Adult acne is an inflammatory skin disorder which is commonly seen in people aged between 30 and 50
years. Adult acne is more likely to be seen in people with fair skin. The exact reasons for adult acne is
unknown but is believed to relate to the changes or imbalance in an individual’s body hormones. It is
believed that the hormonal changes of an individual, at various times in his/her life, leads to the increases in
the amount of oil in the skin which results to clogged pores or hair follicles in the skin. This leads waste
particles to build up under the surface of one’s skin which becomes infected by bacteria and generates acne
or the spots suffered by acne sufferers.


Hence the main aim of any best adult acne treatment should include prevention of scarring, clearance of
acne, and morbidity minimization. Acne sufferers must be advised to cleanse their skin gently using a non-
comedogenic moisturizer. It is also advisable not to use harsh skin products and avoid picking and rubbing
the skin. Consuming more amount of water can also help skin stay healthy.


People who are suffering with mild to severe adult acne can be treated with tropical or oral medicines. For
severe form of adult acne systemic therapy is mainly used. A wide assortment of systemic agents used to
clear adult acne includes isotretinoin, interlesional corticosteroid injection, oral contraceptives, and oral
antibiotics (tetracycline and erythromycin).


In United States, some of the most popular prescription topical antimicrobials used to treat adult acne
include benzoyl peroxide, azelaic acid, erythromycin, clindamycin, and sodium sulfacetamide. Some of the
various types of prescription topical retinoids used in the treatment of adult acne include tazarotene,
adapalene, and tretinoin.


Most treatments for adult acne are similar to ordinary acne. Remember not every popular adult acne
