Acne occurs when debris, oil and dead skin cells become trapped within a hair follicle. Pimples, whiteheads and blackheads are examples of non-inflamed acne. Bacteria can invade the clogged follicle and cause redness, swelling and inflammation. This is known as an inflamed breakout. While non-inflamed acne is quite common, inflammation does not occur in every case of acne.
PCOS and Acne (PCOS) occurs when there is a hormonal imbalance, namely an increase in androgen (testosterone) production. High levels of androgens are known to increase the amount of oil produced by sebaceous glands, which contributes to acne. ‘Dr.Dinesh kapur’
