Acne

Causes of Acne
Acne is caused from hormonal changes occurring during adolescence. These changes result in oil glands in the skin becoming plugged. The reasons for this are unknown. The bacteria, normally present in the oil glands, proliferate and form infections due to the oil build up, which can cause acne. Acne is not caused by dirt, masturbation or certain foods. Hygiene can help with the oily skin.

Signs and Symptoms of Acne
Acne skin eruptions consist of blackheads (black spots about the size of a pinhead), whiteheads (white spots) and pustules (lesions filled with pus) accompanied with redness and inflammation. Severe acne results in cysts (large, firm swellings), and abscesses (swollen and tender infections with pus).
