Acne is one of the most common skin diseases affecting more than 80% of the population. It is a significant dermatological disease requiring appropriate and immediate medical treatment especially in mild, moderate to severe cases. Unfortunately, more than 70% of stubborn acne sufferers never seek medical attention.
Whether acne occurs as a teen or during adulthood, persistent, moderate to severe acne can cause sufferers physical damage and scarring to the skin, as well as significant emotional distress that can erode self esteem and confidence. Immediate action is the key to success when resolving this sort of acne.
Managing this dermatological condition requires the sufferer to take a very systematic approach:
Step 1 – See the Doctor immediately for a skin assessment.
Step 2 – The trigger and risk factors associated with the patient’s acne will be identified.
Step 3 – Finally an acne action plan will be developed to manage and resolve the patient’s acne.
