Acne or acne vulgaris is a skin problem that arises when oil and dead skin cells clog up your skin pores. When germs get into the pores it can result in pus, swelling and redness. It goes by various names: blackheads, blemishes, whiteheads, pimples or zits.
Few red spots or pimples here and there constitute mild form of acne. Whereas when numerous pimples cover the face, neck and back show up it is called a severe case of acne. Or, it can be bigger painful solid red lumps (cysts). It is common among teens and usually gets better after the teen years. Women who never had acne growing up might have it as an adult right before their menstrual periods.
Acne can appear during the teen years because hormonal changes make the skin oilier after puberty. Using oil based products on the face or skin will make it worse. Then, use only products labeled as non-comedogenic. Acne can be hereditary; if one of your parents have severe acne then you too are more likely to have it.
