Acne or acne vulgaris is a common skin condition which occurs when hair follicles become clogged under the skin. It can affect people of all ages but occurs in teenagers mostly because of puberty. The different types of acne are;

  • Pustules (Pimples): These are large tender bumps, center filled with whitish or yellowish pus.
  • Nodules: Nodules are inflamed lumps which are located deep under the skin. These are the hard and painful form of acne.
