A survey by the British Skin Foundation showed that nearly 1 in 3 acne sufferers were left dissatisfied after treatment.
The survey asked over 2,000 people about their experiences with acne and focused on the emotional aspect as well as physical symptoms.
Emotional Impact of Acne
The survey generated some surprising and saddening results about the hurt that acne can cause, as 56.78% of acne sufferers said they’d experienced verbal abuse from friends, family and other people they knew, due to their condition. Nearly 40% of acne sufferers have been verbally abused by another member of the public
Unsatisfactory Acne Treatment
The fact that 1 in 3 sufferers had not had satisfactory treatment from a medical professional is a challenge or opportunity to help more people to.
Dr Anjali Mahto, spokesperson for the British Skin Foundation, said:
“I’m not surprised to hear that acne can have such a profound effect on every aspect of someone’s life.
“What is really sad about it, is that acne, for the majority of people is a treatable skin disorder, and having suffered with it myself, I really do feel that no one should just have to live with it.
“A good dermatologist can offer a large number of potential treatments that can be tailored to the individual.
“Unfortunately, the skin is such a visible organ, that it’s only natural that self-esteem is so closely tied to it.”
