To be strictly accurate a blemish is anything; zit, wart, a cut, mole, red mark, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, scar etc. etc.

Indeed. From dictionary.com:

blemish

n : a mark or flaw that spoils the appearance of something (especially on a person's body); "a facial blemish"

It doesn't just refer to acne, and when used in reference to acne, it's pretty much anything and everything.

blemish is basically just a nicer word for it's grosser cousins: zit, pimple and acne. though, as mentioned above, it can be anything from a scar to a mole. i think its generally used as an acne term though.

FWIW people also talk about blemishes on fruit; or if somebody breaks the law when they normally wouldn't, they talk about it being 'a blemish on their record', neither of which has anything to do with acne.

All acne marks are blemishes, but not all blemishes are acne.
