Acne

Acne is an inflammatory condition associated with the hair follicle and attached sebaceous glands.  It can present with whiteheads, blackheads, inflammatory papules, nodules and cysts.  It can first manifest during puberty, but can also affect individuals throughout their 30s and 40s.  Acne can be controlled with medical management and can prevent the lifelong scarring that may occur as a result.
