What Is Acne?


Acne is characterized by inflammation around glands and hair follicles, and can lead to permanent scarring if left untreated. Many factors play a role in it’s development: excess oil production, obstruction of pores, excess bacterial growth, hormones, medications, and even diet. Acne can range from mild to severe in multiple different forms. It can affect the face, chest, back, and in some cases may be associated with other medical problems. Regardless the type of acne, it does not have to be left untreated.
