Dear student,

Acne is said be acute if it gets cured quickly. But in certain individuls acne proves to be chronic since it remains for a long time. Acne can be a devastating disease for the patient, since it manifests on visible body parts and in children near puberty, who are vulnerable both socially and psychologically. Most typically, acne is a condition that continuously changes in its distribution and severity. Usually, acne treatment is necessary for many months and sometimes years. Despite treatment, acne may cause scarring and associated negative psychological effects.
