  • A whitehead is a type of acne that forms when dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria become trapped within one of your pores. Unlike a blackhead, a whitehead forms under the surface of a closed pore.
  • Your skin has tiny holes called pores, which can become blocked by oil, bacteria, dead skin cells, and dirt. When this occurs, you may develop a pimple or "zit." If your skin is repeatedly affected by this condition, you may have acne.
  • A surgical wound is a cut or an incision in the skin that is usually made by a scalpel during surgery.
  • Cuts and scratches are areas of damage on the surface of the skin. Find out how to treat them and when to seek medical attention.
  • Also known as varicella, chickenpox is a virus that often affects children. It is characterized by itchy, red blisters that appear all over the body.
