Sample Report: Acne
Acne (acne vulgaris) is the most common in teenagers and young adults. It may occur in adult women and men signaling hormonal imbalances. There are up to 3 million cases a year in the US.
Of those affected, moderate to severe problems occur in 20%. Acne happens when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. Symptoms range from un-inflamed blackheads to pus-filled pimples or large, red, and tender bumps.
