Acne is a very common inflammatory skin condition characterised by spots, blackheads and whiteheads. It often starts in early teens, for most people it tends to resolve by the late teens or early twenties, but it can last for longer and may develop for the first time in people in their late twenties or even the thirties.

Acne causes and triggers
It is important to take action to control acne as soon as it appears to avoid permanent scarring. Try not to pick or squeeze your spots as this usually aggravates them and may cause scarring.
