Acne is a distressing disease for many teens and young adults.  The disorder usually effects the face, chest, back and arms. The cause of acne is complicated and involves hormones, oil glands, hair follicles, and the immune system.

The classic lesions of acne are comedoes (white heads and blackheads), papules, pustules, nodules and cysts.

Acne can be treated to improve appearance and decrease scarring but there is not a cure for the disease.
