What is Acne?
Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances produced by the skin's oil glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) are the anaerobic bacteria that cause acne. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring.
Acne is very common in teenager, but some older individuals do get affected. Boys are more commonly affected than girls. Acne usually affects the face but may also affect the back, neck and chest. The severity can range from mild to severe. About 80% of teenagers develop some degree of acne. However, an estimate of about 3 in 10 teenagers would need acne treatments to prevent scarring.
