Acne Vulgaris-Background

Acne vulgaris is a complex skin disease that, due to its physical manifestations, can lead to significant emotional suffering. Unlike classical infections, when a few cells of a certain pathogen from external environment invade our organism and manage to win over our immune system, the diseases caused by skin microbes are more complex because the same microbes that appear harmless or even beneficial on the surface of our skin, can become pathogenic under certain conditions. Changes in the skin environment or skin permeability in combination with reduced effectiveness of our immune system can lead to skin disease.
