What are Pimples?
Pimple is a type of acne that results from blocked pores, which may be due to excess production of oil (sebum), dead skin cells, and bacteria, getting trapped in the pores of the skin.
Acne is a long term condition of skin involving oil glands at the base of a hair follicle that can cause many non-inflammatory and inflammatory skin lesions, such as pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, cysts, etc.
