Acne affects many of us at some point in our lives, but understanding its basics is key to effective management.

There are two main types: noninflammatory and inflammatory. Noninflammatory acne includes whiteheads and blackheads, while inflammatory acne presents as red, swollen bumps like papules and pustules. Hormonal changes, stress, and genetics can trigger acne.

Remember, treatment options vary from person to person, so consulting a dermatologist is crucial for personalized care.

This Memorial Day, as we honor the brave souls who gave everything for our freedom, it's important to also educate on melanoma risk for veterans. Depending on the environment and role of soldiers, they can be at a higher risk for advanced stage melanoma. This risk is a result of sun exposure, geographical deployments, occupational hazards, lack of sun protection resources, and delayed or limited access to healthcare. If you or a loved one is actively serving in the military or a veteran, we encourage you to keep an eye on skin changes and be seen annually for a skin cancer exam.
