Acne is a common inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous glands characterized by comedones, papules, pustules, inflamed nodules, and superficial pus-filled cysts. In severe cases, canalizing and deep, inflamed or even purulent sores may be seen.


Modern medicine believes that acne is a complex pathological change of hormones, keratinization, sebum, and bacteria. It usually begins at puberty when an increase in androgens causes an increase in the size and activity of the pilosebaceous glands. Intrafollicular hyperkeratosis leads to blockage of the pilosebaceous follicles which then leads to the formation of comedones. These comedones are composed of sebum, keratin, and microorganisms. These microorganisms break down triglycerides in the sebum to free fatty acids which then irritate the follicular wall. Superficial acne refers to blackheads (open comedones) and whitehead (closed comedones), inflamed papules, pustules, and superficial cysts. Deep acne refers to a form characterized by deep, inflamed nodules and pus-filled cysts which often rupture and become abscesses. Scarring is common with deep acne.


Acne usually appears on the face, chest, and upper back. In severe conditions, it also attacks to lower part of the body. Males are more prone to getting this problem.


Traditional Chinese medicine believes that acne is caused by accumulation of "heat-toxins" in the stomach, intestines, or liver and gallbladder. The heat-toxin usually comes from a poor diet, such as spicy foods (chilli, pepper, cinnamon...), fried foods, rich foods, nuts (especially peanuts), and chocolate. Stress may also be a factor that induces and aggravates the problem.
