Acne and other skin infections is caused by the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes ( P. acnes).
How bacteria cause Acne,whiteheads,blackhead or other skin infection.
A bacteria the name is Propionibacterium acnes ( P. acnes ), lives at the base of the hair follicle. P. acnes survives naturally in this low-oxygen environment, living off of sebum and cellular debris. When a trigger of some kind¢ like hereditary factors, hormonal changes of puberty, or stress¢ boosts sebum production in the sebaceous glands, the oversupply of sebum results in an oversupply of P. acnes.
Effect of P.acnes releasing substances :
P. acnes naturally secretes substances that help it break down sebum, which it then consumes as food. When numbers of P. acnes increase, that secretion irritates surrounding tissue, resulting in a quick response from the immune system that causes inflammation.
Combine inflammation, cellular debris, bacterial proliferation, and white blood cells and you have a plugged hair follicle. With the freeway to the surface of the skin blocked, the backup results in a dead-cell traffic jam under the skin, and you start to see or feel a small or large, reddened bump known throughout the land as a zit¢ or a pimple.
Whiteheads : It Occur for the same reason, but the white blood cells, sebum, and other substances combine to create a yellow pus that bulges under the skin.
Blackhead : A blackhead is when those same substances are exposed, by an open pore, into the air. It is not dirt that causes the blackhead to darken, but a chemical reaction to the air.
