Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in India, affecting nearly 200 to 300 million people. This chronic, inflammatory disorder results in pimples and spots, especially on the neck, face, back, upper arms, chest, and shoulders. Some of the most prevalent kinds of acne include whiteheads, cysts, pimples, and blackheads. Acne mainly coincides with puberty when the sebaceous glands become activated. However, it may affect people in any age group. While not life-threatening, this condition can cause scarring on the skin. To prevent that, it is important to visit a dermatologist for timely treatment. Oil-producing glands in men and women are located at the base of the hair follicles. These glands become stimulated by the male hormones secreted by the adrenal glands and cause breakouts. Treatment is recommended on the basis of the persistence and severity of this condition. Some common risk factors of acne include anxiety, stress, genetics, the menstrual cycle, squeezing pimples, hot and humid climates, and the use of oil-based makeup products.Read more
