Overview

Acne is a common skin disorder that affects almost all teenagers in puberty. It usually occurs when hair follicles plug with oil and dead skin cells. It is caused by bacteria and has various types of symptoms such as uninflamed blackheads to pus-filled pimples or large, red and tender bumps. Acne can be prevented or treated by using counter creams and cleanser. Acne treatment can be effectively done by bringing a change in your lifestyle or by simply taking a good care of your skin.

Acne symptoms and signs may vary according to your age and also depending on the severity of your condition. Following are the symptoms of acne:

  • Whiteheads (Closed plugged pores) and Blackheads (Open plugged pores)
  • Small red, tender, bumps
  • Pimples – Papules with pus at their tips
  • Nodules – Large, solid and painful lumps beneath the surface of your skin
  • Cystic Lesions – Pus filled painful lumps beneath the surface of the skin

Acne Causes

There are numerous factors that can cause acne on your skin. It occurs when sebaceous (oil) glands attached to the hair follicles are stimulated at the time of puberty due to hormonal changes. The plugged hair follicles gradually increase in size and producing a bump.

Following factors can cause acne:

This can be when severe acne flares suddenly, for mild acne that just won't go away. Acne treatment is necessary even when a single pimple decides to show up.Acne treatment work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection or reducing inflammation.

Acne & Hormonal Factors

Sometimes acne is also called as hormonal acne because of the way the skin problem develops in response to hormonal changes such as a rise in androgens. The rise in androgen levels can trigger a process of production of higher sebum which brings changes in skin cell activity causes inflammation, which finally leads to development of acne.
