A skin disease in which the oil glands become clogged and infected, often causing pimples to form, especially on the face. It is commonest during adolescence.
Acneof adolescents—Lipton, 1970.
This is often caused by the action of hormones on the oil glands. The glands become overactive and pimples develop, often accompanied by inflammation. If an oil gland is blocked by sebum (oily secretion), then it appears as a whitehead on the surface of the skin. If the external opening of the duct is evident, it will appear as a blackhead.
