What are Propionibacterium acnes?
Acne is the most common condition. There are different types and the most common is acne vulgaris. Beneath the skin are hundreds of tiny sebaceous glands that produce oil. These pass through the pores to the skin and keep your skin smooth. Hormonal changes can stimulate the glands causing them to produce extra oil, clogging pores. When the pores become clogged and the oil gets trapped under the skin, a certain bacteria called P.acnes thrive. The skin becomes irritated, swollen and red and pimples start to form.
