What Is Acne?
What is acne? Certainly - most of us know what it is - simply because we have had to experience it at one time or another in our lives. But - in case a definition is needed - here is a short one. Acne is a dermatological term that includes clogged pores - pimples and lumps or cysts that occur on the face - neck - chest - back - shoulders - and upper arms. Acne occurs most commonly in teenagers - but is not limited to any age group - afflicting even adults in their forties. This disease has many varieties - and although none are life threatening - the more severe cases of acne can be disfiguring - leaving permanent scars on effected areas.
The physical changes in body tissue - or lesions - which acne causes are described in five ways: comedos - papule - pustule - nodule and cyst. Further - these terms denote range or severity with comedo (also known as blackheads and whiteheads) at one end and nodules or cysts at the other.
As stated above - acne is most common among teenagers - affecting teens between the ages 12 and 17. Usually - these mild cases are cleared up with over-the-counter treatments and the acne goes away by the early twenties. It also should be noted that although acne affects both girls and boys equally - there are some distinctions. Young men are more likely to have severe - long-term acne while women can have reoccurring or intermittent acne well into adulthood due to hormonal changes and cosmetics.
Now that we have summarized just what acne is - we can move on to the subject of this book. A guide to acne: what types are there - how to treat it - and current myths circulating about it.
