Acne is a common concern for many adolescents and adults. Hormones and other factors can increase oil production in the skin, causing pores to become blocked. Clogged pores can produce blackheads and whiteheads, and the overgrowth of bacteria can cause redness and pimples. If the inflammation penetrates deep into the skin, an acne cyst develops. Acne outbreaks range from mild, characterized by an occasional pimple or two, to severe, with areas that are continuously red and swollen with deep cysts. While most common on the face, acne can also affect the neck, chest, back, and shoulders.
