Acne is an extremely common reason people visit their dermatologists, and unfortunately, there are many myths about this skin condition that can interfere with people’s acne treatment. Remember to only take advice about acne from your dermatologist rather than anecdotal facts from friends or from social media.

Watch this video to debunk this common acne myth—that where you break out says something about your overall health. Although your dermatologist may suspect certain triggers for acne based on where your breakouts are located, it doesn’t give any special clues about your systemic well-being.

To get the real facts about acne, make an appointment with a dermatologist in Arlington Heights at Arlington Dermatology. You can schedule your visit today by calling 847-392-5440.
