Acne or pimples is a skin condition which happens when hair follicles (roots) are blocked with oil and dead skin cells. It is usually seen in adolescents or teenagers but can affect anyone at any age. Acne most often appears on the face, neck, chest, shoulders and back. Acne may vary from blackheads and whiteheads that are minor and painless to severely painful and irritatingly persistent. Acne lesions recover slowly and gradually, and when one starts to clear up, others appear.

Depending on its severity, acne may cause emotional distress and lead to skin damage. The good news is that effective treatments are available – and the earlier treatment is started, the lower your chance of lasting emotional and physical damage.
