Background. Acne vulgaris causes profound negative physical, psychological and social effects on self-image and a negative impact on the quality of life. Most research so far has been limited to adults, and little is known about the emotion regulation, medication adherence, clinical dimensions and psychopathology symptoms in young people with acne vulgaris.
