Presence of blackheads, pimples, sebaceous cysts and scars defines acne in totality. Acne shows their presence due to elevated levels of male hormones, which in turn stimulate the sebaceous glands that are attached to the hair follicles to secrete excess oil, to such an extent that it clogs the follicular openings.
This clogged hair follicle enlarges in size producing a lump, which ultimately ruptures, thus allowing the bacteria to access deeper dermis layer of the skin.
