Tips for parents
Do you have a teenager with acne? If you’re like many parents, you want to help, but may not know where to start. Here are a few suggestions that you may find useful.
Do your homework
Acne is a legitimate skin condition, and there are effective treatment options available to help manage your teen's acne. Learn all you can about acne and how to treat it. The more you know, the more prepared you are to help your teen develop—and stick to—a healthy skin-care routine.
Start the conversation
Some teens don’t feel comfortable talking to their parents, especially about something they’re self-conscious about like acne. So don’t wait for your teen to come to you. Start the conversation. Odds are that your teen will be glad you brought it up.
Suggest talking with a doctor
Don’t take a wait-and-see approach with your teen’s acne. Offer to make an appointment with a dermatologist. Download this Doctor Discussion Guide to prepare for your visit. In addition to examples of questions that may help you start the conversation, this guide also includes space to record other topics you want to discuss.
Give your teen a voice
Step back and let your teen take the lead in talking with the doctor, and give him or her a choice in whatever decisions are made. The more involved your teen is in choosing a treatment plan, the more likely he or she will follow it.
