Acne is a disease which affects the skin’s oil glands. When the follicle of a skin gland clogs up, a pimple grows. Acne is generally seen on the face but few could get acne on back, chest, neck and shoulders too. People of all races get acne but it is more common among teenagers and young adults. Some people in their 40’s and fifties could also get acne. Most common type of acne is seen as whiteheads, blackheads, small pink bumps on face which sometimes could have pus within it. Large cyst type acnes are deep, painful and filled with pus. During puberty, both boys and girls produce high levels of androgens, the male sex hormones that include testosterone. Testosterone signals the body to make more sebum, the oil produced in the skin's oil glands. Excess sebum clogs the oil gland and a pimple grows. Bacteria could grow in these clogged follicles which cause pus, the most common bacteria is Propionibacterium acnes. Other reasons could be starting or stopping birth control pills, hormonal changes during pregnancy, PCOS, certain type of medicines, usage of low quality greasy cosmetics and Stress.
