Acne is a common, chronic skin condition caused by inflammation of oil producing sebaceous glands. Acne breakouts are most common on the face, but they can also occur on the back, shoulders, neck, chest, scalp, upper arms and legs.
Young men and women get acne in equal numbers. Approximately 90% of all adolescents and 25% of all adults experience acne at some point in their lives. Acne can leave life-long emotional and physical scars, a reminder of the embarrassment and self-consciousness that came with the breakouts. Acne is not due to uncleanliness or poor personal hygiene. Many misconceptions are associated with this skin condition. If you are an acne sufferer, you need to know the facts.
