Acne is a skin condition that manifests as various types of bumps including whiteheads, black heads, pimples, and cysts. When the pores of the skin become blocked with too much oil,dead skin cells, and / or bacteria, the result is Acne.


Factors including heredity, stress, hormonal changes, medications, birth control pills, heat, sun, humidity, friction against the skin, cosmetics/moisturizers, and some industrial chemicals can all trigger an outbreak.


There are several types of acne lesions. The basic lesion is a comedone which is a sebaceous gland blocked by oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. A closed comedone is a small skin-colored bump under the skin, an open comedone has a surface opening filled with black debris called black heads. When inflammation is situated deeper in the pore, a nodule (a firm red painful bump, deep under the skin) is produced. This nodule may grow and become a cyst which is a deep cavity filled with pus.
