What is Acne?

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when the glands, secreting oil in our skin, are clogged and become inflamed or infected. The condition is not alarming and harmful, but can leave scars on skin. Our skin has pores (tiny holes) which connect to oil glands located under the skin through pores via follicles (small canals). Sebum, an oily liquid, is produced by these glands which carries dead skin-cells through the follicles to the surface of our skin. Under normal circumstances a small hair grows through the follicle but when these follicles get blocked, pimples grow out of these follicles.


Cause of Acne

Acne is caused by inflammation or infection of the oil glands of the skin and occurs at the base of hairs. In the teenage years, hormones stimulate the growth of body hair, and the oil glands secrete more oil. The skin pores become clogged and bacteria grow in the clogged pores. When the body works to kill the bacteria, white-heads, blackheads, and pustules form in these areas. Stress, birth control pills, and too little rest can make acne worse.


Symptoms of Acne

  • White-heads, which are plugged oil glands.
  • Blackheads, which are open oil glands (the oil turns black when it's exposed to the air)
  • Pustules, which are red, inflamed, infected plugged oil glands, sometimes filled with pus
