TEENAGE ACNE AND MENTAL HEALTH

The psychological and social impacts of acne are a huge concern, especially because acne affects adolescents at a crucial period when they are developing their personalities. During this time, peer acceptance... is very important to the teenager and unfortunately it has been found that there are strong links between physical appearance and attractiveness and peer status.
In recent years, open discussions between patients and medical professionals have revealed the impact acne has on the psyche. The following are some of the problems that patients with acne may face.
Self esteem and body image
  • Some embarrassed acne patients avoid eye contact.
  • Some acne sufferers grow their hair long to cover the face.
  • Girls tend to wear heavy make-up to disguise the pimples, even though they know that this sometimes aggravates their acne.
  • Boys often comment: "Acne is not such a problem for girls because they can wear make-up". Body acne can reduce participation in sport because of the need to disrobe (swimming) or wear clothing that reveal their acne.

Social withdrawal/relationship building

  • Acne, especially when it affects the face, provokes cruel taunts from other teenagers ie BULLYING
  • Some find it hard to form new relationships, especially with the opposite sex. At a time when teenagers are learning to form relationships, those with acne may lack the self confidence to go out and make these bonds. They become shy and even reclusive.
  • The main concern is a fear of negative appraisal by others. In extreme cases a social phobia can develop.¬†

Education/work 

  • Some children with acne refuse to go school, leading to poor academic performance.
  • Some people with acne take sick days from work, risking their jobs or livelihood.
  • Acne may reduce career choices, ruling out occupations where appearance is essential.
  • Acne patients are less successful in job applications; their lack of confidence being as important as the potential employers' reaction to their spotty skin. More people who have acne are unemployed than people who do not have acne.
  • Many young adults with acne seek medical help as they enter the workforce, where they perceive that acne is unacceptable and that they "should have grown out of it by now".
