Acne vulgaris is a common skin condition that affects many individuals, especially those going through puberty. More than 96% of teenagers experience some degree of acne. In recent years, several drugs have been marketed as treatment for acne vulgaris. However, some of these drugs have been linked to serious side effects, such as the Drosperinone-containing birth control Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella.
If you or someone you know has suffered from unexpected side effects while taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella for acne vulgaris, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses. Contact the YAZ side effect attorneys of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 to discuss your legal options.
Symptoms of acne vulgaris range in severity from person to person; however, it typically manifests as pimples or blemishes on the face, upper chest, and back. Acne vulgaris generally begins when a person is going through puberty, as certain hormones begin to increase. Typically, the severity of acne will lessen over time, with most people free of symptoms by their early 20s. In some cases, however, acne can continue well into adulthood.
Various dermatological methods have been pursued as treatment for acne vulgaris; however, there is no “cure all” approach. Depending on the severity of acne, and the amount of money you are willing to spend on treatment, various remedies may be pursued. For advice on how to treat acne, ask your general practitioner to refer you to a dermatologist.
