CIDP - Acne Vulgaris and Associated Impact on Quality of Life

 

Our dermatologist, Dr Gitanjali Petkar, has recently been requested to write an article for the Journal of Clinical Studies magazine. As an expert, she chose to focus on Acne Vulgaris and Associated Impact on Quality of Life.

Acne vulgaris or 'pimples' is a very common inflammatory skin disease affecting young adults all over the world, irrespective of race, ethnicity and geographical location. Prevalence of acne during adolescence is common enough to label it as a physiological process associated with other changes occurring during puberty, however, the underlying inflammatory processes involved classify it as a disease. Another important aspect associated with acne which affects the person psychologically and socially is the disfigurement involving the face. Psychological burden and  social and emotional impairment associated with facial acne can be as devastating as that of a variety of chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, epilepsy and asthma.
