FAQ – Commonly Asked Questions Regarding AKN
How do you treat AKN?
Commonly, AKN is treated through creams and ointments, antibiotics, steroid gels, or steroid injections. Still, dermatologists often use these methods to treat AKN; in most cases, these do not work. In some cases, treating AKN with creams and ointments can make it worse.
In Dr. U’s clinic, his proven method of successful permanent AKN removal stems from either regular surgery, laser surgery (which cuts and removes the bumps permanently), and in extreme cases of AKN where AKN plaques, merged nodules, papules, and tumorous masses are so large that it could only be removed by radiation therapy.
Some of the examples of notable, successful AKN patients that have been treated through this method can be seen below:
Is Acne Keloidalis Nuachae painful?
The inflamed bumps recognizable as AKN can grow larger and larger, and often as the condition worsens over time, it can become much more painful.
AKN nodules are known to pop and bleed, sometimes several times a day.
These AKN bumps can merge without adequate treatment and create even worse bumps or plaques.
Therefore, treating AKN as soon as possible is highly recommended to avoid further pain, worsening of the condition, and the medical costs associated with treating it.
