Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles under the skin become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. This is most common among teenagers, though it can affect people of all ages. Most often, acne outbreaks occur on the face but can also appear on the back, chest, and shoulders.

While acne doesn’t pose a serious risk to your health, it can still be painful and over time, may also cause scarring. You are most at risk of developing acne during puberty. During this time, your body undergoes many hormonal changes. These changes can trigger oil production, leading to an increased risk of acne.

Symptoms may include:
  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Small red bumps
  • Pimples
  • Painful, pus-filled lumps under the skin

For those suffering from milder symptoms, the use of topical creams, lotions, and gels should be more than enough to ease and effectively control acne flare-ups. While for those with more pronounced symptoms, may be advised to try prescriptive treatments – all of which can be found at Elite Meds.
