What Is Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that happens when the follicles of your hair become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It is the cause of whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples. Acne is most frequent among teenagers, but it can afflict people of any age.
Acne, depending on its severity, can cause emotional discomfort as well as skin scarring. The earlier you begin treatment, the lesser your risk of severe complications. Acne can:
- Show up in small patches
- Encompass large areas
- Can impact the whole body
While increased pigmentation is ordinarily harmless, it can be a sign of a more serious medical problem.
Different types of hyperpigmentation include:
- Melasma: Believed to be caused by changes in hormones; may develop when pregnant
- Sunspots: Common, related to excessive sun exposure
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation: Result of skin inflammation or injury; common cause is acne
