Acnefree Burning Sensation Causes and Reviews


What is chlamydia?

Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease. It is caused by bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis. It can infect both men and women. Women can get chlamydia in the cervix, rectum, or throat. Men can get chlamydia in the urethra (inside the penis), rectum, or throat.

How do you get chlamydia?

You can get chlamydia during oral, vaginal, or anal sex with someone who has the infection. A woman can also pass chlamydia to her baby during childbirth.

If you've had chlamydia and were treated in the past, you can get re-infected if you have unprotected sex with someone who has it.

Who is at risk of getting chlamydia?

Chlamydia is more common in young people, especially young women. You are more likely to get it if you don't consistently use a condom, or if you have multiple partners.

What are the symptoms of chlamydia?

Chlamydia doesn't usually cause any symptoms. So you may not realize that you have it. People with chlamydia who have no symptoms can still pass the disease to others. If you do have symptoms, they may not appear until several weeks after you have sex with an infected partner.

Symptoms in women include

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge, which may have a strong smell
  • A burning sensation when urinating
  • Pain during intercourse

If the infection spreads, you might get lower abdominal pain, pain during sex, nausea, or fever.

Symptoms in men include

  • Discharge from your penis
  • A burning sensation when urinating
  • Burning or itching around the opening of your penis
  • Pain and swelling in one or both testicles (although this is less common)

If the chlamydia infects the rectum (in men or women), it can cause rectal pain, discharge, and/or bleeding.

How do I know if I have chlamydia?

There are lab tests to diagnose chlamydia. Your health care provider may ask you to provide a urine sample. For women, providers sometimes use (or ask you to use) a cotton swab to get a sample from your vagina to test for chlamydia.

Who should be tested for chlamydia?

You should go to your health provider for a test if you have symptoms of chlamydia, or if you have a partner who has a sexually transmitted disease. Pregnant women should get a test when they go to their first prenatal visit.

People at higher risk should get checked for chlamydia every year:

  • Sexually active women 25 and younger
  • Older women who have new or multiple sex partners, or a sex partner who has a sexually transmitted disease
  • Men who have sex with men (MSM)
What are the complications of chlamydia?

In women, an untreated infection can spread to your uterus and fallopian tubes, causing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID can cause permanent damage to your reproductive system. This can lead to long-term pelvic pain, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy. Women who have had chlamydia infections more than once are at higher risk of serious reproductive health complications.

Men often don't have health problems from chlamydia. Sometimes it can infect the epididymis (the tube that carries sperm). This can cause pain, fever, and, rarely, infertility.

Both men and women can develop reactive arthritis because of a chlamydia infection. Reactive arthritis is a type of arthritis that happens as a "reaction" to an infection in the body.

Babies born to infected mothers can get eye infections and pneumonia from chlamydia. It may also make it more likely for your baby to be born too early.

Untreated chlamydia may also increase your chances of getting or giving HIV/AIDS.

What are the treatments for chlamydia?

Antibiotics will cure the infection. You may get a one-time dose of the antibiotics, or you may need to take medicine every day for 7 days. Antibiotics cannot repair any permanent damage that the disease has caused.

To prevent spreading the disease to your partner, you should not have sex until the infection has cleared up. If you got a one-time dose of antibiotics, you should wait 7 days after taking the medicine to have sex again. If you have to take medicine every day for 7 days, you should not have sex again until you have finished taking all of the doses of your medicine.

It is common to get a repeat infection, so you should get tested again about three months after treatment.

Can I prevent chlamydia?

The only sure way to prevent chlamydia is to not have vaginal, anal, or oral sex.

Correct usage of latex condoms greatly reduces, but does not eliminate, the risk of catching or spreading chlamydia.

Acnefree Burning Sensation Reviews

Mon, 04 Nov 2013

Just got on AcneFree 2 days ago and now experiencing minor redness and irritation over zits. The key word is minor. Judging from other reviews, hopefully this is just a skin adjustment. So far, a great product.

This exact same thing happened to me! I had been using AcneFree for many years without problems. Then the last two bottles I've used have been causing the sides of my nose and the outer nostrils to flake and itch. It's like I have eczema there. My skin gets tight, itchy and red now, so I only use it every few days to keep my skin clear. When not using it I use CeraVe moisturizer which helps heal my skin between AcneFree applications. Something has been changed in the formula. I've lived through all the issues they had creating the perfect product. Then they finally got it perfect. Now they've ruined it. It's too strong. I might try their sensitive skin version next time just to see if it's more like the old stuff.

I bought this product a few days ago and applied it that night like it said. I made sure to read all the directions as instructed because it was my first time using this product. Long story short.... I woke up the next morning and I had swollen eyes that had bags! OMG never had any wrinkles or bags on my face EVER! I couldn't understand wth was happening. I read the active ingredents which was benzoyl- peroxide over 3%. I didnt know if it was because it was micro sized and released for over 24hrs or something else. I also use Natures Cure for Women on and off (it WORKS and I love it) and the cream that comes with it has 5% benzoyl peroxide; to which I've never had any side effects to. This only leads me to think its something else in this product that irritates and swells my skin. While applying the face wash i noticed my skin had a raw feeling, like when you exfoliate. The product did reduce the size of my small pimples and smooth out the even smaller ones. But at the cost of swollen wrinkly that looks like I have a pack of weenies underneath, NO THANKS! Im sure there is something else that work for me out there. I'm returning this to walmart and getting my $ back!

I have used Acne Free for years now and I have very sensitive skin. I have never had a problem with redness or burning. It sounds like the people that have had those issues are obvious allergic to something in the product and common knowledge would be not to use it. I mean come on seriously a law suit...really????. I guess I should draw one up against Clearasil because when I used their product I had gotten a mild chemical burn/allergic reaction from using their product. I learned not to use the product again. It took me a long time to find a product that had worked for me and this would be the one. I use the severe kit and my face has been perfectly clear after a week of use. I cannot say enough good things about this product and I do recommend it to everyone.

I have used AcneFree for about five years. I was really impressed with
how well it worked. However, I am not so happy now. About a month ago I
purchased a new box of AcneFree. After a week of using it, I developed
an allergic reaction. My face became red and swollen right on either
side of my nose and continued down to my chin and jaw line. My skin
itched and burned. And my dry skin would peel off in thick layers
exposing raw inflamed sores. I would like to continue using this
product, but these new side effects have forced me to search for a new
acne treatment.

I started using AcneFree four days ago and my skin has developed mini-bumps(not acne), slight redness close to my eyes, anditchiness. I'm going to use it for a couple more days, if the mini-bumps don't go, I'm throwing to stuff out. I don't know if I should have been using it in the first place, though. I do have acne (went to the doctor) but it's only a few bumps here and there. The blackheadsdisappearquickly, so that's not a worry. I guess I only bought it because suddenly a bunch popped up out of nowhere on my face, on my jaw and neck. My period can't be that reason, for I already had itearlierthis month.
