The impact of acne

Acne vulgaris, commonly known as acne, is a chronic skin condition characterized by blocked hair follicles. Whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, and nodules are all forms of acne.

While acne may occur at any age, it most commonly presents during puberty and continues into adulthood. Acne affects more than 85 percent of teenagers and although not life-threatening the condition has a negative effect on both physical and psychosocial well-being.

The lesions and scarring of acne can cause disfigurement, decreased self-esteem, depression and decreased prospects for employment. Some studies estimate the psychological and emotional burden to be similar to that associated with epilepsy, asthma, diabetes and arthritis.
