Common Causes of Pimple and Acne

Did you ever imagine yourself having pimples before function? Well anyone can barely imagine how it feels to have pimple getting all the attention unless they went through the same situation.

It's pretty irritating and embarrassing. Everyone gets busy in hiding it instead of finding out what's causing it. You can only solve a problem when you know what's actually causing it. Before going for a solution mask you have to prevent it too. It happens to almost everyone once in a while, so don't worry. You are not alone. I am going to tell you all possible causes and also what you should and shouldn't do. 

Don't confuse yourself with pimple and acne. You have to know whether you have pimple or acne. Their treatment and solution is different.


Pimples (zits or spots) are nothing but small pustule. These pimples occur when your skin produces too much oil. The skin pores get clogged with excess build-up of oil and dead skin cells . This allows bacteria to grow, causing redness and swelling. Pimple might pop up any where in your face , neck, back, chest and shoulders.
Pimples aren't something major. You can get rid of it pretty easily if you stay cautious about it.


If you have one or two pimple once in a while then its just a pimple. But if you have frequent breakouts with lots of pus-filled pimples then you may have acne.
The acne that happens in the back side of your body is known as back acne.
Acne is uglier than pimple. It's not that easy to get rid of it but also not hard. You can try home remedies carefully but if they don't work then I would suggest you to consult a skin doctor or a dermatologist.
