corrado25 986 days ago on News - Acne is a common human skin disease characterized by areas of skin with red scales, blackheads, whiteheads, pinheads, pimples and papules. Acne occurs most commonly during adolescence, and sometimes might continue into adulthood. There are various types of acne, out of which the most common is acne vulgaris, which is found mostly among teenagers. The other types of acne are acne rosacea, cystic acne, nodular acne, acne inversa etc. There are several different types of acne, which are categorized according to the severity of the condition: Blackheads are follicles that have a wider than normal opening. They are filled with plugs of sebum and sloughed-off cells and have undergone a chemical reaction resulting in the oxidation of melanin. This gives the material in the follicle the typical black color.
Whiteheads are follicles that are filled with the same material, but have only a microscopic opening to the skin surface. Since the air cannot reach the follicle, the material is not oxidized, and remains white.

Acne vulgaris is one of the most common types of acne, affecting teenagers and adults. This distressing and common skin condition develops due to overactive sebaceous glands during puberty.
