is the most common problem in teenagers. It is an inflammatory disease
of the sebaceous glands that are present under the skin surface
occurring due to excessive secretion of sebum. Commonly, they are known
as PIMPLES. The most common site is the face, but it is also found in
other areas like the neck, upper arm and back. They present themselves
in the form of papular or pustular eruptions.
The exact cause of acne is unknown but certain factors are present which are responsible for worsening this condition.
There are 2 major types of acne lesions: non-inflammatory and inflammatory.
Non-inflammatory acne lesions include blackheads (open comedones-these are similar to whiteheads, but are open to the skin surface and darken) and whiteheads (closed comedones- these are created when the openings of hair follicles become clogged and blocked with oil secretions and dead skin. If the plugged follicle, or comedo, stays beneath the skin, it is called a closed comedo and produces white bump called a whitehead).
Inflammatory acne lesions consist of red blemishes which are known as pimples and are also called zits (papules, pustules), and larger, deeper swollen tender lesions known as nodules. After healing, they leave a scar mark/s.
We can heal acne / pimples by reducing the frequency and severity until they disappear completely!
