Dr. Peredo describes acne.

Dr. Peredo:
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that actually varies. There are different types of acne. So someone can have very mild acne, there is moderate acne, and there is a severe acne, and the treatment would be different for the type of acne that we see presented. And it’s a condition that we call it multifactorial, so there is no one reason for somebody to develop acne. There is definitely some genetic that plays a role but mainly it’s caused by hormonal changes in the body.
