We study acne in this episode – a common skin problem that affects almost everyone at some time during their life. Acne is a skin condition that has a number of causes, with a number of factors leading to it. It’s extremely common especially in adolescents and young adults. Eight out of ten Australians will develop acne during their life with about 5% experiencing severe acne.
This episode explores
- what causes acne,
- how to recognise the different types of acne, and
- discusses the treatment options now available.
Associate Professor Alvin Chong and Dr Tom Kovitwanichkanont examine acne with senior consultant dermatologist, Dr Belinda Welsh, who has a sub-specialty interest in acne. Dr Welsh has over 20 years of experience as a practicing dermatologist with a special interest in acne, laser therapy and managing acne scarring.
