Symptoms of acne

  • Pimples (pustules).
  • Seborrhoea (areas of scaly red skin).
  • Blackheads, whiteheads (comedones), pinheads (papules), nodules.
  • Scarring (in more severe cases).

Acne (acne vulgaris, cystic acne) is a common inflammatory skin condition characterised by outbreaks of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and cysts. It affects the areas of skin with the densest population of oil glands (sebaceous follicles) – the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back. It is common in teenagers and normally tends to clear up after puberty, though the pimples can leave scars.

Acne tends to run in families, and for most people it tends to disappear or decrease substantially between the ages of 20-25. A few people have acne in their 30’s, 40’s and even older.
