The study was undertaken to compare the pre-menstrual and post-menstrual profile of women with adolescent acne. The non-inflammatory and inflammatory acne lesions in thirty two women patients with adolescent acne were counted at weekly intervals over a total of 96 menstrual periods. The mean of the acne lesions in the pre-menstrual phase was compared with that in the post-menstrual phase. In 67.71% of the periods observed, there was a decrease in the noninflammatory acne lesions. There was a mean reduction in the non-inflammatory and inflammatory lesions count of 2.304.89 and 3.692.92 respectively and this reduction was statistically highly significant (p<0.0001). These findings corroborate the general notice that there is an improvement of acne in the post-menstrual phase.
