The pimples usually occur on the back, neck, face, chest, and shoulders. People with acne usually have different types of blemishes, such as white bumps, white-heads, which appear on the skin as small, and blackheads, which look like black spots. Painful, inflamed, pus-filled bumps are known as cysts; can produce scarring.

People of any age can develop acne, but it most commonly occurs in young adults between ages 12 to 24. Acne usually clears by the age 30, but some people still have this condition in their late ages. Acne is more common among caucasians.

There is a wide range of treatment options that are available; including gel, lotions, creams. In worse cases the doctor may prescribe antibiotics to treat acne. If you have acne, do not try to stop an outbreak or reduce oil production by scrubbing your skin or using strong soaps. It will make your problem only worse. Instead, gently wash your skin with a mild soap whenever it feels greasy or oily.
