Acne is the most common chronic skin condition of adolescents, affecting up to 95% of boys and 85% of teenage girls. It tends to begin at puberty, and while for most people it tends to go away by the time they reach their mid-20s, some people may continue to have the disorder until they reach their 40s or 50s.
