Active Acne Treatment

Active acne refers to the inflammatory skin condition commonly affecting the face, neck, and back. It manifests as blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. Acne occurs when hair follicles under the skin become clogged with a combination of sebum (oil that helps keep the skin from drying out) and dead skin cells. This blockage leads to the formation of lesions, commonly known as pimples. Factors like hormonal changes, genetics, excess oil production, bacteria growth, and inflammation contribute to the formation of acne. Acne can affect people of all ages and races but is most common in teenagers and young adults.

The different types of active acne include comedonal acne, inflammatory acne (which consists of pustules and papules), and nodulocystic acne. Comedonal acne develops from clogged pores and can be open (blackheads) or closed (whiteheads).

Inflammatory acne ranges from mild to severe and includes pustules (red, pus-filled bumps with a white head) and papules (red bumps without a white head). Nodulocystic acne is a severe form that develops deep in the skin, leading to the formation of cystic acne (large, pus-filled lesions) and nodular acne (deeper, inflamed nodules).
