Acne is an unsightly and often disfiguring skin disorder that is characterized by an inflammation of the skin glands and hair follicles. It is thought to be highly associated with changes in glandular structure and function during puberty. Can appear as a single or cluster of red bumps and it can be accompanied with varying degrees of swelling and pain when there is severe inflammation. Although is most prevalent on the face, can form on all parts of the body including the back, chest, shoulders, neck and buttocks. It often has negative social consequences including scarring and discoloration that can appear as a result of prolonged, widespread outbreaks or physical attempts to pick at the pimp or mechanically squeezing it in order to “pop” the pimple.
There is still debate among physicians regarding all the factors that contribute. Changes in glandular size and function and an excessive production of the hormone androgen during adolescence, however, are thought to be a prime cause of acne in teens and 20-somethings. With excessive oil production also comes the increased risk of clogged pores, follicles, and oil ducts, all of which can produce acne breakouts. There may also be a genetic factor.
