Akne

Were you looking for information about Acne? Akne is a common misspelling of acne.
 
When the follicle of an oil gland becomes clogged with oil, skin cells, and bacteria, it's called a pimple. Several pimples occurring in the same area are known as acne. Nearly 17 million people in the United States have acne, making it the most common skin disease. Some specific types of acne include whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, and cysts. Among the things that can contribute to acne are greasy makeup, some types of medicine, hormone changes during pregnancy, and the increase in hormones during the teenage years. Fortunately, almost every case of acne can be resolved with proper treatment. In some cases, acne can even be prevented.
