The common type of acne is called acne vulgaris. It is a condition that mainly affects adolescents but may persist or even become more severe in adulthood. Most, but not all, acne patients have oily skin. Commonly known as "pimples". The acne can present as non inflamed lesions known as open comedones (blackheads), closed comedones (whitehead) or larger deeper cysts. 


It is important to manage the underlying factors including hormonal ones and get your acne properly managed and treated by a doctor to prevent long term scarring.
