Acne is a common skin condition which results in pimples, cysts and nodules. Though acne is commonly found among adolescents, adults can also suffer from acne as well.
Acne is caused by a blockage in a hair follicle. The clogged follicle enlarges and fills with sebum (oil) and forms a bump. These bumps can then become colonized with bacteria which incites inflammation. Acne most often occurs in areas with high concentrations of hair follicles and oil glands, such as the face, chest and back. While acne tends to gradually improve, it may cause scarring if not addressed properly. Acne may also be aggravated by hormonal factors and certain cosmetics.
