    • Associated with the follicle are sebaceous glands and the arrector pili smooth muscle fiber bundle.
    • These drugs penetrate the follicle and sebaceous gland well and decrease colonization by P. acnes.
    • Inside the gland, multiple follicle pouches join to form excretory ducts, which empty into the urethra.
    • Then, a fluidfilled space develops, to form the antrum of a tertiary follicle.
    • Retention of the sebaceous secretions, and dilation of the follicle, may lead to cyst formation.
