While acne is very common among teens, many adults suffer from it too. Both men and women can develop acne until they are 40 years old. Breakouts are quite common in adults as it is in teens. However, most teens tend to outgrow their acne problems. And these lucky few don’t have to deal with them as an adult.
Acne is the collective term given to the range of skin problems usually affecting the face, chest, and back. Whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, and pustules are all Acne in different shapes and form. These skin imperfections are usually caused by the irritated oil glands found on the different parts of the body.
When one gets into the puberty stage, the oil glands get overworked. When bacteria get into the skin pores, the opening of these oil glands is blocked, causing a build up of oil beneath the surface. The bacteria use the oil to propagate, making the tissues around the affected area become inflamed.

As early as the 1930′s it was theorized that constant or repeated exposure to an allergen put exhaustive stress on the body, including the immune system. Ultimately this exposure has a negative effect on the body’s defenses and leaves it open to illness and other medical complications. In addition, these allergens can have a degenerative effect on energy levels which results in chronic fatigue and other more serious health problems. Under the Allergic Tension-Fatigue Syndrome theory if you remove the allergen you will relieve the not only the allergy symptoms but also the underlying medical conditions caused by the drain on energy levels.
While there can always be many potential causes for various illnesses or conditions, one of those causes may be undetected allergies. One of the most common causes for fatigue problems is allergies yet awareness of them may remain hidden for years. Removing the allergen may sound like a simple solution but what if you can’t get away from the allergens? What if you can’t even identify them?

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most usual cause of vaginal infection. It is less generally referred to as vaginal bacteriosis. It is not believed to be a sexually transmitted infection but oftentimes gets after intercourse with a new partner and is more usual in women with multiple partners. BV is caused by an imbalance of naturally occurring bacterial flora and shouldn’t be confused with yeast infection (candidiasis), or infection with Trichomonas vaginalis (trichomoniasis), which are not caused by bacteria. Yeast does not look, nor smell, nor feel like Bacterial Vaginosis. BV is sometimes referred to as Gardnerella; though Gardnerella is really just one of the normal vaginal bacteria found in excess during bacterial vaginosis.
