What is acne?
Acne is a skin condition that occurs when the oil-secreting
glands in the skin are clogged and become inflamed or infected.
These glands occur mainly on the face, back and chest, so these
areas are the main sites for acne. Acne is associated with increased
grease production, therefore people with acne often notice and complain
of the greasiness of their skin.
What causes acne?
These are controlled by the sex hormones and this is why
acne starts at puberty. However acne is seldom due to an excess
of these hormones but is usually due to an excessive response of
the grease glands to normal hormone levels.
The skin of the face and upper trunk, with or without acne,
contains bacteria. These bacteria get into the ducts of the grease
glands where they make chemicals that eventually penetrate the deeper
parts of the skin. This does not mean acne is infectious. It is
due to the action of normal skin bacteria on the abnormal quantity
and quality of grease produced by acne sufferers.
