Acne is a common skin condition. It is characterized by pimples that appear on the face, back and chest and is believed to affect mainly adolescents but that does not mean that adults are immune to it.
Acne is made up of six types of blemishes:
Blackheads: Open bumps on the skin that fill with excess oil and dead skin.
Whiteheads: Bumps that remain closed by oil and dead skin.
Papules: Small red or pink bumps that become inflamed.
Pustules: Pimples containing pus.
Nodules: Large, solid, painful lumps under the skin
Cystic Lesions: Painful, pus-filled lumps under the skin.
Prescription topical and oral medications are available.
Morpheous8 and Laser treatments can also be used for treatment.
