीम)
Vitamin ‘A’ helps promote skin growth, reduces inflammation, and is a strong antioxidant. Many facial creams and washes contain vitamin A. It can also be purchased as a pure oil and applied directly to the skin.
Retinoid creams contain stronger forms of vitamin A. Some mild retinoid creams, such as adapalene, are available over the counter or online. These creams should be applied to the whole face.
A person can start using the treatment every second night for a week before increasing treatments to once daily.
Retinoids make the skin very sensitive to the Sun so it may be safest to use the product before bed rather than during daylight hours.
