Basic Facts About Acne

Almost everyone gets acne

Close to 100% of people between the ages of twelve and seventeen have at least an occasional whitehead, blackhead or pimple, regardless of race or ethnicity. Many of these young people are able to manage their acne with over-the-counter (nonprescription) treatments. For some, however, acne is more serious. In fact, by their mid-teens, more than 40% of adolescents have acne severe enough to require some treatment by a physician.

In most cases, acne starts between the ages of ten and thirteen and usually lasts for five to ten years. It normally goes away on its own sometime in the early twenties. However, acne can persist into the late twenties or thirties or even beyond. Some people get acne for the first time as adults.

Acne affects young men and young women about equally, but there are differences. Young men are more likely than young women to have more severe, longer lasting forms of acne. Despite this fact, young men are less likely than young women to visit a dermatologist for their acne. In contrast, young women are more likely to have intermittent acne due to hormonal changes associated with their menstrual cycle and acne caused by cosmetics. These kinds of acne may afflict young women well into adulthood.

Acne lesions are most common on the face, but they can also occur on the neck, chest, back, shoulders, scalp, and upper arms and legs.

Acne also has significant economic impact. Americans spend well over a hundred million dollars a year for nonprescription acne treatments, not even taking into account special soaps and cleansers. But there are also the costs of prescription therapies, visits to physicians and time lost from school or work.

Acne myths and misconceptions

Myth #1: Acne is caused by poor hygiene. If you believe this myth, and wash your skin hard and frequently, you can actually make your acne worse. Acne is not caused by dirt or surface skin oils. Although excess oils, dead skin and a day's accumulation of dust on the skin looks unsightly, they should not be removed by hand scrubbing. Vigorous washing and scrubbing will actually irritate the skin and make acne worse. The best approach to hygiene and acne: Gently wash your face twice a day with a mild soap, pat dry--and use an appropriate acne treatment for the acne.

Myth #2: Acne is caused by diet. Extensive scientific studies have not found a connection between diet and acne. In other words, food does not cause acne. Not chocolate. Not french fries. Not pizza. Nonetheless, some people insist that certain foods affect their acne. In that case, avoid those foods. Besides, eating a balanced diet always makes sense. However, according to the scientific evidence, if acne is being treated properly, there's no need to worry about food affecting the acne.

Myth #3: Acne is caused by stress. The ordinary stress of day-to-day living is not an important factor in acne. Severe stress that needs medical attention is sometimes treated with drugs that can cause acne as a side effect. If you think you may have acne related to a drug prescribed for stress or depression, you should consult your physician.

Myth #4: Acne is just a cosmetic disease. Yes, acne does affect the way people look and is not otherwise a serious threat to a person’s physical health. However, acne can result in permanent physical scars--plus, acne itself as well as its scars can affect the way people feel about themselves to the point of affecting their lives.

Myth #5: You just have to let acne run its course. The truth is, acne can be cleared up. If the acne products you have tried haven’t worked, consider seeing a dermatologist. With the products available today, there is no reason why someone has to endure acne or get acne scars.

Scarring from acne

Scarring occurs because acne is a disease that affects the skin, and the skin responds by trying to repair itself. The process of repair can produce a scar that looks like a pit in the skin. But not every mark left on the skin by acne is a scar. And scarring can sometimes be avoided when acne is treated and cleared.

A red mark on the skin called an erythematous macule will fade in four to six months after an acne outbreak - but it may get temporarily redder when your skin gets hot or when you exercise. This red macule is not a scar, and is not permanent. In a dark skinned person, the macule may appear as a darker patch on the skin. This is not a scar, either.

The scars of acne are more than just physical--they can be emotional as well. Acne can be successfully treated in all cases. Without treatment the results can be heartbreaking, both psychologically and physically. People simply hate the way they look with acne. To one degree or another, people with acne often withdraw from life. Until recently, these psychosocial effects of acne have not been fully appreciated.

The permanent, disfiguring physical scars of acne have the same psychosocial effect on people as the acne. Such people carry both the physical and emotional scars with them for their entire lives. While there is no way to predict how bad someone's scarring will be, clearing the acne prevents scars from happening.

The good news is that acne can usually be treated. Shy people might get up the nerve to ask someone out on a date. Quiet students may become outspoken. Grades could improve. They may seek jobs. Freedom from acne is something virtually everyone can experience -- but sometimes it takes a dermatologist's help.

When to consult a dermatologist for acne?

A person may try to cure acne with home remedies or nonprescription items from the drugstore. A person may decide it is time to see a doctor. With a dermatologist's help, almost every case of acne can be cleared up.

If any of the following apply, make an appointment:

The results achieved with nonprescription acne products are unsatisfactory

  • The acne interferes with enjoyment of life
  • There are acne scars in addition to acne lesions
  • The acne lesions are large and painful
  • Acne is causing dark patches to appear in a dark skinned person

Some people have been to dermatologists without much luck at clearing up their acne. Perhaps it is time to try again and to consider seeing a skin specialist, a dermatologist. If seeing a dermatologist has not produced good results, perhaps it is time for a second opinion.
