What is acne?
Acne is a common skin condition marked by persistent pimples, inflamed papules or sometimes nodules and cysts. Blackheads and whiteheads are also considered symptoms. Acne often appears on the face, but it can also be found on the neck, chest, shoulders and back. It is common in teenagers, but it affects people of all ages, including children.
One of the worst things about acne is the potential scarring it may cause, making facial skin look less than optimal. Because of this, acne often causes embarrassment and emotional distress.
