Acne is a kind of skin disorder which is chronic and quite common world over. It mainly appears at face and neck but can be found on shoulders, chest and back. Acne can be in various forms of bumps like whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. Whiteheads break out and become infected, swollen and inflamed. This infection can spread and can leave life long scarring.
It is caused by increased level of hormone testosterone during puberty which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. This excess oil gets trapped inside the skin pores. When it gets mixed with dead skin cells, it clogs the pores. Infection occurs when acne causing bacteria, already present on the skin, gets the proper environment for multiplying in the form of oil and dead cells. It causes swelling, inflammation and pain in pimples.
The most important thing you should know about acne is that it is not curable as there are various causes of acne and to cure it one should know root cause. But do not lose hope; acne is very much treatable. Symptoms and features of acne can be successfully treated with the help of many medicines available in the market or you can treat it with the help of acne home remedies.
