Three common factors that contribute to acne are: the overproduction of oil by enlarged oil glands in the skin, blockage of follicles, and build up of dead skin cells. Acne develops as a result of blockages in the hair follicles. The earliest pathologic changes are the excessive deposition of the protein keratin and oily sebum in the hair follicle resulting in the formation of a plug.  A microcomedo may enlarge to form an open comedo (blackhead) or closed comedo. The dark color of a blackhead occurs due to oxidation of the skin pigment melanin. Comedones result from the clogging of sebaceous glands with sebum, a naturally occurring oil, and dead skin cells. In these conditions, the naturally occurring largely commensal bacterium Propionibacterium acnes can cause inflammation within and around the follicle, leading to inflammatory lesions (papules, infected pustules, or nodules) in the dermis around the microcomedo or comedone, which results in redness and may result in scarring or hyperpigmentation.
