Acne is the most common skin condition observed in adolescent and preadoles-cent patients. Pediatric providers are on the forefront of managing the disease, often as a secondary concern in a busy practice.

This article provides treatment rationale and guidelines-based recommendations for the initial treatment of acne, tips for troubleshooting any side effects, and a plan for subsequent follow-up to maintain good control.
