Acne's Silver Lining: Slower Aging of the Skin?

Posted 29 Sep 2016 by

THURSDAY, Sept. 29, 2016 – There's some potentially good news for people with a history of acne – their skin may age more slowly than those who didn't have to suffer mottled skin through adolescence. That's the suggestion of a British study that included just over 1,200 twins. One-quarter of them struggled with acne at some point in their life. "For many years, dermatologists have identified that the skin of acne sufferers appears to age more slowly than in those who have not experienced any acne in their lifetime. Whilst this has been observed in clinical settings, the cause of this was previously unclear," said lead researcher Dr. Simone Ribero. He is a dermatologist in the department of twin research and genetic epidemiology at King's College London. "Our findings suggest that the cause could be linked to the length of telomeres, which appears to be different in acne sufferers and ... Read more

Health Tip: Don't Ignore Acne

Posted 19 Jul 2016 by

-- Acne is more than just a nuisance and a blow to someone's good looks. Letting acne run its course is not the best advice, the American Academy of Dermatology says. The academy adds: Lack of treatment can lead to permanent scarring and dark spots. Treating and ridding your skin of acne can boost self-esteem. Ignoring acne isn't wise or necessary. There are a host of effective treatments available. Read more

Acne Treatment Differin Gel Approved for OTC Use

Posted 12 Jul 2016 by

MONDAY, July 11, 2016 – The once-daily acne treatment Differin Gel 0.1% (adapalene) has been approved for over-the counter use among people 12 and older, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said. It's the first among a class of drugs called retinoids to be made available over the counter to treat acne. The drug's active ingredient is the first new OTC acne treatment approved since the 1980s, the FDA said in a news release. Differin Gel 0.1% was first approved in 1996 as a prescription drug. Acne affects some 50 million people in the United States, mostly teens and young adults, the FDA said. Clusters of pimples most often form on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. The agency warned that women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breast feeding should get their doctor's approval before using the product. While no specific issues with pregnant or breast-feeding ... Read more

Posted 16 May 2016 by

-- If you're using acne products, you should take precautions to prevent a rare but serious allergic reaction. The American Academy of Dermatology offers this advice: See your dermatologist to discuss acne treatments that you'd like to use.

Contraception Safety Program for Acne Drug Failing in Canada

Posted 25 Apr 2016 by

MONDAY, April 25, 2016 – A Canadian program to prevent pregnancy in women who are taking the acne drug isotretinoin is failing because many women do not follow the program's recommendations, a new study finds. Isotretinoin increases the risk of birth defects and miscarriages, the researchers explained. First marketed as Accutane, isotretinoin is now sold under various brand names and aimed at patients with severe acne. The Canadian program recommends informed written consent, two negative pregnancy tests before beginning treatment with isotretinoin, and the use of two reliable birth control methods while taking the drug. The United States has similar safeguards in place. In 2005, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a program requiring doctors to enroll patients who take isotretinoin in a national registry to guard against serious side effects that had been linked to the ...

Misconceptions About Acne Still Common

Posted 4 Mar 2016 by

FRIDAY, March 4, 2016 – There are still plenty of negative and mistaken beliefs about people with acne, a new study finds. Researchers showed photos of acne and several common skin conditions to study participants and asked them their views about each condition. More than 62 percent said they were upset by the photos of acne. And more than 80 percent said they felt pity toward people with acne, the research revealed. Of even greater concern, more than two-thirds said they would be ashamed if they had acne and would find someone with acne unattractive. Forty-one percent said they would be uncomfortable being seen in public with someone with acne, and more than 44 percent said they would be uncomfortable touching a person with acne, the findings showed. Many of the study participants had common misconceptions about acne. Fifty-five percent mistakenly believed acne was caused by poor ... Read more

