Acne is one of the ten most common diseases worldwide and is the inflammatory skin disease seen most frequently by community physicians and dermatologists. Over the last decade, knowledge of acne pathophysiology and etiologic factors has expanded, resulting in the development of novel treatments that target clinical lesions and improve patient outcomes. However, the vast number of therapeutic options that are now available can pose a challenge to the prescribing clinician selecting the preferred treatment. 'Fast Facts: Acne' is primarily aimed at family practitioners, nurse prescribers, pharmacists and dermatology trainees. This fully updated edition provides a concise overview of the clinical features of acne, reviews available treatments - including their respective modes of action and potential adverse events - and advises on treatment selection with the implicit goal of minimizing the physical and emotional scarring associated with this challenging disease. It also discusses the use of antibiotics and, given current concerns regarding overprescribing and antibiotic resistance, this highly readable resource is a timely addition to the Fast Facts series. Contents: * Epidemiology * Pathophysiology, etiology and modifying factors * Diagnosis * Psychosocial aspects * Topical therapy * Oral Therapy * Physical treatments for acne and scarring * Acne care pathway * Future trends and areas of need * Acknowledgements and useful resources
