Acne

Do You Have Acne?

Acne vulgaris (or simply acne) is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of seborrhea (scaly red skin), comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules (pinheads), nodules (large papules), and pimples.  In adolescence, acne is usually caused by an increase in androgens such as testosterone, which occurs during puberty, regardless of gender.  Acne more often affects skin with a greater number of oil glands; these areas include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back.

What Triggers Acne?

Many things can cause acne and it usually depends on the individual.

  • Fried and/or spicy foods
  • Chocolate
  • Milk or other dairy products
  • Coffee
  • Sugar
  • Cosmetics
  • Excessive sweating
  • Stress

When you visit our offices for acne studies, remember, you have to have a certain number of acne pimples (white heads, black heads as well as inflamed areas of redness) on your face to qualify for the study so we can effectively test the research medicine.
