Acne vulgaris

What is Acne vulgaris

Acne vulgaris (or simply acne) is a long-term skin disorder  that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil from skin. Acne is characterized by areas of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and greasy skin and may result in scarring . The resulting appearance can lead to anxiety, reduced self-esteem and, in extreme cases, depressive thoughts of suicide.

Causes of Acne vulgaris

Inside the skin pores are sebaceous glands which produce sebum. When the outer layers of skin shed (as they do continuously), the dead skin cells left behind may become ‘glued’ together by the sebum. This causes a blockage in the pore, especially when the skin becomes thicker at puberty. The sebaceous glands produce more sebum which builds up behind the blockage, and this sebum harbors various bacteria including the species of Propionibacterium acnea causing infection and inflammation.


Acne is commonly classified by severity as mild, moderate, or severe. This type of categorization can be an important factor in determining the appropriate treatment regimen. Mild acne is classically defined as open (blackheads) and closed (whiteheads), comedone limited to the face with occasional inflammatory lesions. Acne may be considered to be of moderate severity when a higher number of inflammatory papules and pustules occur on the face compared to mild cases of acne and acne lesions also occur on the trunk of the body. Lastly, severe acne is said to occur when nodules (the painful ‘bumps’ lying under the skin) are the characteristic facial lesions, and involvement of the trunk is extensive.


Signs and symptoms

Typical features of acne include seborrhoea (increased oil secretion), microcomedones, comedones, papules, pustules, nodules (large papules), and in many cases scarring. The appearance of acne varies with skin color. It may result in psychological and social problems. Yamuna Pharmacy is manufacturer of herbal medicines (since 1944).
