Acne is the most common skin disease during adolescence and early adulthood. Adolescent acne in females starts between the ages of 14 and 17 and in males between the ages of 16 and 19. Males are affected more severely than females. Eighty-five percent of high school students will have some acne. Ten percent of those with adolescent acne will continue to suffer from it into their 20's and 30's. And sometimes "adult acne" will begin in the 20's, 30's,, 40's and later years. This continues due to stress and fatigue which can cause increased production of hormones by the adrenal gland with increased levels of androgens. These hormones worsen acne. Six percent of females and eight percent of males in their fifties and later still suffer from the symptoms of adult acne (acne rosacea). Acne rosacea affects more than 17 million adult Americans and approximately 60 million adults in other countries.
Adolescent acne usually begins 1 or 2 years before puberty and is caused by stimulation of the facial sebaceous glands by androgens, the male hormones. (Women also produce small quantities of male hormones; this is the basis of acne in women.) It is thought that acne sufferers, rather than having higher levels of the hormones, actually have sebaceous glands that are more sensitive to the hormone.
Most acne suffers have gained much knowledge in their battle with this skin condition, but unfortunately, most of the gained knowledge has not been helpful in solving the problem. Sadly most information available is about acne treatments that do not work, which results in years of frustration for the acne sufferer as usually they continue seeking information and migrate from dermatologist to dermatologist for years in their search for the best acne treatment answer. Knowledge of the symptoms does not solve the 'cause or etiology' of acne.
Acne is caused by four factors:
|White Heads||Mild Acne|
|Comedonal Acne||Acne Papules|
