Almost 70 percent of teenagers passing through puberty suffer from acne. This happens primarily because of the hormonal changes taking place in the body during puberty. However other factors like genetics, vitamin deficiency, stress and atmospheric pollution may also play a contributing role. The various triggers put together increase the oil production causing bacterial infection and acne breakouts. The puberty acne comes up in various forms like whiteheads, blackheads, pus filled pimples or nodules. Other than the face, the acne can also come up on the chest, back and arms. Studies have shown that acne in puberty is more severe in males as compared to females due to excessive production of androgen which is a male hormone. The nodular or the cystic type of acne generally tends to leave irreversible scars or pits on the face. Therefore like any other disorder, acne needs early medical intervention so that any disfiguring of the skin or permanent scars on the face can be avoided.
