The condition occurs when a follicle (the tube through which sebum and dead cells transports to the skin surface), cover and pimple appears.

These pimples commonly present on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Acne can occur after hormonal changes that occur in puberty, menstrual periods, pregnancy, using birth control pills, as well as some cosmetics and certain drugs.

To treat the acne, is necessary to adopt permanent measures such as cleaning the skin with a non-drying soap twice a day and exercising.

It is important not to squeeze or scratch pimples because there can be generated scars and skin infections; also, people with this condition should not touch their face with dirty hands and should use not greasy cosmetics.

In many cases, acne disappears after adolescence, although in some cases it may last into middle age.

Therefore, it is important not to ignore the condition and consult a dermatologist for timely treatment.
