What is acne?

Acne vulgaris is a chronic dermal (skin) problem. It occurs when the skin pores get clogged with oil and the dead cells on the skin. Usually, it appears in the form of pimples, whiteheads, or blackheads and in areas with the most sebaceous glands like the shoulders, chest, upper back, and face. Acne occurs the most in almost 95% of teenagers.

While treatment for acne is available in Pakistan is possible, it might still persist. The healing process is slow and usually, when one fades away, newer pimples and bumps appear. 

What are the types of acne disease?

The different types of acne vulgaris result in the appearance of different types of lesions. They are;

  • Whiteheads appear as the hair follicles and oil glands clog due to the presence of excess oil and dead skin cells.

  • Blackheads are open skin bumps due to the presence of dead skin cells that look like dust filled in the bump.

  • Pimples that are indicative of acne. They are bumps filled with pus and are the most prominent symptom of acne vulgaris.

  • Pus-filled lesions which are extremely painful.

  • Skin nodules which are cystic bumps on the skin. They may be black or brown in color.

How does a dermatologist diagnose acne?

Acne can easily be diagnosed by the physical examination of the face, chest, or back skin. Acne can be mild, moderate, or severe depending on the number of skin nodules and scarring.

A medical and family history followed by laboratory tests may be required to diagnose the underlying causes of acne like hormonal imbalance, PCOS, etc.

  • Topical acne medicinal creams and gels like antibiotics, retinoids, and salicylic acids
