Pimples and Zits (Acne Vulgaris)

What is Acne Vulgaris?

Acne vulgaris, better known as pimples or zits, is an inflammatory skin disease. It occurs due to changes in the skin structures consisting of a hair follicle and its associated sebaceous gland pilosebaceous units.

Acne usually occurs at earlier stages in life; although adults may get it too. It is probably the most widely dreaded condition for teenagers everywhere. While, in most people, pimples disappear by the time they are done with college, severe cases of acne may result in permanent damage to the skin. Below, we will try to explain what acne is, what causes it and various methods of treatment.

Random Useful Tip:
Epinephrine shot
If you are known to have a severe anaphylactic reaction, carry an epinephrine (adrenaline) shot with you at all times. Pay attention to expiration date and replace it regularly: upon expiration, it loses its effectiveness.

Random Drug Info:
Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
