Re: Non organic form of Acne

Thank you very much for your question. I'm very sorry indeed to hear about your problem. Acne can be extremely distressing and hugely affect confidence. Dermatologists recognise this. Nevertheless it is usually highly treatable and it does sound as if you should see a dermatologist if you have not already. I don't recognise the term 'non-organic acne' I'm afraid. All forms of acne are usually treatable. Some people with very minimal visible acne (occasional spots only or even just increased oil) may still be hugely affected psychologically and a good dermatologist will recognise this and treat it properly and with strong therapy to bring it under control. Psychological support with cognitive behavioural therapy may also help some people.

Best wishes
