Acne vulgaris is a common, and potentially disfiguring, chronic skin condition. It mainly affects people in their second and third decade with a peak of an estimated 85% of the population between the ages of 15 and 17 years, but can also occur at other ages. The main features of acne are comedones, pustules and inflammation, predominantly on the face and trunk. Treatment approaches can be wide-ranging and effective, and it is important to recognise the effects that acne can have on a patient’s mental health and life at work and home.
