Another unintended consequence of acne blogs is that it may give you an excuse to delay definitive treatment of your condition. For people with progressive acne, and especially those with cystic acne, the possibility exists that they will have significant increase scarring the longer they hold off getting their condition under control.
It's important to prevent deep of scarring, by making sure that you have more severe acne treated promptly if it is severe and you are not making progress with the suggestions that you find in the blogs and online.
