During adolescence, hormonal changes can stimulate these glands to produce excess sebum. This overproduction of sebum on the skin lead to the clogging of hair follicles. Abnormal cell shedding fosters a surface layer of dead cells, merging with heightened sebum levels, thus causing pimples.

What is Acne?

Acne is a skin condition in which the hair follicles beneath the skin become clogged due to natural oil production of skin. This natural oil also called Sebum helps keep skin from drying out, forming a protective layer on the skin's surface that helps to keep the skin hydrated and well moisturised. When there is excess sebum production, it clogs the pores resulting in acne. Acne are also accompanied by pimples. When dead skin cells plug the pores, it leads to outbreaks of lesions, which are called pimples or zits. It often occurs on the face but can also appear on the back, chest, and shoulders.

Acne can be of Different Types!

Blackheads: These are open comedones, small, dark-coloured bumps on the skin's surface.

Whiteheads: Whiteheads are closed comedones, small, white or flesh-coloured bumps on the skin's surface.

Papules: These are small, raised, and often red bumps on the skin.

Pustules: Pustules are small, inflamed, and pus-filled bumps on the skin.

Nodules and cysts: These are severe forms of Acne, large, painful, solid bumps beneath the skin. Nodules and cysts often cause deep inflammation and scarring.

Common Causes of Acne Development

Acne development involves a combination of factors. The common causes of Acne include:

High production of oil in the pore: The buildup of dead skin cells in the pore.

Growth of bacteria in the pore

Overproduction of Sebum: Sebaceous glands in the skin produce sebum, but during puberty and hormonal changes, these glands can produce excessive sebum that can lead to Acne.

Excess production of skin cells: Skin cells undergo a process of shedding and renewal, but for individuals prone to Acne, there is an overproduction of skin cells. These excess cells can plug in the hair follicles with the combination of sebum.

Bacterial Growth: Bacterial growth is usually present on the skin but can multiply rapidly because of clogged follicles, leading to inflammation and severe forms of Acne.

Hormonal changes: Hormonal fluctuations play an important role in acne development. Changes during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, etc., trigger and exacerbate Acne.

Common symptoms of Acne that you can Notice!

Small red, tender bumps: These small, raised, red bumps can be tender to the touch; these are the type of acne lesion and result in inflammation and infection of the hair follicles.

Large, solid, painful lumps (Boils): Boils are painful and pus-filled lumps caused by bacterial infection of hair follicles.

Painful, pus-filled lumps: As the infection progresses, a visible pocket of pus forms at the centre of the bump, leading to a painful, raised lump with a central core of pus.
