Acne is a very common problem in the Australian community, managed by GPs at a rate of 0.4 per 100 encounters. It can affect adults and children as well as adolescents, and has the potential for serious psychological sequalae. While many patients effectively treat their acne with OTC products, GPs play an important role in managing more severe and/or resistant disease. Like many dermatological conditions, GP registrars are likely to have had limited prior experience in managing acne, and need guidance to appropriately assess and manage such patients
