Acne is a skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads, blemishes or pimples, and usually appears on the face, such as the forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.
Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages. P. acnes, a gram-positive bacterium is involved in the pathogenesis of acne. Effective acne treatments are available, but acne can be persistent. The pimples and bumps heal slowly, and when one begins to go away, others can form.
