Acne vulgaris, commonly known as “acne” is an inflammatory disorder of the pilosebaceous unit (a unit of the hair and oil glands). It is usually seen in adolescence or around puberty, when the oil glands get activated by hormones. However, acne is also experienced by many adults.
Acne is is more common and more severe in males than in females due to androgens (male hormones). Genetic factors also play a role – if you have a family history of acne, you are more likely to experience it.
