What is ACNE?

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. It typically affects areas of the skin that are rich in oil glands, such as the face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders. Acne can manifest in different forms, ranging from mild to severe, and can cause various types of blemishes on the skin.


Sebaceous glands in the skin produce an oily substance called sebum. In individuals with acne-prone skin, these glands tend to produce excessive amounts of sebum, leading to oilier skin and contributing to the development of acne.

When the production of sebum is excessive, it can mix with dead skin cells and other impurities, clogging the pores. This creates an environment favorable for the growth of acne-causing bacteria.

The bacterium Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is naturally present on the skin. However, in individuals with acne, there is an overgrowth of these bacteria within the clogged pores. P. acnes releases substances that contribute to inflammation and the formation of acne lesions.

When the pores are clogged and bacteria multiply, the body's immune system responds by triggering an inflammatory response. This inflammation causes redness, swelling, and the formation of acne lesions.

Some medications, such as corticosteroids or hormonal treatments, can trigger or worsen acne. Additionally, using certain cosmetics or skincare products that are comedogenic (tend to clog pores) can contribute to the development of acne.

Symptoms of Acne Infection

  • Comedones are non-inflammatory acne lesions. They can appear as blackheads or whiteheads. Blackheads are small, dark bumps that form when pores are clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Whiteheads, on the other hand, are small, flesh-colored bumps that develop when pores are clogged but remain closed.
  • Papules are small, raised, red bumps on the skin. They are usually tender to the touch and are caused by inflammation and infection of the hair follicles.
  • Pustules are similar to papules, but they have a white or yellowish center filled with pus. They are often referredto as pimples and can be painful and inflamed.
  • Nodules are larger, deeper, and more severe acne lesions. They are firm, painful, and located deep within the skin. Nodules can be quite persistent and may lead to scarring.
