What is acne?
In medical terms it is known as Acne Vulgaris, a very common disease that affects oil glands on the face, chest and back due to accumulation of oil below the skin surface when follicles are blocked. The typical spots and lesions are caused by a hormonal imbalance, which leads to an increase in the production of sebum. Bacteria found in the accumulation cause a swelling.
Acne is not dangerous but can vary from mild (involving few pimples or spots) to severe circumstances, and causes depression and anxiety or lower self-esteem. It can affect anyone of any age, but it mostly affects adolescents.
