What causes severe acne in a patient with iga blood deficiency?
Could there be any association with a lack of IgA and the acne? When I was a young woman I had no IgA and I did have acne, diarrhea, sinus infections, and yeast infections. The IgA levels are much better now and my IgG level is low. I am wondering if the IgA has gone back down again. THe levels will be retested in September.
Yes, IgA could be associated with acne!
Hi! thanks for your health query!
Well, IgA is generally associated with secreted antibodies and therefore it prevents infections in the ducts, gut, and tubal systems like respiratory tracts, mouth, nose etc and of course, it is also associated with sebaceous secretions and thereby prevents skin infections. Lack of IgA therefore might reduce the power to prevent skin infection and thereby increase the incidence of acne /pustules formation.
You may see an immunologist to confirm the cause of this kind of deficiency as there are so many causes;
