Have you or someone you know ever suffered from skin problems such as acne, pimples, blackhead or whiteheads, especially on the face? 

 

Did you know that people who suffer from skin problems suffer greater stigma and discrimination? Certain conditions such as acne have been related to higher levels of embarrassment, poor body image, depression, bullying, social exclusion and even suicide. 

 

Worry not, my housemate Dr. Pamela Njuguna (Dermatologist in training) has written this blog post for you.

I feel for the teens who goes through this challenge. It's more difficult for them to brush it aside and ignore the stares. Thanks for sharing
