Abstract

IntroductionAcne vulgaris is common among young people and can have psychosocial repercussions. Effective treatments are available, but there is evidence that many young people have limited knowledge about acne, and many do not seek medical help for the condition. A survey of people aged 12–25 years in France found that 81% considered acne to be an unavoidable part of adolescence, and 39% had not consulted a doctor, although 71% thought that acne should be treated.Gaining a better understanding of adolescents’ and young adults’ views and actions concerning acne could help optimize management strategies. In particular, it would be helpful to understand where young people obtain information about acne from, how many do/do not choose to seek medical help for their acne, and what prescribed or non‐prescribed treatments they use.As part of a population‐based survey study performed to determine the prevalence of self‐reported acne in young people in Europe and identify associated lifestyle factors, the burden and management of acne were evaluated from the patients’ perspective. This short report describes the findings related to the latter objective.MethodsMethodological details for the cross‐sectional online survey, which enrolled a representative sample of individuals aged 15–24 years from Belgium, Czech and Slovak Republics, France, Italy, Poland
