WHAT IS ACNE?
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition involving the sebaceous glands of the skin. It causes dark spots, scars and pimples especially on the face, shoulders, back, chest and upper arms.
It is usually characterized by PAPULES (Small inflamed elevations of the skin that do not necessarily discharge pus) or PUSTULES (Small elevations of skin containing pus).
