    What is Acne?

    Acne is a skin condition caused by the inflammation of the hair follicles and sebaceous (oil-producing) glands of skin. Hair follicles are the miniature structures that grow hair in the entire scalp. Sebaceous glands produce sebum. On places where acne grows, the hair roots are surrounded by sebaceous glands. The mix of the sebaceous glands along with the hair follicles is the "pilosebaceous unit," where acne pimples and cysts grow. Sebum moisturizes skin and hair.
