Acne vulgaris is a common inflammatory skin condition affecting most individuals at some point during their lives. Although acne is more commonly seen in adolescents, it can be seen in younger patients as well. It can be useful to classify pediatric acne based on the age of presentation as infantile, mid‐childhood, or preadolescent. We describe a practical approach to the evaluation and treatment of acne in each of these age groups. 

Pediatric Acne

The pediatric acne is classified according to the age groups as neo natal acne, infantile acne, mid-childhood acne, and prepubertal acne, which varies in each age group.

Acne and Its Variants in Special Populations

It is important for medical practitioners to familiarize themselves with these differing presentations and sequelae in specific populations to provide adequate evaluations and treatment regimens.

Therapeutic Approaches of Infantile Acne: A Narrative Review Study

The treatment strategy for infantile acne is similar to acne treatment at any age, and treatment is based on the severity of the acne and the risk of a future scar.

Lipidomics reveals the role of glycoceramide and phosphatidylethanolamine in infantile acne

The etiology of infantile acne is different from that of puberty acne, and the change of skin surface lipid (SSL) is an important factor in the occurrence of acne.

Prediction of neonatal acne based on maternal lipidomic profiling

Maternal surface skin lipids (SSL) have a strong correlation with SSL of infants and the establishment of prediction rank model based on maternal SSL is essential to the prevention and treatment of neonatal acne.

Complex correction of psychoemotional and immunological changes in patients with acne

Effectiveness therapy with phabomotizol was shown and presence of immunotropic properties of IL was established, and possibility of achieving long-term remission without the use of antibiotic therapy was demonstrated.

Prevalence of Acne among Preadolescent School Students in Damietta Governorate

Acne is one amongst the most common skin disease and includes a great effect on quality of life among pre adolescents attending primary and preparatory schools in Damietta governorate Egypt, where the prevalence of acne vulgaris was 23.5%.

Neonatal acne based on maternal lipidomic profiling prediction

Facial lipids of the volunteers were analyzed and found that most of the causes are related to changes in lipid composition in skin surface.



Pathogenesis and Treatment of Acne in Childhood

There are many other types of acne in childhood reflecting different pathogenetic mechanisms; included in this group are acne venenata infantum, steroid acne, hormonal disturbances, and toxic reactions.

Incidence of acne vulgaris in patients with infantile acne

There appears to be a trend towards higher incidence and greater severity of acne vulgaris in teenage years in patients with a history of infantile acne compared to their peers.

Epidemiology of Acne

According to different studies of the literature performed in different countries in the world, the mean onset of acne is 11 years in girls and 12 years in boys, remaining earlier in girls (1 or 2 years) with mainly retentional lesions (open and closed comedones).
