Parents, Pay Attention to Your Teen's Acne

Teen acne can tear you down, but medical attention can turn that around. That's the recommendation from the American Counseling Association after a survey of parents.

The survey found more than 2/3 remember feeling self-conscious due to acne when they were teens. But only about 1/3 of those parents have taken their own teens to a dermatologist for their skin trouble.

The counseling group is encouraging parents to watch their children for skin problems and set up an appointment with a dermatologist if acne is persistent. The group says that since teen acne is connected to self-esteem issues and can affect school work and relationships, so that visit could end up improving a lot more than just bumpy skin.
