Acne Treatment

Just about every individual experiences acne (acne vulgaris) at some point in their lives. Acne is caused by the blockage of your hair follicles and increased production of normal skin oils. Some medications, such as lithium, iodides, cortisone or hormones can also stimulate breakouts.

Currently, there is no actual cure for acne and controlling the symptoms is the best way to avoid long-term scarring. A person is most likely to experience acne on their face, neck, chest or back. This is because these areas of the body have the most sebaceous glands.
