Acne is the term used to denote any eruptions on the face of the adolescents. Acne is a disease condition in which the hair follicles are obstructed from drainage of skin dead cells and the oily secretion (sebum). Because of the hair follicles getting filled, papules and pustules are also formed along with the Acneiform eruptions.
There are two variants of Acne
Acne Vulgaris : This is commonly referred to as Acne
Acne Rosacea : Denoted as Rosacea.
Acne Vulgaris : In this variant, Small cysts (comedones) are formed in hair follicles by the accumulation of keratinous material(skin dead cells) and sebum due to the
increase in sebum production by the sebaceous glands after puberty.
Acne vulgaris is commonly distributed on face, upper back and chest. The acne(comedones) are open and closed, reddish papules, pustules and cysts. The closed acne (closed comedones) are called as whitehead and the open acne(open comedones) are called as the blackhead.
Acne Rosacea : Acne Rosacea is found in blush areas of cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. So as to say, Rosacea predominantly affects the central face. Acne appears reddish, with spider-webs like the appearance of veins(telangiectases), papules and pustules.
Rosacea do not have comedones as in Acne Vulgaris.
Causes of Acne:
- Genetic, Hereditary and Environmental factors are responsible for Acne formation.
- Acne Vulgaris is a disease primarily of teenagers and young adults, although in some adults it may continue to form.
- Acne Rosacea is seen exclusively in adults, being more common in women than men.

Acne affects the social life of the patient causing embarrassment. The scarring of acne is temporary or transient but in some cases, severe scarring can be permanent and obvious.
Acne Rosacea, if let untreated or ignored, may lead to rhinophyma, a connective tissue overgrowth.
