What is acne?

Acne is a chronic, inflammatory condition of the skin with pimples and pimples, especially on the face, shoulders, back, neck, chest and upper arms.

Observing and dealing with pimples

Acne is the most common of all skin conditions. It is a situation that creates blocked resources. Pimples affect most teenagers and many adults. They occur most often on the face, but also appear on the back, neck, shoulders and chest.

Pimples are a disorder of the sebaceous glands. They usually start when hormone levels rise (especially in adolescents), these glands become overstimulated and so extra sebum is produced. This excess material, along with other factors, causes blockage in the gland and forms the basis of the sticky material commonly found in closed and open cavities.

This blockage can also lead to bacterial overgrowth. This is the basis for the red, inflammatory lesions that are common in severe cases of acne.

How do we feel when we have pimples?

Almost all of us have experienced or know someone who has experienced the psychological effects of acne. Studies have concluded that some of the common emotions between people with pimples are: social withdrawal, low self-esteem, embarrassment, feelings of depression, anger, irritability.

In addition, because acne can cause permanent scarring, these effects can last a lifetime. It is important to remember, however, that no one needs to suffer from pimples. It is an extremely treatable condition that dermatologists are trained to help manage and control.

How many types of acne pimples are there?
