How it works

Acne Self-Scale Assessment

By Dr. Sadeq Mohammed Ali, Medicline Dubai

This assessment is designed to provide general guidance, but it should not replace professional medical advice. Always consult with a dermatologist or healthcare provider for personalized acne management.

Instructions: For each question, answer with "Yes" or "No" based on your experiences or symptoms. After the assessment, you will find information about common types of acne and their treatment options.

Do you frequently experience the appearance of pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads on your face or other parts of your body?

Are your acne breakouts often accompanied by redness, swelling, or tenderness around the affected areas?

Do you have large, painful, and deep-seated pimples or cysts that can lead to scarring?

Are your acne symptoms primarily located on your face, chest, or back?

Have you tried over-the-counter (OTC) acne products or home remedies to manage your acne?

Have these OTC or home remedies been effective in controlling your acne breakouts?

Do you experience emotional distress or reduced self-esteem due to your acne condition?

Have you sought professional dermatological advice or treatment for your acne in the past?


Acne management often involves a combination of lifestyle adjustments, skincare routines, and, in some cases, prescription medications. A dermatologist can tailor a plan to your specific needs.

This assessment provides general guidance and should not replace a professional evaluation. If you are concerned about your child’s anxiety or well-being, consult with Dr. Sadeq Mohammed Ali or a mental health professional for tailored advice and assistance.
