What is Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that occurs when the oil-secreting glands in the skin are clogged and become inflamed or infected. Sometimes, the hair, sebum, and skin cells clump together into a plug. The bacteria in the plug cause swelling. Then when the plug starts to break down, a pimple grows. In humans, when pimples appear they tend to do so on the patient's face, back, chest, shoulders and neck.

How to Treat Acne?
Early treatment is the best way to prevent scars. Your doctor may suggest over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription drugs. Some acne medicines are put right on the skin. Other medicines are pills that you swallow. The doctor may tell you to use more than one medicine.

Several products may be used to help prevent pimples or blackheads. Treatment usually begins with putting products containing benzoyl peroxide on the areas of skin with acne. If benzoyl peroxide alone is not effective, then antibiotic medications are needed, or your health care provider may prescribe antibiotics to be taken by mouth. You may also need to use a skin cream or gel containing tretinoin (Retin-A). These treatments try to: 
• Heal pimples 
• Stop new pimples from forming 
• Prevent scarring
• Help reduce the embarrassment of having acne.

What is Eczema?
Eczema is a chronic, itchy inflammation of the skin that may coincide with allergic responses and asthma. Eczema often appears in children as a bumpy, itchy rash on the hands, feet, neck, back of the knees and inside of the elbows. In adults, the rash can cover more of the body and the face. In time, the rash can crust over and even develop into thick, scaly patches.

How to Treat Eczema?At home try wearing cotton clothing, applying a cool wet compress and moisturizing lotions. Doctors may prescribe creams with cortisone, oral and injected corticosteroids, antibiotics to fight skin infections, and topical immunomodulators to reduce allergic responses. Oral antihistamines and light therapy can also reduce symptoms.
