Acne Skin Conditions

Acne is a common inflammatory disease of an over production of sebum or oil of the pilosebacous glands. This production of sebum in the p. glands are mainly caused by hormonal fluctuation, the sebum acts like food for Propionibacterium acnes, the bacteria causing acne.

Hormonal fluctuations occur during menstruation, pregnancy and menopause. Hormonal changes also cause stress, which can make acne worse for those already struggling with that condition. Acne is characterized by papules, pustules, inflammed nodules and superficial pusfilled cysts and may have small white or black heads surrounded by red skin. In severe cases of acne the eruption can run deep into the epithelial layer of the skin leaving scars after the healing process. Acne is found on the face, chest, upper back, upper arms or buttocks.

Acne can become a chronic disease which can cause physiological and also psychological problems.
