Plugged pores (blackheads
and whiteheads), pimples, and even deeper lumps (cysts
or nodules) that occur on the face, neck, chest,
back, shoulders and the upper arms.
Acne affects most
teenagers to some extent. However, the disease is not
restricted to any age group; adults in their 20s -
even into their 40s - can get acne. While not a life
threatening condition, acne can be upsetting and disfiguring.
When severe, acne can lead to serious and permanent
scarring. Even less severe cases can lead to scarring.
To avoid acne scarring, treating acne early is important.
