Dr. Peredo describes acne.
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.
