Middle-age acne is also called as the adult-onset acne as adults who have never had acne even as teenagers tend to suddenly breakout into painful, deep seated and inflamed pimples and nodules. The pimples generally form on the chin, jaw line and around the mouth. Apart from the adult onset acne, sometimes teenage acne can persist well into one’s 30s, 40s, and even 50s. This type of acne that does not clear by mid twenties is called Persistent Acne. Adult acne is triggered off by stress, fluctuating hormones, birth control pills, hereditary factors etc. It can also be caused by improper use of cosmetics. Apart from these triggers, adult acne can also be a warning sign of an underlying medical condition like polycystic ovarian disease in which case along with acne, the patient may have other symptoms like excessive facial hair, irregular periods and weight gain. Therefore a thorough evaluation of every case and a specific approach as per the type of acne is essential.
