With 60 million Americans suffering from acne, the demand for help has never been greater. A new website pioneered by physicians specializing in acne treatment aims to be the definitive medical resource for this condition.
Acnesource.org differs from currently available online resources of its kind by providing continuously updated acne news via RSS feed. Recent news items featured by the site include ‘Antibiotic Treatment and Acne’, ‘Registry for Accutane Patients Debuts’ and ‘Serious Skin Care: Beyond the Basics of Soap.’
The site also provides comprehensive, physician-reviewed information on the causes of acne, acne treatments and acne prevention, including a glossary ranging from ‘Accutane’ to ‘zit.’. Treatments including over the counter acne medications, prescription drugs and advanced laser acne treatments are described in detail. You can also find information on treatment for acne scars on the site.
The site debunks common myths about acne, answers frequently asked questions and provides links to further resources. Among the myths refuted by the site is that acne is a condition only affecting teenagers. In fact, 20 percent of adults have active acne. The widely circulated myth that eating junk food causes acne is also untrue, according to the site.
Visitors can also discuss their experiences on a message board, an important outlet given the isolation and emotional issues that affect many acne sufferers.
The site also includes a directory of dermatologists specializing in acne treatment. The site is currently accepting listings directly from physicians, as well as referrals from patients.
Acnesource.org is a physician-maintained website providing comprehensive, objective and accurate information on the treatment of acne.
