Abstract
Despite the fact that acne is among the most common conditions treated by dermatologists, challenges in managing acne patients are encountered on a daily basis. The articles in this supplement help to address some of those challenges, namely choice of appropriate topical formulations, management of acne in patients with skin of color and appropriate use of oral antibiotics in an age of emerging antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
