Acne is most commonly occur during puberty. Due to hormonal changes, there is a greater secretion of sebum, whereby the fatty acids that cause inflammation become free. Excessive work of the sebaceous glands is caused by insufficient movement and improper diet. The accumulation of sebum penetrates outwards and blackheads are formed which, when inflamed, form red acne.
If inflamed, acne can form purulent ulcers (abscesses) that leave scars on the face. It is therefore advisable to consult a doctor to prevent inflammation. Acne mainly affects the face, chest and back. Acne can also be caused by antidepressants, antiseptics, birth control pills, certain corticosteroids and hormonal medications.
Very rarely, very severe acne causes fever and pain in the joints and muscles.
