Teen Acne And Suicidal Ideation, Linked?

By November 7, 2012

Follow me on:

I was updating some articles today when I came upon an article on this study on teen acne and suicidal ideation reported by US news. The survey analyzed 3775 Norwegian teens ages 18 to 19 years old, all with different severities of acne.Those with severe acne problems thought about suicide more often than those teens with less acne. I've said more than once that teens who suffer severe acne need the help of their parents to find a way to get it under control. While there is no cure for teen acne, there are treatments that will help teens control it.
