 Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. 

Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages. Effective acne treatments are available, but acne can be persistent.

It is mainly caused by:

•Excess oil production(sebum)

•Hair follicles clogged by dead cells and oil

•bacteria

•inflamation

Effects of acne are, it can cause emotional distress and also scar the face. The earlier you start treatment the less the chances of such.

Acne commonly appear on the face, forehead chest, upper back and shoulders.

If home remedies don't clear your acne, see your primary care doctor. If acne persists or is severe, you may want to seek medical treatment from a doctor who specializes in the skin (dermatologist or pediatric dermatologist).

For many women, acne can persist for decades, with flares common a week before menstruation. This type of acne tends to clear up without treatment in women who use contraceptives.

In older adults, a sudden onset of severe acne may signal an underlying disease requiring medical attention.

The Food and Drug Administration warns that some popular nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products can cause a serious reaction. This type of reaction is rare, so don't confuse it with any redness, irritation or itchiness that occurs. Common myths about acne

•Acne is caused by eating chocolate and greasy foods

•Hygiene. Acne is not caused by dirty skin.

•Cosmetics. Especially when you use oil free make up.


Seek emergency medical help when you use skin products and experience the following:

•faintness

•Difficulty in breathing

•swelling of the eyes, face, lips or tongue

•Tightness of the throat.
