Acne, or pimples, is a common skin condition characterized by the formation of various lesions on the skin, such as whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. It is caused by factors like excess oil production, clogged hair follicles, bacteria, hormones, and inflammation. Acne typically appears on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. It can affect people of all ages, but is most common during adolescence. Treatment options include over-the-counter topical treatments, prescription medications, and dermatological procedures. Good skincare practices like gentle cleansing, avoiding harsh products, and not picking at pimples are important. Consulting with a dermatologist is recommended for personalized diagnosis and treatment. Proper care and management can effectively control acne, improving skin health and overall well-being.
