Acne is a common chronic skin disease that occurs due to blockage and/or inflammation of pilosebaceous units (hair follicles and sebaceous glands). Acne can present as non-inflammatory lesions, inflammatory lesions or both, affecting mostly the face but may also involve the chest and back. Initiation of treatment should be done the soonest time possible to prevent scarring and pigmentation.
