Acne

Overview

Acne is an inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands of the skin. It is not only a social concern due to both active acne and past scars, but it is also extremely painful.

There is a lot of advertising double-talk and half-truths that are prevalent in the world of acne managements. With a choice of literally hundreds of acne managements on the market, many of which seem to make little difference to resolving the acne and can make choosing the correct solution both daunting and frustrating.

Two Main Types of Acne

  1. Inflammatory Acne:

  2. This type of acne includes inflamed pores, cysts, lesions, and extremely sensitive bumps that are typically called "zits" or "pimples". This type of acne can be extremely painful and noticeable.

  3. Non-Inflamed Acne:

  4. This type of acne is usually separated into two categories: whiteheads and blackheads. These non-inflamed blemishes are called comedones. This kind of blemish will either surface and heal, or if the follicle wall ruptures, it will turn into an inflammatory blemish.
