Abstract: Acne is very common among teenagers but very few have actually used treatments. These findings suggest that it may be worthwhile to better inform the community about acne and its treatment options to reduce acne severity and its impact on those affected.

“…20 In our study, genetic factors, infection, and stress were less commonly indicated as causes of acne than in some other studies. Our findings indicating that girls used local acne treatment more often than boys concur with the findings of Nijsten et al 12 Our results confirm that the use of certified topical medications for acne is low. 4,8,11,19 Our results on perceptions of cosmetics as triggers of acne are similar to those obtained by Tan et al 19 However, girls in our study were more likely than boys to consider cosmetics as a cause of Figure 3 Beliefs about factors that cause or exacerbate acne according to the presence of acne (n = 934).…”

Had this been a community-based study, we believe that a greater proportion of acne sufferers would have used non-medical treatments or done nothing, as it has been previously reported that only a minority of acne patients seek medical attention (3, 12, 13).
