Acne vulgaris is a common skin disease affecting approximately 9.4% of the world's population. The present study was conducted to evaluate the cases of Acne vulgaris in patients.
Materials & Methods:
The present study was conducted on 125 patients of both genders. In all patients, duration of acne, type of skin (dry/normal/oily), site of lesion (face, chest, or back), grade of acne, postacne hyperpigmentation (present/absent) and acne scars were recorded.
Results: Out of 125 participants, males were 55 and females were 70. Common site was face & chest in 50, back in 35, face in 20 and chest & back in 20 cases. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Grade I was seen in 15, grade II in 50, grade III in 40 and grade IV in 20 patients. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Acne grading was mild in 60, moderate in 45 and severe in 20. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Acne vulgaris is quite common in females as compared to males. Common site was face & chest.
