Acne

The most common form of acne is known as "acne vulgaris", meaning "common acne." Excessive secretion of oils from the glands combines with naturally occurring dead skin cells to block the hair follicles. Oil secretions build up beneath the blocked pore, providing a perfect environment for the skin bacteria Propionibacterium acnes to multiply uncontrolled. In response, the skin inflames, producing the visible lesion. The face, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms are especially affected.

In Chinese Medicine, acne is caused by liver tention and poor diet. The indigestion causes body to accumulate toxin and damp heat.

Treatment includes acupuncture and herbal supplements.
