Although you may not notice a pimple until it is glaring you in the face, pimples don’t just form overnight. Acne is formed through an extended process when dead skin cells mix with excess oil (sebum). This mixture clogs the pore, causing swelling. Bacteria grows within this mix which cause infection and pus.
Inflammation develops within the oil gland and follicle, resulting in red, angry bumps in the skin. When acne develops deep within the skin a cyst may develop and gets filled with oil. If the cyst wall ruptures and the oil becomes exposed to the deeper skin layers, a strong inflammatory reaction occurs.
