Doctor Anne Marie McNeill is a board-certified dermatologist with a PhD in pharmacology. Her practice is located in Orange County, CA. She sat down to discuss acne, which no one seems to be able to get rid of, no matter what their age.
Is it my imagination, or is everyone more stricken with acne these days?
Dr. McNeill: There does appear to be more prevalence and persistence. Interestingly, we are finding that certain cultures, such as Japan, are experiencing more acne compared with previous generations. In other, remote cultures, such as tribal communities in Africa, there is still no incidence of acne.
