Those people who have acne their dead skin cell get mix with sebum(oil) which is produced by the skin and plug up hair follicles in the skin. The Bacteria grows in hair follicles causes irritation in the skin. Acne starts at teen age when the oil glands makes more sebum.


Causes of Acne

When the hair follicle becomes plugged with oil and skin cells, a “whitehead” occurs. If the follicle is plugged near the surface of the skin and air touches the plug, it turns black and is called a "blackhead." A blackhead isn't caused by dirt.

When the wall of plugged hair follicle breaks then swelling begins which turns in to red bump. When the follicle wall breaks near the skin surface then the bump becomes pimple. If the wall breaks deep in the skin, acne nodules or cysts can form. This is called "cystic acne."

Treatment Options

Many treatments are available for acne, including over-the-counter and prescription medicines.Here you can get the full list of medications used to treat Acne ... /acne.html. Anyway consult your doctor before using such medications.
