Acne represents chronic inflammation of the skin, which depends on genetic factors, nutrition, stress and hormonal disorder that begins in early puberty, and for women it may last until their forties.
Their occurrence is associated with the creation of androgens (male sex hormones). During puberty, the level of these hormones increases in males and in females too, and comes to the creation of large amounts of tallow, which is secreted by the sebaceous follicles. Therefore, it comes to the spread of pores, changing the sebaceous ducts and closing the pores. This forms an environment that is suitable for breeding of bacteria, usually Propionibacterium acne, and development of inflammation. This bacteria breaks down the waste fatty acids that irritate the sebaceous glands and leads to inflammation and acne. The problem with acne is the depth where their root is, and to get to him, usually the process is destructive and traumatic, and it effect’s painfully on surrounding tissue. Places where usually occur acne are forehead, cheeks, nose, chin and ears, and rarely but also they may occur on the neck, shoulders, upper back, and the area around the sternum.
