Primarily aimed at family practitioners, nurse prescribers, pharmacists and dermatology trainees.

This fully updated edition provides a concise overview of the clinical features of acne, reviews available treatments – including their respective modes of action and potential adverse events – and advises on treatment selection with the implicit goal of minimizing the physical and emotional scarring associated with this challenging disease. It also discusses the use of antibiotics and, given current concerns regarding overprescribing and antibiotic resistance, this highly readable resource is a timely addition to the Fast Facts series.
