Acne information and locations in Mexico

Acne is a skin disorder that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Acne can appear on the face, back, chest and shoulders.
Acne usually forms from a hormonal imbalance (puberty, menopause, menstruation, etc.) that increases the production of sebum or oily skin, which comes from the sebaceous glands. This causes dead skin cells to accumulate on the skin, clog follicles, and collect bacteria, resulting in whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples.
Depending on the production of oil, bacteria, and inflammation, the dermatologist may treat and control the acne with retinoids, antibiotics, or other prescription medications.
