When Acne Is Not Acne

You might think it is obvious if someone has acne but this is not always the case.

Occasionally I have men and women arrive to tell me about their acne concerns but they don't have acne at all. It often takes some convincing for them to believe the breakouts they have on their skin are indeed not acne.

The four most common conditions I see that can look acne-like are eczema, rosacea, perioral dermatitis and occasionally a fungal infection. So if you are experiencing acne-like breakouts that are not responding to treatment, it might be worth getting another opinion. Appointments with our dermal therapist for assessment are available Tuesday - Saturday.
