Formation of Acne Vulgaris

Colloquially, acne vulgaris, simply acne, is called zits, pimples, or blemishes. It is formed when the growth of sebaceous glands lying beneath the skin’s surface is controlled by male hormones. These glands and the hair follicles, or the pores, within which they are found, are called sebaceous follicles. These follicles open onto the skin through hair follicles. At puberty, increased levels of male hormones cause the glands to produce excess sebum. Too much sebum blending with dead and sticky skin cells results in the formation of a hard plug called comedo that blocks the pores. After the plugged pores are invaded by Propionibacterium acnes, a bacterium that inhabits the skin, and other bacteria like Malassezia and staphylococcus epidermidis.

When the pores are clogged, these bacteria propagate. Enzymes Propionibacterium acnes produce can decompose sebum cutaneum making free fatty acid that stimulates the pores to have an inflammatory reaction. Propionibacterium acnes can also form low molecular peptide which has chemotaxis on neutral granulocyte. Owing to the hydrolase formed by the latter, the wall of a hair follicle leaks and even breaks, causing the contents of a hair follicle to enter dermal tissue and thus triggering inflammation and cystis.

On traditional Chinese medicine view, acne happens under the following conditions: steaming from the heat of lungs, hot blood filling in skin; eating excess spicy, fatty foods, causing damp and heat to block the formation of skin; or dysfunction of spleen changing damp pathogen into heat and this damp heat with phlegm residing in skin.
