The etiology of acne in children remains incompletely elucidated, with various factors implicated. Hormonal fluctuations occurring during puberty, pregnancy, and the menstrual cycle are associated with acne development. Elevated levels of androgens, male sex hormones, during puberty instigate increased sebum production and enhanced shedding of dead skin cells in both genders. Additionally, occlusion of pores can result from the application of makeup or cosmetics, as well as certain skincare products. Friction or irritation from clothing and environmental factors such as humidity and sweating may exacerbate acne symptoms. Furthermore, certain medications, including corticosteroids, have been linked to acne onset. Adolescence represents the primary risk period for acne, while a familial predisposition increases susceptibility to severe forms of the condition.
