The clinical symptoms of acne are of polymorphic nature and its lesions can be investigated in two groups, primary and secondary. The primary acne lesions include open and closed plugged pores, papules, pustules, and nodules. Developing mostly from primary lesions, the secondary lesions include abscesses, cysts, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, signs of excoriation, and scars. The severity of primary lesions determines the disease activity.
