I am running into the problem of acne with my two adolescent children.; I remember the nightmare it was to me and. I hope . t h e r e are new cures with all t h e recent advances in medicine. Mrs. L.D., Jr., Calif. Dear Mrs. D.: Acne is probably one of the most complicated problems for adolescents. The intertwining of the physical and emotional aspects of acne demand, therefore, the arduous treatment; coupled with the most sensitive understanding. .. There was a time when poor hygiene, and ; consequently In- 'were considered the cause of acne. Sweets, too, were incriminated.

RIVCKBOfOS LESTER L COLEMAN, M-D. Hormones Affect Acne Conditions of infection the sebaceous glands which lie underneath the skin. These glands 'normally produce., an secretion-- which serves to lubricate the skin. More and more attention is being devoted to the hormone imbalance that occurs in jubevty, in both boys and girls This imbalance is thought to be of the 'most importani causes for persistent'acne, Treatment is devoted to the infections that occur secondarily on the skin. . Antibiotics by mouth, a n d applied locally, are effective. Hormones, judiciously used especially in girls, aid the control of difficult cases o acne. Scrupulous cleanliness, course, is extremely important. Attempts to extrude blackheads and tiny cysts by pressure or scratching may result in further infection and eventual scarring of the skin. Too vigorous scrubbing of the skin, contrary o most attitudes, is harsh and can damage the outer layers of the skin. AVOID SWEETS Some foods undoubtedly must e avoided. Nuts, chocolate, gravies and rich desserts have aeen implicated as possible causes. It is not unusual for girls to "break out" just before the time of the menstrual period. Dermatologists have many excellent combined forms of treatment for the various grades of acne. Psychological support by the parents is most important. One must respect the teenager's intense concern about this condition which can be so socially embarrassing. ; Many- children are tempted by attractive "mail order" advertisements that promise rapid c u r e s . This should be discouraged because some of the harsh medicines may result in further scarring of the skin. Some of these "guaranteed" home remedies can actually be hazardous.
