Acne in adult women

Acne is usually seen as a teenager's problem. One out of five adult women battle with acne.

Dermatologists say adult acne is primarily triggered by hormonal changes brought about by stress, pregnancy, and some medications.

Anything that stimulates hormone production will worsen acne.

A lot of women don't seek help because they're too busy or too embarrassed. Another problem is that many of the treatments don't work. Sixty percent of women either don't respond to standard acne treatments or build up a tolerance for frequently used medications.

But experts believe women can fight back.

There are many treatments available for acne sufferers. Your dermatologist may prescribe topical (and sometimes oral) antibiotics, sulphur creams, and hydrocortisone lotions. One of the most popular acne treatment involves the use of retinoid drugs. Some doctors prescribe birth control pills. Consult your dermatologist.
