Why Do I Have Acne on My Chest and Back?
Simply put, it is the fault of excessive sebum.
As we know, acne is a chronic inflammatory disease of hair follicles and sebaceous glands, and one of the pathogenesis is related to excessive sebum secretion.
The main causes of acne: increased secretion of androgen and sebum, abnormal keratosis of hair follicles and sebaceous glands, propionibacterium acne infection and secondary inflammation.
Some patients are also associated with genetic, immune, endocrine disorders, mood and diet and other factors.
Sebaceous gland & sebaceous area: the sebum above our skin comes from sebaceous gland secretion overflow, can protect and lubricate the skin.
In addition to the face, sebaceous glands are also found in the forehead, nasal alar, scalp, outer ears, vulva, axilla, upper back, and chest.
These places have more sebaceous glands and are called fatty areas.
Like your face, the back and front of your chest have more pores and sebaceous glands than any other area of your body, making you prone to acne, pimples, and peritulokeratosis (goose bumps).
Someone often makes fun of his face is a big oil field, like this situation, the face of sebum secretion is too much, easy to grow acne.
Similarly, the chest and back sebum secretion, also may lead to acne, acne is not "face only."
In short, acne occurs in sebum overflow, including the face, neck, chest, back, etc.
Some common causes of chest breakouts
1. Sweating too much
Summer is the peak season for acne, not only on the face, but also on the chest and back.
Because of the hot weather, the chest will sweat a lot, soaking clothes. If the wet clothes are not washed in time and affixed to the skin for a long time, it is easy to breed bacteria, making the skin infected and breeding acne.
2. Corneous block pores
We often clean the cutin of the face, but it seems that few people noticed the cutin of the chest.
Because of the lack of cleaning, the stratum corneum on the back and chest will be thicker, resulting in clogged pores, inflammation of hair follicles, and breakouts.
3. Endocrine disorders
Endocrine imbalance is a major factor causing acne.
Endocrine system is an important part of regulating human body functions and maintaining the relative stability of the internal environment, if you do not pay attention to the daily diet, often eat spicy, stimulating food, coupled with irregular work and rest, directly lead to endocrine disorders, acne will break out in large numbers.
4. Excessive sebum secretion
In fact, the production of acne has a great relationship with the metabolism of the human body itself. Some waste toxins in the body do not metabolize and accumulate in the skin, and inflammation will be formed for a long time.
And as we mentioned before, the chest sebaceous glands are also more developed, and sebum secretion will block pores, and then acne will appear in the chest.
