Acne vulgaris, simply known as acne, is the medical term for an extreme form of zits and/or pimples. Almost everyone gets acne during puberty. For one it is just a few little pimples, for the other it is an extensive skin condition that can spoil their pleasure of daily life.
Causes and Consequences
Acne is caused by an inflammation of the skin around the sebaceous glands (sebaceous follicles). Various factors play a part in its development. In most cases, acne starts during puberty as the skin undergoes all kinds of changes influenced by changing hormones. The sebaceous glands in the face, back and chest become larger and produce more sebum, which is also thicker in composition. Because its thicker and there is more of it, it is difficult to release and it accumulates which then turns into an inflammation of the skin that manifests itself in pimples, zits, blackheads, red spots, or dander in combination with very dry or oily skin. Your skin feels hypersensitive and easily irritated.
