What are Acne and Pimple ?

A large number of oil producing glands called “sebaceous glands” are present under the skin on face, back, chest and shoulders. During puberty or menopause due to the influence of the sex hormones, which are produced in male and female, these glands become more active and produce an oily secretion called “sebum”. The sebum makes the skin more oily .The excessive sebum clogs the skin pore or the pit of the hair follicle forming acne.

Apart from this the other causes of acne eruption are
* Excess oiliness of skin due to external application of oil or oil contained preparations.
* Medications like steroids, contraceptive pills which increase oil secretion of skin.
* Sometimes constipation.

The blocked pore or acne acts as good habitat for bacteria. The bacterial infection causes inflammation (red, painful swelling of the infected area) of the clogged pore or hair follicle leading to eruption of pimples.

The formation of black heads, white heads and scars

Black heads :

The clogged pores get a dark color due to dust and excess skin pigment to cause black heads.

White heads:

The hair follicle when blocked with sebum causes white head.

Scars or Marks:

When the infection spreads to sebaceous glands through infected acne a cyst develops below the skin surface. This cyst may rupture to spread the infection to neighbouring skin tissues. This causes scars or marks.
