First of all, let us look at What is Acne?
Acne or Pimples is an inflammatory condition of the skin that occurs when the pores get clogged. Acne lesions usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. It is characterized by the presence
of blackheads, whiteheads and pimples or zits. Some other troublesome acne lesions that can develop, include the following:
Papules--inflamed lesions that usually appear as small, pink bumps on the skin and can be tender to the touch
Pustules (pimples)--papules topped by pus-filled lesions that may be red at the base
Nodules--large, painful, solid lesions that are lodged deep within the skin.
Cysts--deep, painful, pus-filled lesions that can cause scarring.
