Acne is an extremely common problem effecting people of all ages. I often treat a number of adults who have developed acne for the first time as an adult, and who feel that this is quite unusual. In fact, adult acne is quite common. In addition, adults often present with rosacea, a problem associated with sun-exposure where people get increased numbers of blood vessels on their face often accompanied by acne-type pustules. In my opinion, a dermatologist is the best place to start when treating acne or rosacea. I feel that for most people, the prescription remedies work better with less irritation than most over-the-counter treatments. So my advice is to start with a dermatologist. Acne treatments can range from topical creams, lotions and gels, to oral antibiotics or Accutane treatment.
