Acne is perhaps the most common chronic skin disease. It is an inflammatory condition of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles usually found on the face, the neck, chest and shoulders. Nearly eight out of ten young people between the ages of 12 and 24 suffer from some degree of acne.

  • It is closely related to the disturbance in the hormones experienced at puberty. The majority of patients recover between the ages 20 and 30 years. But it is still common in men over 30 years.

  • The skin, covering the entire body, is a marvelous and intricate mechanism.
  • It serves three main purposes; namely, protection of the inner organism, regulation of body temperature and elimination of cell waste and systemic refuse.

  • The skin is directly connected with and intimately bound up with the working of the whole system.
  • All skin diseases, including acne, are the outcome of malfunctioning of the body as a whole.

Symptoms:

  • Acne is characterized by the presence of comedones or blackheads, pimples, small superficial sebaceous cysts and scars.
  • There are over half a dozen forms of acne. All of them are concerned with sebaceous glands or the glands connected with hair follicles.

  • The most common form of acne is blackheads. The areas chiefly affected are the forehead, temples, cheeks, and chin, the chest and back. In rare cases, almost the entire body may be covered with black heads with extensive scarring.
