Acne Symptoms and Causes

Acne is a common skin disease that causes pimples. Pimples form when hair follicles under your skin clog up. Most pimples form on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Anyone can get Acne, but it is common in teenagers and young adults. It is not serious, but it can cause scars.

No one knows exactly what causes Acne. Hormone changes, such as those during the teenage years and pregnancy, probably play a role. There are many myths about what causes Acne. Chocolate and greasy foods are often blamed, but there is little evidence that foods have much effect on Acne in most people. Another common myth is that dirty skin causes Acne; however, blackheads and pimples are not caused by dirt. Stress doesn't cause Acne, but stress can make it worse.

If you have Acne

  • Clean your skin gently
  • Try not to touch your skin
  • Avoid the sun

Treatments for Acne include medicines and creams.

Acne Clinical Trials and Studies

Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
