The frustration of having acne after adolescence.
Acne is a common disorder that affects about 85% of adolescents. However, in recent years this disease has increased significantly in other age group, those over 25 years. It is noted that in 12% of women untreated acne can continue until about 45 years old. In men this is a less common phenomenon affecting 3% of cases.
It can occur to people who never had acne during adolescence and develop a major problem, or be a symptom that persists without improvement since puberty. In some cases acne remains latent years to reappear in adulthood.
Often as we said, it is prevalent in women, being located around the mouth, in the downstream sector of the cheeks and neck. In some cases may involve the chest and it is common to start a few days before the period.
