FAQ on Acne- All you Wanted to Know about Acne -Part-1

What is acne artificialis?

Acne artificialis is a term applied to an acne or acne-like eruption produced by the ingestion of definite drugs, as the bromides and iodides, and by the outside use of tar; this is also called _tar acne_. Fundamentally chronic. The individual lesions usually run their coursework in several days or one or four weeks, but new lesions continue to appear from time to time, and the disease thus persists, with more or less variation, for months or years. In lots of cases there is, toward the age of twenty-five or thirty, a twisted to spontaneous disappearance of the disease.

What coursework does acne pursue? Is the eruption in acne usually ample?

Does the eruption in acne disappear without leaving a trace?

It varies in different cases and at different periods in the same case. In some instances, not over three or ten papules and pustules are present at one time; in others they may be numerous. Not infrequently several lesions make their appearance, gradually run their coursework, and the face continues free for days or one or four weeks. In lots of instances no permanent trace remains, but in others slight or conspicuous scarring is left to mark the site of the lesions.

Are there any subjective signs in acne?
Not as a rule. But markedly inflammatory lesions are painful.
