Acne

Pimples, blackheads and whiteheads caused by facial acne can affect your appearance and lead to more serious infections. When OTC medications fail, a prescription medication may be an effective solution.

What causes acne?

  • Glands within the skin become clogged from debris, secretions or abnormal glandular growth
  • Infected glands become inflamed, red and swollen, causing blemishes to appear

Features of acne:

  • May appear as blackheads, white heads, red bumps or all three
  • Develops slowly
  • May occur on dry or oily skin
  • Some medications can trigger acne
  • May not respond to over-the counter remedies
