Acne is the most known dermatological problem…
and there are many myths surrounding it. A common myth is that it will pass with time, which is not the case.
When the body produces a lot of sebum, the dead cells “get stuck” inside the pore and, instead of rising to the surface, get trapped inside it. This is how the black and white spots are created.
Many times the bacteria that live on our skin (p.acnes bacteria) also enter the pore, which is the ideal environment for them to grow very quickly and cause inflammation. The pore becomes red and swells and if the inflammation progresses deep into the skin nodules and cysts are formed.
