Acne is a disease of the skin that primarily affect adolescents and occasionally newborns. These blemishes appear in regions of the body where excess sebum (from sebaceous glands) occurs. When are pilosebaceous units are "plugged" by a microcomedome, the lesions of acne begin. Acne may be characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, nodules and eventual scarring. Acne rarely may be due to underlying diseases manifesting, in part, by the appearance of "acne-like" skin problems.
Treatment plans for acne vary depending upon the severity of the acne and the psychological profiles of the affected patients. For mild to moderate cases, careful cleansing of the affected areas and use of topical retinoids with or without benzoyl peroxide/antibiotic combinations. More sophisticated multimodel therapy or use of Accutane may be warranted in severe cases of acne, especially cases prone to significant scarring.
