Acne, referred to as pimples in common language, is a very common skin condition affecting the face, chest, shoulders, back and sometimes scalp. It occurs as a disorder of the oil glands (sebaceous glands) of the skin. The oil produced by these glands is brought to the surface of the skin through small channels which open on the outer surface of the skin in the form of pores. If these pores get blocked due to some underlying abnormality, it can lead to the formation of acne. The blockage may be a result of excessive oil production by the gland, accumulation of the dead skin cells in the pores or residing bacteria known as Propionibacterium Acnes in the affected area.
Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin’s oil glands (sebaceous glands) and hair follicles. These factors lead to plugged pores and outbreaks of lesions commonly called pimples or zits. Acne lesions usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Although acne is usually not a serious health threat, it can be a source of significant emotional distress. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring.
The exact cause of acne is unknown, but doctors believe it results from several related factors. One important factor is an increase in hormones called androgens (male sex hormones). These increase in both boys and girls during puberty and cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge and make more sebum. Hormonal changes related to pregnancy or starting or stopping birth control pills can also cause acne.
Another factor is heredity or genetics. Researchers believe that the tendency to develop acne can be inherited from parents. For example, studies have shown that many school-age boys with acne have a family history of the disorder. Certain drugs, including androgens and lithium, are known to cause acne. Greasy cosmetics may alter the cells of the follicles and make them stick together, producing a plug.
There are many manifestations of the disease ranging from mild to the severe scarring forms encompassing black heads, white heads (open and closed comedones) and nodules. Acne generally occurs in teenagers but 20% of adults may also suffer from acne for the first time in their lives.
