Acne is an inflammatory disease of the sebaceous follicles, which occurs especially in correspondence to puberty. The typical blackheads, pustules and papules can affect not only the face, but also the back and chest. Without correct medical treatment, permanent scarring can occur. Frequent and consistent medical therapy can cure acne and prevent scarring of skin tissue.
Symptoms of acne rosacea include redness around the cheeks, chin, nose and forehead, which may be accompanied by the formation of pustules and enlarging of the capillaries. The symptoms of acne rosacea worsen if left untreated and can lead to tissue growth on the face. With modern treatment methods (medication, laser), the disease can be treated successfully.
