Acnes
Acne is a disease that results from the blocking of follicles under your skin. It is not dangerous, but it can leave unpleasant scars. Your skin has pores which connect through follicles to oil glands located under the skin. The oil glands produce Sebum, an oily liquid. When too much sebum is produced, the follicles can get blocked, resulting in acnes. Acnes are mainly divided into 4 categories:
Whiteheads/Blackheads
Blackheads are blocked pores filled with sebum and sloughed-off cells and have undergone a chemical reaction resulting in the oxidation of melanin. This gives the material in the follicle the typical black color.

Whiteheads are blocked follicles that are filled with the same material, but have only a microscopic opening to the skin surface. Since the air cannot reach the follicle, the material is not oxidized, and remains white.
Papules
If the blocked follicles have slight inflammation, papules will appear.
Pustules
It’s clearly visible on the surface of the skin. They are red at their base and have pus at the top.
Cysts
It’s clearly visible on the surface of the skin. They are painful, and are filled with pus. Cysts can easily cause scars.
