Acne is a common skin condition that affects people at some point in their life, and while more common in teenagers it can affect many adults as well. It causes spots, oily skin and can sometimes lead to scarring and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. There are different types of acne including whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, nodules and cystic lesions. Acne can be hereditary but also can be caused by other factors such as excess sebum (oil) production in the follicles and also bacteria and hormones. Acne most often affects the face, but it may spread to involve the neck, chest and back. It can have a significant impact on your emotional well-being, especially if it results in scarring.
