Acne is the
name for those red bumps called pimples that a lot of kids and teens get on their
skin. When your skin's
oil glands make too much oil, the tiny holes on your skin called pores get stopped
up with oil, dead skin, and bacteria. Then the skin around these clogged pores can
swell and look lumpy or red. Usually, this happens during puberty,
when your body is changing from a kid into an adult.
