Acne is a disease in which the hair in the follicle, skin cells, and sebum (an oily, waxy substance secreted by the oil glands in the skin) clump together and create a plug. As bacteria grows under the skin, unable to be naturally expelled through the follicle, the area swells and a pimple is produced. There are several different types of pimples, and many people with acne have one or more of these blemishes.
They include whiteheads, blackheads, small pink bumps (papules), pustules, nodules (deep skin pimples) and cysts. A severe case of acne often leaves the skin with visible scars and discolored areas. People of all racial backgrounds and ages can suffer from acne, but the largest percentage of people with acne are between 11 and 30. Genetics plays a role in the development of acne.
Every person has a unique situation, with many different types of skin with a range of problems and conditions.
