Brief Acne Terminology
Acne or Acne Vulgaris?
The medical term for common acne or 'acne' (as it is commonly known) is acne vulgaris. This skin disorder can be found on the face, neck, chest, back and upper arms.
Acne vulgaris is defined by areas of the skin with comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules (pinheads), pustules (pimples), nodules (large papules), seborrhea (scaly red skin) and possibly leading to scarring of the affected area.
In order to be able to tackle acne head on it is vitally important to understand that it ranges from mild,moderate to severe.
This begins when oily secretions from the skin’s sebaceous glands block the tiny openings for hair follicles, hence blocked pores.
If large openings exist, the blockages take the form of blackheads. Small and flat spots with a darkened centre due to its air exposure. Blackheads are dark due to the presence of a dark pigment. This colour is not the result of dirt in the pores. Oil, dead skin cells and bacteria not trapped or blocked completely.
If there are small openings, the blockages take the form of whiteheads. Closed small, flesh coloured bumps. It develops from a deeper blockage in the pore. No drainage path and oil accumulates in the skin. Oil, dead skin cells and bacteria trapped and blocked.
Either type with plugged pores could develop further into swollen,tender inflammatory acne, pimples,nodules or deeper lumps.
This is visible, generally, on the skin surface.
They are small tender bumps usually pink or red with no head.
They are small round bumps red at the base with white or yellow pus at the top. Hence sometimes refer to as zits or pimples.
They are solid and large pimples, that can be deeply embedded in the skin and painful.
