Acne is a disease of “the pilosebaceous“ unit and is found all over the body. The Pilosebaceous unit is a sebaceous gland connected to a canal which is called a “follicle“. That follicle contains a fine hair. These are found mostly in the face, chest and upper back. The sebaceous glands make a substance which is oily in nature – it is called sebum. The sebum drains into the skin through an opening in the follicle called a pore. Keratinocytes also line the follicle these 3 items hair, sebum and keratinocytes can produce a plug. This plug can stop the sebum from reaching the skin and so sebum and other cells allow bacteria Propionibacterium acnes to grow inside the plugged follicles. The result is pimples.
