A disease of the skin in areas where sebaceous glands are present in greater
numbers (the face, back and chest). The follicular opening thickens, sebum
production increases, bacterial infection occurs and the glands become inflamed.
Typically blackheads and whiteheads (open and closed comedo) occur, inflamed
papules, pustules and cysts are also present in relatively moderate cases. As
soon as bacteria is present acne spreads like a rash, and the cycle could
continue for a long time.
Considerable scarring can be expected in
moderate cases and in severe cases the scarring can be extreme pock-marking.
Adolescent acne has a high probability of reducing on maturity but should be
treated to avoid unsightly scarring of the face.
