On December 27, Probiotic Action responds to a video posted on WebMD regarding adult acne and the emotional impact it can have on patients, regardless of their age.
The video highlights Benjamin Stoff, an adult acne patient. “[Acne is] kind of embarrassing to have as an adult... and it’s also kind of difficult to remember to do all the elements of the regimen,” he said in the WebMD video, referring to the multiple steps that some adult acne treatments require.
According to the video, while most people think of acne as a problem that many only have to face during puberty, 25- 40 percent of adult men and at least half of all adult women suffer from it. The article reports that acne can lead to a decrease in happiness and quality of life, on par with patients who have much more serious conditions such as epilepsy, asthma and diabetes.
There are also a small number of patients that “had clear skin as teenagers, [and] suddenly show up in our office as twenty of thirty year olds and it’s their first time having acne,” said Jamie MacKelfresh, a dermatologist from Emory University. According to the article, these patients can face an even more difficult emotional challenge, since they are not used to dealing with the condition.
Social situations can be especially troubling for people with acne, since it is so difficult to hide. Depression, social phobias and anxiety can all be linked to acne, reports WebMD. However, dermatologists say that using adult acne treatments in order to clear up pimples and redness is the best way to help the emotional trauma that acne patients go through.
Fernando Perez, a spokesperson for Probiotic Action, responds to the video by saying that while some adults see acne as an embarrassing condition, they should remember that they are not alone in facing the condition. “We all see the statistics on how many people have adult acne, yet people still feel like they are the only ones that are suffering through it,” Perez said. “This is what leads to social anxiety. If you use the correct [adult acne treatments and remember that many adults have acne as well, you will regain your confidence.”
