Acne can leave scars (pitting) and cause skin pigmentation,
it is wise to consult a dermatologist about possible impacts or long term effects
on skin appearance as a result of acne.
Pimples may be caused by stress. Pores can become blocked by sebum (sebaceous
glands within the pore produce sebum). This sebum can darken and result in a blackhead
(acne vulgaris). This blockage often harbors bacteria resulting in an accumulation
of pus in the tissue (abscess). A collection of pus beneath the epidermis may
appear as a white or yellowish substance and may be referred to as a whitehead.
over the counter medicines or products are available for acne but effective results
vary. Typically, a combination of solutions provides more desirable results. Severe
acne may require prescription medication. All those seeking treatment for acne
(regardless of degree) should consult their physician.
