Report Description

Acne vulgaris is a type of disorder that is characterized with the occurrence of seborrhea (scaly red skin), papules, pimples, comedones and nodules on the skin. Acne vulgaris primarily affects back, face and chest. Acne majorly affects teenagers however, its occurrence in adult population is also prominent. Onset of the disorder usually occurs at puberty due to increased secretion of sebum triggered by the action of high androgen levels. Also, during pregnancy, androgen level in the body increases hence increases the risk of acne vulgaris. It has been proven that acne vulgaris can be transmitted to next hereditary level, hence is also considered as hereditary disorder.

Acne vulgaris is caused by Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Propionibacterium acnes is considered to be the most widely present acne-causing bacterium. Acne vulgaris on the body can be detected by their physical presence and morphology. However, depending upon the severity of the disorder, various diagnostic tests are performed for confirmation of the disorder that include Leeds acne grading technique, Pillsbury scale and Cook's acne grading scale.
