Abstract

Virtually no one escapes adolescence and early adulthood unscathed by acne. However, advanced methods of therapy are now available to deal with all but the most recalcitrant forms of the condition. Unfortunately, stereotypical notions about causes and treatments still persist, and as Dr Landow points out, patient education to dispell these myths is an important part of management.
