Acne means thick red, often purulent pustules on the skin, especially on the face, on the chest and back.
Acne appears when a pore in our skin clogs. With hormonal changes, like during puberty or menopause, the sebaceous glands of the skin produce more sebum than usual. So they clog more easily, become infected and become pimples.
A visit to a doctor is recommended for pronounced acne and especially if you personally suffer greatly.
