What is Acne?

Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that comes in various forms, such as pimples, whiteheads, cysts, and blackheads. It usually appears on the face, chest, and back, primarily triggered by medications, stress, hormones, genetics, and the menstrual cycle.

The condition usually starts during puberty, but it can occur at any age. Around 85% of people between 12 and 24 years old have experienced acne. It comes in four types:

  • Comedones – These non-inflammatory acne lesions may either be closed (whiteheads) or open (blackheads).
  • Nodular Acne – These are acne lesions, which could develop into larger and tenderer nodules.
  • Nodulocystic Acne – Also referred to as cysts, these are deep lesions filled with fluid, which develop along with nodules.
  • Inflammatory Acne – When comedones turn into termed papules, they become more tender and angry red.
