What is Acne

Acne is a common skin disease that affects people of all races and ages. However, is most common in teenagers and young adults. An estimated 80 percent of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 have acne outbreaks. Some people in their forties and fifties still get acne. 


Symptoms range from uninflamed blackheads to pus-filled pimples, cysts or large read, and tender bumps. Early treatment is the best way to prevent acne scars.
