  • Staphylococcus
  • Preliminary research shows healthy pores are only colonized by P. acnes, while unhealthy ones universally include the nonpore-resident Staphylococcus epidermidis, amongst other bacterial contaminants. (wikipedia.org)
  • Whether this is a root causality, just opportunistic and a side effect, or a more complex pathological duality between P. acnes and this particular Staphylococcus species is not known. (wikipedia.org)

  • sebum
  • In general, acne is a process where sebaceous glands -- microscopic glands in the skin that produce sebum -- become clogged. (zocdoc.com)
  • We know hormones cause increased production of the sebum, therefore teenagers are most commonly afflicted with acne during puberty. (zocdoc.com)
  • In these follicles, P. acnes bacteria use sebum, cellular debris and metabolic byproducts from the surrounding skin tissue as their primary sources of energy and nutrients. (wikipedia.org)
  • Elevated production of sebum by hyperactive sebaceous glands (sebaceous hyperplasia) or blockage of the follicle can cause P. acnes bacteria to grow and multiply. (wikipedia.org)
  • It can proliferate in sebum and cause inflamed pustules (pimples) characteristic of acne. (wikipedia.org)
  • rosacea

  • Acne inversa (L. invertō, "upside down") and acne rosacea (rosa, "rose-colored" + -āceus, "forming") are not true forms of acne and respectively refer to the skin conditions hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) and rosacea. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acne rosacea is not caused by bacterial infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • The differential diagnosis includes acne vulgaris, streptococcal cellulitis, and Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome, as these conditions can also rarely manifest with a similar edema, as well as other forms of rosacea, lupus erythematosus, and sarcoidosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is also somewhat effective for hidradenitis suppurativa and some cases of severe acne rosacea. (wikipedia.org)
  • It can be persistent or recurring and resembles particularly rosacea and to some extent acne and allergic dermatitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other skin diseases which may resemble perioral dermatitis include: Rosacea Acne vulgaris Seborrheic dermatitis Allergic contact dermatitis Irritant contact dermatitis The cause of perioral dermatitis is unclear. (wikipedia.org)
  • infection
  • P. acnes is an opportunistic pathogen, causing a range of postoperative and device-related infections e.g., surgery, post-neurosurgical infection, joint prostheses, shunts and prosthetic heart valves. (wikipedia.org)
  • Whether a skin condition classifies as acne depends on the amount of comedones and infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • follicles
  • P. acnes bacteria live deep within follicles and pores, away from the surface of the skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acne, also known as acne vulgaris, is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although HS shares certain common features with acne vulgaris, such as a tendency to clog skin follicles with skin cell debris, the condition otherwise lacks the defining features of acne and is therefore considered a distinct skin disorder. (wikipedia.org)

  • infections
  • The subspecies of P. acnes that cause these infections of otherwise sterile tissues (prior to medical procedures), however, are the same subspecies found on the skin of individuals who do not have acne-prone skin, so are likely local contaminants. (wikipedia.org)
