Acne is not only a skin disorder but it can also influence how a person behaves and interacts with others in society. A person who is affected by acne and pimples might be constantly conscious or pre-occupied with the lingering thought of what others are going to think about them and their looks. Acne and pimples certainly don’t look good and might spoil the beauty of your face or body to some extent. This is a major reason for worrying among affected people and can sometimes lead to phobia as well.
It can create a state of being always conscious about how they look and what others think about them: whether someone is making fun of their acne, whether someone is going to ignore him, whether someone is disgusted and think he is dirty etc. The list of negative thoughts goes on. This constant thinking certainly affects how a person behaves and mingles with others. He would not be able to concentrate on what he is supposed to concentrate on, do things properly or behave nicely with people.
People who suffer from acne and pimples often have feelings of jealousy and anger within them. They might be aware or unaware of their feeling but this holds true for 90% of acne affected population. They always feel themselves inferior to others and thus a deep feeling of anger always flares up in their mind. A person who suffers from acne always compares himself to someone who is not a sufferer. They may not feel able to apply for a job or ask someone out on a date.
A person might not feel confident and suffer from depression as well. Some might even stop mixing up with people and abstain from socializing. The social effects of acne can be vast. In summary, a person might not be able to develop and portray the potential within himself. A depressed person can never do due justice to his job, talent or personal relationships.
The most affected age group are teenagers who take acne and pimples very seriously. Acne normally develops between the age of 13-19 due to certain hormonal changes in the body. So, acne might not be major medical problem, but it can lead to serious mental complications. So, if you feel that acne is changing the way you behave or think, then you should certainly seek treatment, to avoid further suffering, shyness, anxiety, depression or loss of confidence.
Acne is definitely treatable and simply changing your life style and diet can eliminate acne for good. You can always turn to medical treatments if needed. Abstinence from social interaction, being sad and comparing yourself will definitely not cure you from pimple. Acne is a problem which can be controlled if not cured and should definitely not change the way you are.
