Acne progresses as inflammatory red spots (papule), blackheads (comedones) or whiteheads, and if it gets deeper, produces boil-like lesions called nodules or cysts. Bacteria are the common culprit to all forms of pimples. Skin produces excess sebum (for lubrication) during hormonal changes or bacterial infection, which may be felt as oily material in the face. This excess sebum attracts dust and forms plug which closes the pores of the skin. After this lesion heals, scars will form as permanent marks of the pimples occurrence in the skin.
