What is Acne?

Acne, or pimples, is the commonest skin disease affecting almost 85% of teens at least once in their lifetime. It is a disease of the hair unit of the skin involving the oil producing sebaceous glands situated beside the hair. The sebaceous glands discharge their oily secretions into the hair canal.

Androgen hormones act on the sebaceous glands at puberty and increase their size and sebum (oil) production. The normal function of sebum is to keep the skin smooth and supple by providing an oily environment. Increased sebum secretion and the action of certain bacteria inside the hair canal results in acne formation.

The following series of articles will discuss about different types of acne and modalities of treatment of acne and its complications.
