Acne vulgaris, or what's more commonly known simply as acne, is a chronic skin disease that's characterized by bacterial growth in the pores. Our skin has many small and shallow holes on the surface of it. Known as pores, it's not uncommon for bacteria to grow in them. As the bacteria continues to reproduce, it can trigger an inflammatory response by the person's immune system, resulting in the formation of whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and other types of acne.
To put the problem of acne into perspective, statistics show over 633 million people throughout the world suffer from it. Based on these numbers, acne is the eight-most common disease in the world. Acne, as you may know, is most common in teenagers and young adults. Some reports, in fact, suggest that up to nine in 10 teenagers suffer from acne.

Don't let that you fool you into thinking acne is an age-related disease. While it's most common among teenagers and young adults, it can affect anyone at any age.
There are ways to treat acne, such as the use of topical creams and ointments. Many topical acne treatment solutions consist of salicylic acid as the main ingredient. With its highly acidic properties, salicylic acid is able to neutralize the bacteria that's responsible for acne. Topical solutions are applied locally to the face or area of the skin where acne is problematic.
In addition to topical solutions, there are also oral solutions on the market to treat acne. Antibiotics, for example, are highly effective at treating cases of severe acne. When consumed orally, they kill bacteria in the body, including the bacteria that's responsible for acne. Antibiotics typically aren't prescribed for minor acne. Because of the potential for negative side effects, they are most commonly used in cases of severe acne. If a topical solution won't clear up a person's severe acne, he or she may be prescribed antibiotics.
