Acne is a dermatological condition facilitated by different causes. The most common cause is related to hormonal changes in the body causing an over production of oil and sebum produced by the sebacious glands of the skin and scalp. This blocks the skin pores and oxidizes causing black heads, pustules, carbuncles and cysts to develop.

A bacteria known as propioni-bacteria is the most common cause. If left untreated, acne can become a more acute and serious types of acne requiring courses of oral antibiotics, acutane and other pharmaceutical prophalaxis.
