Stressed out by acne?

Early intervention and proper medical treatment is the key to successful management. Talk to your doctor if you think your acne is being caused by a drug prescribed for anxiety, stress or depression. If you are taking one of these prescription drugs, then the acne that you are noticing may be a side-effect. Some of these medicines disrupt the delicate balance in the oil glands and cause pimples to form.

It is important to remember that these medications are often essential for improving your health. The side-effect can be managed successfully, so never try to resolve the acne by stopping treatment and going against your doctor's advice. Talk with your doctor about therapeutic alternatives and tips to help you manage the acne.
