Acne Vulgaris

Acne is a common skin condition which occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead cells. This results in inflammation and tissue destruction causing painful, red nodules or black, obstructed hair follicles, accumulation of septic material due to secondary bacterial infection and ultimately scarring of tissue and permanent marks on the area affected. It usually appears on face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. Acne most of the time is persistent, it heals slowly and when one begins to go away another one seems to crop up. Most affected with acne are people between age 12 and 25. Some older and younger people are also affected.

What Causes Acne?

Acne appears when a pore in the skin clogs up. It all begins with dead skin cells. Normally dead skin cells are shed off. When the body starts to make lots of sebum (oil), dead skin cells stick together and clogs up the pore. This creates a perfect environment for the bacteria present on the skin to invade and grow. When the bacterial load increases the pore becomes red and swollen. If the inflammation goes deep into the skin, acne cyst or nodule may appear.

Shall I allow my acne to run its course?

Although acne is not a condition of any life threatening significance, letting acne run its course is not always the best possible advice. For some, it can a major cosmetic challenge as it can be disfiguring and painful. Without treatment dark spots and permanent scars can appear on the skin. These can add up to undermine the confidence of the adolescent and lead to a poor estimate of body image.
