It is one of the most common skin condition and has an enormous physical and psychological impact if left untreated. • The classification of acne is based on types of lesions present and can be divided into mild. moderate and severe. • Acne management should involve consideration of disease pathogenesis and comorbidities in each patient. • Avoidance of scarring is fundamental in the management of acne. • Good rapport and patient education are vital for compliance with therapy and for long-term improvement.
