Solving Adult Acne Mystery

Wednesday, 19 September 2012 10:18 AM

Question: I am a 67 year old man and I have had a sudden outbreak of acne, almost like when I was a teenager. Could this indicate a health problem?

Dr. Cwynar's answer:
Acne in an adult can be the result of hormonal changes that may or may not be normal. Adult acne can also signal nutritional deficiencies. See an endocrinologist. Most dermatologists can give you treatments to clear up your skin but they may not necessarily diagnose the underlying problem, if you have one. Ask the doctor to run an intracellular vitamin analysis. Spectracell Labs are just one of many labs that can do this test, which can determine if you have a nutritional deficiency.
