Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
Normal skin requires a certain level of sebum (oil) for protection and hydration. However, when excess sebum is produced, the pores become clogged, leading to bacterial infections that can cause the swollen, red, and/or pus-filled bumps associated with acne. Although often linked with hormonal changes occurring during puberty, acne can affect adults as well and can range from mild, isolated outbreaks, to a more severe, chronic condition.
Acne is often found on the face, back, neck, chest, and/or shoulders, and may present in a number of different forms, such as whiteheads, blackheads, clogged pores, pimples, or cystic lesions (painful red bumps under the skin).
