The pathophysiology of acne vulgaris in children and adolescents, part 2: Tailoring treatment



Cutis 74(3): 189-192

These factors include follicular hyperkeratosis, increased colonization of follicles by Propionibacterium acnes, increased sebum production, and inflammatory mediators. Optimal treatment of acne involves the use of agents that address these various underlying pathogenetic factors.
