Acne can occur any time in life but often begins in puberty with the development of comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), pimples, and deeper lumps (cysts or nodules) that occur on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. There are often significant physical and psychological side effects associated with acne, such as permanent scarring, poor self-image, depression and anxiety. Certain factors can trigger or worsen acne, including genetic predisposition, diet, menstruation, hormones and stress.
