Study links acne with increased risk of depression

Acne Can Increase the Risk for Depression

But the depression symptoms evident in the acne-prone patients only lasted for five years after their initial onset, the study found.

To do so, they assessed data from the Health Improvement Network, the largest electronic medical records database in the world, and they examined information from 1986 to 2012.

The researchers said that the findings highlight an important association between skin disease and mental illness.

Given the results, physicians may need to screen patients with acne for possible symptoms of a mood disorder.

While acne is a beauty problem, a new research has revealed that people with the skin condition are also at a higher risk for depression, especially during the first year after it appears.

Susan Collins, who hosts the meetings, said "there'll probably be more than one [proposal] but it's too early to tell right now". Trump said we wanted a "bill of love". "It's not a situation where we can hold all our members".

Vallerand underscored that, for many people, acne represents more than a skin blemish. "It can have a substantial impact on overall mental health". "Many studies have shown that having acne can lead to depression, anxiety, or both", the AAD said. Risk for major depression within one year of acne diagnosis was found to be 63% higher compared to individuals without acne, according to the study. In other words: Acne doesn't cause depression, but acne and depression might be caused by the same underlying issue.

Do you suffer from acne? "Being social and being able to share anxiety with friends helps". Psoriasis, another skin problem, has always been associated with mental health issues.

People with acne were more likely to be female, younger, nonsmokers and of higher socioeconomic status.

Acne is not the only skin condition linked to increased risk for depression. In one study, researchers found that nearly 20 percent of those with psoriasis suffer from some form of depression.
