What is Acne?
Acne vulgaris is a very common skin condition that usually starts in teenagers. It is characterised by blackheads, whiteheads, pus-filled spots and oily skin. The acne bacterium (propionobacterium acnes) can multiply in those prone to acne. This triggers inflammation and the formation of red pus-filled spots. For the majority it tends to resolve in the late teens or twenties but for some patients acne can persist for many years.
