It can be distressing to have acne that is constantly flaring up, but the scarring that acne flare-ups can leave behind can have a negative impact on a person's self-confidence.
Acne scars are most common on the face, but can also occur on the neck, chest, back, shoulders, and scalp.
Causes of Acne
Acne is quite a common skin condition among people. Acne is caused by the overproduction of oils in the sebaceous glands, which blocks the follicles of the skin.
This oil is known as sebum, and when an overabundance of sebum mixes with dead skin cells, it forms a plug. These plugged follicles will create the whiteheads and bumps we know as acne.
Types of Acne
The most common areas that are affected by acne are the face, chest and back. Acne blemishes can develop in five forms.
It appear as small black or yellowish bumps on the skin. Blackheads aren't actually filled with dirt. It's down to the pigments of the hair follicle that gives it this colour.

Form as small red bumps and can feel sore and tender to the touch.
Similar to papules, but these have a white tip at the centre that is a result of the build-up of pus.
These are the most severe type of acne blemish. These larger lumps look like boils and are filled with pus. These also carry a greater risk for permanent scarring.

Any of the 5 types of acne blemishes have the potential to cause scarring, but scarring becomes more prevalent with cysts and nodules. These cause damage when they burst. Also, picking at acne blemishes and scars can make them worse.
Acne scars form when the deep layer of skin is damaged, causing them to become visible reminders of injury and tissue repair. Acne scars are considered an injury that is caused by the body's inflammatory response to sebum, bacteria and dead cells.
