What are the common symptoms of acne? 

Acne can lead to:
 
  • Low self-esteem: Feeling embarrassed about your acne can lower your self-confidence. You may be too embarrassed to be with friends and even miss out on school and/or work. 
  • Depression: Severe acne is most likely to lead to depression. Many studies have found that teens who believe that they have “bad” acne were likely to think about committing suicide. 
  • Dark spots on the skin: These spots appear when the acne heals. It can take months or years for dark spots to disappear.
  • Scars (permanent): People who get acne cysts and nodules often see scars when the acne clears. Treating acne before cysts and nodules appear can prevent scars.
