acne - Chronic disease of the skin, most frequently caused by obstruction of the ducts of the sebaceous or oil glands. Several forms are recognized, the commonest being acne vulgaris, which appears most frequently on the face, back of the neck, back, and chest. The first sign is an eruption of small red pimples, which may suppurate, and often in the centres of these a small black point, a "blackhead" or comedo, the obstructed termination of the duct, may be seen. Treatment is by local applications and building up the constitution by healthy living.