Double Up on Acne Treatments, New Guidelines Say

Posted 23 Feb 2016 by

TUESDAY, Feb. 23, 2016 – Combining treatments is the best way to combat acne, new guidelines from the American Academy of Dermatology state. "There are a variety of effective treatments available for acne, and dermatologists have found that combining two or more treatments is the best option for the majority of patients," Dr. Andrea Zaenglein, co-chair of the guidelines committee, said in an academy news release. "Recommended treatments include topical [skin] therapy, antibiotics, isotretinoin [Accutane is one brand] and oral contraceptives," she added. Acne affects up to 50 million Americans a year, according to the academy. When using antibiotics to treat moderate to severe acne, prescription skin medications should be used at the same time. After patients complete a course of antibiotics, they should continue using topical, or skin, therapy to manage their acne, according to the ... Read more

Health Tip: Acne Has Lasting Effects

Posted 15 Dec 2015 by

-- Acne may be most visible on the skin, but for many people, its effects are greater than just temporary blemishes. Acne can lead to these physical and emotional issues, says the American Academy of Dermatology: Developing poor self-esteem and isolation. Developing depression, which can become severe. Developing dark spots that remain after acne has cleared. These may last for months or years. Developing scars. Read more

Many Patients With Acne Take Antibiotics Too Long: Study

Posted 30 Oct 2015 by

FRIDAY, Oct. 30, 2015 – Many patients with severe acne remain on antibiotics too long before they are prescribed more effective medication, researchers say. A team led by Dr. Seth Orlow, chair of dermatology at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, reviewed the medical records of 137 patients over the age of 12. All were treated for severe acne at Langone between 2005 and 2014. On average, the patients were kept on antibiotics for 11 months before their doctors decided the antibiotics were not effective. Patients were then switched to the acne medication isotretinoin (brand name Accutane). The study also found that it took an average of nearly six months from the time doctors first mentioned Accutane until patients began taking the drug. Reasons for the long delay included strict controls placed on Accutane due to its risk of causing birth defects, and concerns about other ... Read more

Psoriasis, Cold Sores Most Stigmatized Skin Disorders: Survey

Posted 9 Oct 2015 by

FRIDAY, Oct. 9, 2015 – Psoriasis and cold sores top the list of stigmatized skin conditions, a new survey indicates, but experts say much of the ill will directed at sufferers is misguided. Surveying 56 people, Boston researchers found that nearly 61 percent wrongly thought psoriasis – which produces widespread, scaly red skin lesions – looked contagious, and about nine in 10 said they would pity a person who had it. About four in 10 said herpes simplex, or cold sore, is the most bothersome skin condition. "We knew from other studies that psoriasis seemed to be more stigmatizing than other skin diseases, [and] we did this study to try to find out why," said study author Dr. Alexa Kimball, a dermatology professor at Harvard Medical School. "We suspected that the fact that it looked infectious could be part of the reason people reacted strongly to it, but we didn't expect that reaction ... Read more

Health Tip: Shave Properly

Posted 18 Sep 2015 by

-- Taking extra care while shaving can help prevent nicks, cuts and ingrown hair. The American Academy of Dermatology advises: To soften the hair and skin, shower or wet the skin before shaving. Lather with a shaving gel or cream. Use a fresh blade. A disposable blade should be tossed after 5 to 7 uses. Shave in the direction of the growing hair. Acne-prone shavers should try both electric and disposable blades to see which is less irritating. Shave carefully with a fresh blade, using light pressure. Read more

Neglecting Teen Health May Lead to Bigger Problems as Adults

Posted 17 Aug 2015 by

MONDAY, Aug. 17, 2015 – Nearly one in five teens has specific health care needs that are not receiving attention, and this may set them up for poorer physical and mental health in adulthood, a new study contends. "Previous research had shown that lack of medical care in this age group is associated with poor health and higher risk behaviors at the time. But, it wasn't known that these poor health outcomes persisted into adulthood," said lead author Dr. Dougal Hargreaves, a pediatrician and health services researcher at University College London, England, and at Boston Children's Hospital. The study was published online Aug. 17 in the journal Pediatrics. The researchers analyzed data from 14,800 participants in a long-term U.S. study of teen and adult health. The teens first answered questions in 1994-1995 when they were, on average, 16 years old. Then they responded in another ... Read more
