What is acne?
People know acne as the red, inflamed, spotty skin that mainly affects younger adults and teenagers. Did you know that adult-onset acne, in those over the age of 30 is on the increase for reasons we don't yet fuly understand? There are many clinical susets of acne, which are characterised by a bacterial inflammation in skin follicles by the bacterium p. acnes. This bacteria lies below the skin surface making it very hard to treat with the traditional methods of antibiotics or topical skin treatments that Dr. Sam himself prescribes in his role as a GP. If untreated acne can lead to scarring. Both the inflammatory phase and the scarring phase of acne have been closely linked to psychological effects, including social anxiety, depression and relationship issues in those affected by it. Access to NHS expert dermatology is increasingly difficult in the currect climate and many people with acne have already exhausted use of products available from pharmacies.
