Welcome to Imran'z Clinic:

Acne is a skin condition that involves the oil glands at the base of hair follicles. Acne commonly occurs during puberty. Acne is not dangerous, but can leave skin scars. Types of pimples include whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nobles, and cysts. Medically acne is a disorder of skin resulting due to blocking of pores of skin called pilosebaceous units (pilo - means related to hair and sebaceous means related to sebum or oil). These pores contain hair follicles and oil secreting glands which lubricate the hair and skin.Acne can range from a thinly scattered area of pimples and blackheads to an area covered with large cysts. Pimples it is just a type of Acne Vulgaris. Pimples are the red bumps on your face with a white core. That is what pimple is, you could call it acne though... because it is a type of acne. We could call it as forms of acne rather than types. The bottom line is, they are all caused by clogged pores and follicles due to something blocking then (eg. dirt, dead cells, chemicals, etc.). Treatments of these conditions are basically the same, so need not worry. Acne or pimples typically appear on face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and the areas of skin with the largest number of functional oil glands. People with acne or pimples frequently have a variety of lesions. The basic acne lesion, called the comedo, is simply an enlarged and plugged hair follicle. When onset of acne occurs, it means the body is not performing two jobs necessary for the maintenance of healthy skin.
