In brief: Acne
Pimples originate in pores in the skin.
Pores contain cells that produce hair and glands that secrete oil called sebum. The body is covered in skin pores that are susceptible to becoming clogged with dirt, oil and bacteria, which causes pimples. The national institutes of health indicates that even though acne is most common on the face, it also can occur on legs.
