Acne vulgaris (AV) is a chronic inflammatory dermatosis notable for open or closed comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and inflammatory lesions, including papules, pustules, or nodules (also known as cysts). Lesions are most common on the face. Acne is a common skin disease, especially in adolescents and young adults. Approximately 50 million people in the United States have AV, and it affects almost 90% of teenagers, but can occur in adulthood.
