Our bodies produce hormones called Androgens that result in the production of oil on the skin. This oil can cause the outbreak of acne. Acne in children and teens can be occasional breakouts to severe cases of pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. Acne in children and teens can cause serious emotional withdraw from friends and school activities, causing children and teenagers to be introverted and shy in social situations. The good news is acne is treatable. Most acne skin conditions can be improved at home by keeping a regular skin care regimen. Additional diagnosis and treatment from a dermatologist may be necessary if regular skin maintenance does not clear up acne.
