You may prefer to call acne "pimples", "spots" or "zits". One of the most common condition
Nearly all of us have acne at some time or another. It mainly affects adolescents (and can start as young as 8 years old), but acne may persist, begin or become more severe in adulthood.
Acne most often affects the face, but it may spread to involve the neck, chest and back, and sometimes even more extensively over the body.
Several types of acne spots occur, often at the same time. They may be inflamed papules, pustules and nodules; or non-inflamed comedones and pseudocysts.
Acne may be classified as mild, moderate or severe. Comedones and inflammatory lesions are usually considered separately.
Treatment for acne depends on the patient's age and sex, the extent and the severity of the acne, how long it has been present, and response to previous treatments.
