What is acne and how to treat it?

A blemish forms when a pore becomes clogged with dead skin cells, oil, and follows by bacteria infection and inflammation.

Forms of acne

A whitehead occurs when a plugged hair follicle make a bump, but stay beneath the skin.


Blackheads describe plugged hair follicles that have reached the skin’s surface. The dark color of blackheads is due to exposure to air, it’s not dirt.


These are small pink bumps on the skin that are often inflames and tender to the touch.


The most obvious of pimple types, pimples are papules that have lesions on top filled with pus due to your body fighting the acne bacteria.

Blemishes can be whitehead, blackhead, papules and pustule.
