One of the most common chronic skin conditions in the United States, this condition can affect both adolescents and adults, and in many cases does not go away on its own. Acne is characterized by:
While it is most common on the face, this condition can also appear on the back, chest, neck, shoulders, upper arms, and buttocks.
What Causes Acne?
Acne is primarily caused when the pores in the skin become clogged. Typically this happens when dead skin cells become trapped inside of the pores instead of rising to the surface and being shed by the body. Acne can also develop as a result of the P. acnes bacteria on the skin causing infection inside of the pores and causing inflammation. Deeper infections can also cause cysts and nodules to appear on the skin surface.
