Acne is a very common condition caused by the inflammation of grease-producing glands in the skin, leaving blocked pores (blackheads and whiteheads) and inflamed red papules and pustules, otherwise known as ‘spots’.
Typical appearance of acne can include:
- Oily skin
- Blackheads and whiteheads
- Red spots
- Yellow pus-filled pimples
- Large tender spots or cysts under the skins surface
There are a range of treatment options for acne which vary with severity and the age of the patient. These include topical therapies and oral medications such as antibiotics, hormone treatments, Spironolactone and Roaccutane.
