Why do some kids get more acne than others ?
Various factors play an important role in exaggerating acne. Some of them are- hereditary factors, hormonal imbalance, stress, smoking and rarely dietary factors. When the patient’s parents had pimples in their youth then there is a high chance that their kids also suffer from the same problem. Young girls with hormonal imbalance like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) also get severe acne. Stress of studies and peer pressure of collegues can lead to more acne. Diet containing junk, oily food and milk- milk products can lead to increased acne.
