What Is Acne?

Acne vulgaris (or simply acne) is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of seborrhea (scaly red skin), comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules (pinheads), nodules (large papules), and pimples.  In adolescence, acne is usually caused by an increase in androgens such as testosterone, which occurs during puberty, regardless of gender.  Acne more often affects skin with a greater number of oil glands; these areas include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back. Severe acne is inflammatory (redness, swelling), but acne can also manifest in non-inflammatory forms. Acne occurs most commonly during adolescence, affecting an estimated 80-90% of teenagers.
