Acne is a chronic disorder of the hair follicles and sebaceous glands. When oil or dirt is trapped in one of these hair follicles or pores it can cause an outbreak. It is characterized by pimple outbreaks, cysts, infected abscesses, and sometimes scarring. This disorder is usually found in teenagers, but can still carry on in adulthood. It is actually the most common skin problem in the United States, and is treatable through a variety of different methods and acne treatment.

Is acne an infection?

Short answer is YES. It is a type of infection of the skin, caused by changes in the sebaceous glands. The most common form of it is called vulgaris, which literally means "common acne". So, the redness comes from the inflammation of the skin in response to the infection. Therefore, oils from the glands combine with dead skin cells to block hair follicles.

What are the different symptoms of Acne?

Symptoms range from uninflamed blackheads to pus-filled pimples or large, red, and tender bumps. It can also results in depression and dark spots on the skin.
