Acne is not only one of the most disturbing skin conditions for the people who suffer it, unfortunately, it is also one of the most challenging to treat.
It is estimated that acne affects around 9.4% of the total population worldwide. Although the prevalence of the disease varies among different cultures and ethnicities (probably due to different dietary patterns), adolescents and young adults are more susceptible to suffering it by far. Indeed, the hormonal changes that come with puberty are undoubtedly the primary trigger for acne. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), 85% of people in the US have suffered some form of acne between the ages of 12 and 24.
Nevertheless, acne can also appear in adulthood, at a much lower rate and usually in women, during pregnancy, menopause, menstruation, or triggered by some medications.
Acne is the most common skin disease that brings millions of people to seek the help of a dermatologist. Asking for professional advice is the first step you should take if you think you suffer from inflammatory acne and the best way to prevent its worsening and the formation of scars.
Besides the aesthetic consequences of acne and the potential self-esteem problems that this condition may cause, inflammatory acne can leave permanent scars if not kept under control on time.
