Symptoms of Acne

Acne can occur anywhere on the body. However, acne most often appears in areas where there is a high concentration of sebaceous glands, including the following:

  • face
  • chest
  • upper back
  • shoulders
  • neck

The following are the most common symptoms of acne. However, each child may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:

  • Blackheads

Blackheads are small, dark spots (about the size of a pinhead) caused by a small plug in the opening of a follicle (pore).

  • Whiteheads

Whiteheads are white raised bumps caused by collections of oil and skin in pores

  • pus-filled lesions that may be painful
  • nodules (solid, raised bumps)

The symptoms of acne may resemble other skin conditions. Always consult your child's physician for a diagnosis.
