Acne is a general term used to describe eruptive disease of the skin. This is a condition that affects oil secretion glands causing them to become clogged and inflamed or infected. Acne lesions may occur in many different forms, the most common being known as black heads, white heads, and papules (the red-coloured inflamed areas of infection).
Acne mostly affects the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Although most associated with teenagers, adult acne is quite common.
