What Is Acne?

what is acne?Acne is the most common problem for teenagers and young adults. The causes of acne are still unknown but some resources mention that acne happens during puberty and it occurs because of hormone fluctuation. Acne is a skin condition caused by trapped oil and debris on skin. Hormones called androgens increase in boys and girls during puberty and it makes the skin’s oil glands get larger and make more sebum. Acne usually appears on the face, chest, upper back and shoulders and it can appear as blackheads, whiteheads, papules and cyst (pus-filled pimples).

During puberty, oil-producing glands start producing more sebum and the excess sebum clogged pores which leads to acne. Then, bacteria can easily get trapped inside the pores and multiply. In some people, acne can lead to social phobia, fear of being mocked by others, and even depression. Because typically acne appears on face, people tend to feel embarrassed and uncomfortable with their own skin. To deal with this case, some people have to see dermatologist to get help.
