Acne is a skin disease that involves the oil glands at the base of the hair follicles. Acne usually occurs on the face but can also occur on the chest and back. It is common during puberty but can also persist into adulthood. Acne is not dangerous but early treatment is important to prevent scarring. Some cases can be treated with face wash or over the counter medications but more severe cases may require oral or topical antibiotics that our Doctors may recommend.
