Acne Frequently Asked Questions

What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition that typically occurs when hair follicles become clogged or blocked with dead skin cells and oil. Acne is more prevalent among adolescents, but it can appear at any age and on many different body parts. Some people only experience mild acne that goes away, while others can experience acne that leaves scarring and causes emotional distress.

What are the different types of acne?

There are different types of acne, such as:

  • Blackheads – open clogged pores
  • Whiteheads – closed clogged pores
  • Papules – red, small bumps that are usually sore
  • Pustules – papules with pus
  • Nodules – painful, solid lumps under your skin
  • Cystic lesions – painful lumps under your skin that are filled with pus
