Additional Information

Acne begins as blemishes beneath the surface of the skin, when oil glands (sebaceous glands) become clogged by skin cells and bacteria that block the opening of the pores. If the blocked pore is closed, it forms a whitehead; if the pore is open it forms a blackhead. Red, inflamed pimples appear when the bacteria breaks through the wall of the whitehead or blackhead.

Acne occurs most often on the face, but also can develop on the chest, shoulders and neck. approximately 17 million people in the U.S. have acne. While the condition is most prevalent among teenagers, it affects people of all ages, from infants to the elderly.
