Acne vulgaris is an inflammatory skin condition, which particularly affects the face, back, and chest. It is commonest in young adolescents, but may persist into late adult life. It may appear for the first time in the 20s. The skin is usually excessively greasy and may have comedones (blackheads), small pimples, large pustules (pus spots) or painful swollen cysts.
