The age of acne sufferers is getting younger than ever, say U.S. dermatologists, who are reporting breakouts in children as young as seven.
Dermatologist Dr Zaenglein believes that the earlier onset of puberty is behind the rise in pediatric acne.
Most cases in pre-teens are relatively mild, however acne in a child – especially girls – can be an indicator of more severe breakouts to come.
Emotionally, acne is awful no matter how old you are. “But it’s a lot harder when you may be the only kid in your class that has it,” Zaenglein says.
“So it’s important to recognize the problem, and don’t ignore the fact that it’s there, because puberty lasts a long time and there’s no reason to think it gets better on its own,” she says.
