(acne vulgaris) is a disease of the hair follicle that results
in inflammatory and non inflammatory skin lesions. It affects
nearly 17 million people in the U.S., making it the most common
skin disease in the country. It affects all ages, every ethnicity
and both sexes. Acne occurs most commonly where the sebaceous
glands (oil glands) are the most numerous; the face, neck,
chest, shoulders and upper back.
usually begins when the body starts to produce the hormones
called androgens. As androgen production increases sebaceous
glands (oil glands) enlarge and produce more oil. Also, the
inner lining of skin (epidermis) in the hair follicle produces
more skin cells. Normally, dead cells inside the follicle shed
gradually and get expelled onto the surface. However, in acne
patients these cells are shed more rapidly and tend to stick
together. When they mix with sebum (oil), the cells and sebum
can form a plug in the follicle that causes the follicle to
clog. This results in non inflammatory lesions such as blackheads.
Contrary to popular belief, the black color is not caused by
dirt but rather is due to a process of oxidation. In short,
it is believed that the clogged follicle becomes a breeding
ground for bacteria. One type of bacteria specifically involved
is Propionibacterium acnes, P. acnes, for short. P. acnes ingests
sebum and is a normal resident on skin even in people who don't
have acne. However, when the sebaceous gland gets clogged and
sebum builds up inside the follicle, P. acnes multiplies rapidly.
By-products produced by the bacteria can cause inflammation
in the follicle and surrounding skin. This results in overall
redness and inflammatory skin lesions such as pustules, pimples,
