Although breast acne is usually not a serious health threat, it can cause a significant
degree of emotional distress affecting lifestyle. Breast acne is generally indicated
by inflamed pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. In more serious cases, it may be
presented as papules and pustules. It is quite common for women who have larger breasts
to suffer from breast acne.
Possible Causes of Breast Acne
Breast acne are often the result of ingrown hairs on the chest. The hair on chest
are often thin and light colored. When excessive sebum is produced, it clogs pores
and hair follicles on the skin of the breasts gets infected and results in bumps.
Another common cause of breast acne is hormonal fluctuations associated with menstruation
If you experience acne or pimples under breasts after using drugs like and androgens
and lithium, it is recommended to switch to alternative choices.
Excessive perspiration, accumulation of dirt and grease, exposure to polluted air,
and poor hygiene habits may lead to breast acne.
Breast Acne Preventive Methods and Treatment
1. Sports bras restrict the breasts too much that it is impossible for perspiration
to evaporate. As a result, moisture, grease and other harmful skin waste accumulate
and clog pores. I encourage you to choose a bra that allows your skin to breathe
and wear loose comfortable clothing during hot months.
2. Your first line of defense to prevent breast acne is to take a shower as soon
as you can after you perspire profusely. Use soap with anti-bacterial properties
to wash under breast area. Also, exfoliate your skin on chest or breast regularly
with a gentle scrub to remove clogged sebum, dirt and germs. You may want to use
a facial toner to close pores on the affected area and rejuvenate your skin.
3. Dry yourself thoroughly after each shower to remove any moisture on your skin.
4. You can use affordable acne pads such as Clearasil and Stridex to absorb excessive
sebum from your breasts. Choose a pad targeted for sensitive skin to prevent the
skin on your breasts from drying out too much. To use, after your shower and on completely
dry area, rub a pad under each breast.
5. You can also treat breast acne with aloe vera gel or tea tree oil. These natural
remedies have strong antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. Apply
tea tree oil before bed or an hour before your shower. In addition, turmeric, tomato
slices, juice of papaya and fresh garlic can be applied on affected areas to treat
and prevent future breakouts.
6. If your condition persist, please seek professional medical help. Your doctor
will be able to prescribe a stronger medicine to better treat breast acne or breast
Breast acne or pimples under breasts is uncomfortable and can lead to reduced self
esteem. Prevention is better than cure; if mild incidence of breast acne is not attended
to immediately, it can become severe. Therefore, always address the condition as
soon as possible toprevent future serious breakouts.
