Acne (young people)


In this section you can find out about young people’s experience of having acne by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film.

Researchers talked to 25 young people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as symptoms, treatments, and impact on school, university and social life.

We interviewed young people with a range of experiences, including those who had successful treatment for their acne, those who were undergoing current treatments at the time of the interview and those who had chosen not to have medical treatments. Not everyone interviewed had acne on their faces as the condition can affect other parts of the body, such as the back and chest.

The people we talked to were given the choice about the format their interview appears on the website. Some people chose for their interview clips to be featured as audio or text only, rather than video.

We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
