Where does acne come from?

Acne is a disease of the so-called sebaceous follicles. A sebaceous follicle is found in human skin and includes a hair, a sebaceous gland, and a follicular canal.

forms of acne

  • Acne vulgaris (common acne)
    • acne comedonica
    • acne conglobate
    • Acne papulopustular
  • Acne tarda (late acne)
  • Acne infantum (infant acne)
  • Acne neonatorum (newborn acne)

Acne vulgaris
Acne vulgaris is also known as common acne and is probably the most well-known form. It usually occurs during  puberty and is due to increased androgen influence. Androgens are male sex hormones, but they are also the precursors to female sex hormones. A sudden surge in hormones, such as occurs during puberty, causes the sebaceous glands to enlarge and produce more sebum. Inside the hair follicle are the exits of the sebaceous glands, which become horny and block the escape of sebum. As a result, blackheads form (visible as small black dots), which become inflamed and become purulent pimples, pustules and papules can become.
