Acne happens when sebaceous glands produce sebum (oil or the skin’s natural moisturizer) so much that clog pores. Protein will then begin to kill the skin cells, causing the body trying to fight back by causing inflammation and skin area was flooded with white blood cells. The result, there arises a painful acne.
Scientists have done tests on the ear skin of mice, producing antibodies in protein and ‘off’. Rats that had been given doses of bacteria and then treated with an antibody that makes inflammation less. The study also found that the immune system of experimental animals can be stimulated to produce its own antibodies.
