Have you ever noticed that your skin tends to breakout right along the places where you also sweat heavily? Perhaps on your forehead or along your back? If this sounds like you, it could be that you have a form of acne called pityrosporum folliculitis. These breakouts are caused by a form of yeast that is on everyone’s skin, yet some people’s pores are unable to fight off the yeast very well. Add in a sweat laden area and the yeast takes off, creating pimples in its wake.
This is one of the reasons that it is so important to shower right after you have finished working out or have worked up any sort of a sweat. The longer the sweat is allowed to stay on your skin, the longer the yeast has to multiply in these warm moist regions. So get a head start on acne and rinse off after your through exercising! Don’t wait around and let those blemishes creep up on you.
Pityrosporum folliculitis also happens to be a very stubborn form of acne to cure and it often requires more than just frequent bathing.
