What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition characterized by pimples, blackheads and inflammation on the skin. Acne mainly affects teenagers and young adults, but it can occur at any age.

Acne occurs when the pores of the skin become clogged due to excessive production of sebum (oil) and dead skin cells. This can lead to the formation of blackheads and pimples. If the pores become inflamed due to the growth of bacteria on the skin, it can lead to red, swollen pimples that can be painful.

There are several factors that contribute to the development of acne, such as hormonal changes, stress, diet and genetic predisposition. Some medications, such as steroids and birth control pills, can also contribute to the development of acne.

Several treatment options are available for acne, including topical and oral medications, light therapy, and skin care products designed to treat and prevent acne. It is important to choose the right treatment option that suits the severity of the acne and the person's individual needs. It is also important to have a healthy lifestyle with a good skin care routine and a balanced diet to help prevent acne breakouts.
