Acne Vulgaris


— Acne vulgaris on face.


Acne can occur in adolescents and adults. It can be persistent, with onset usually during teenage
years. It affects up to 15% of women, and is reported to be less common in men. Acne can be
predominantly inflammatory, with papules (zits) and pustules, or predominantly comedonal (whiteheads).
Deep inflammatory lesions and macrocomedones may result in scarring.

How does adult acne differ from acne in adolescents?

The acne is very persistent and may continue into the 30s and 40s.
Affected women often complain of large pores.
Premenstrual flares are common.
Macrocomedones (large whiteheads) are more common than in younger individuals. Environmental factors particularly oily face creams, smoking and stress are aggravating factors.


How is acne treated?

Mild acne can be treated with creams containing benzoyl peroxide, antibiotics and tretinoin.
Moderate acne may require oral medications such as antibiotics and oral contraceptives.
Severe acne can be treated with oral isotretinoin. It is usually well tolerated and can result in long term cure. However, it must not be taken in pregnancy.
