What is Acne?

occurs when hair follicles are covered with fat and dead skin cells, causing white spots, blackheads or pimples. Depending on the condition and severity of the acne, these signs may occur:

  • Whiteheads (closed clogged pores)
  • Blackheads (open clogged pores)
  • Small red and tender bumps (papules)
  • Pimples (pustules or papules with pus on the tips)
  • Large, painful and solid lumps under the skin (nodules)
  • Painful lumps the skin (cystic lesions)

Currently, many adolescents experience a series of physical and mental changes as their bodies are transformed into adults and some of these changes are manifested in the skin, especially in the form of acne. As the levels of testosterone increase, in both boys and girls, the skin responds by producing more fat through the sebaceous glands.

Sometimes these glands are clogged, producing comedones or cysts, or are infected producing active acne lesions, especially on the face, chest and back. There is no really effective technology to fight acne, but currently, creams and oral drugs are the best remedy to effectively eliminate it.

Despite those inconveniences, acne is usually an easy-to-treat skin disease.
