Guidelines established by the AAD recommend minimizing the duration of systematic antibiotics for the management of acne to an ideal duration of 3-4 months and no longer than 6 months in order to decrease the risk of resistance. Prior reports in the UK and US have documented that oral antibiotics are often prescribed to treat acne for longer durations that recommended by acne guidelines.

Acne affects 85% of individuals and is responsible for a greater global burden of disease than psoriasis and cellulitis. However, our understanding of potential racial/ethnic and sex differences in healthcare utilization and treatment is limited. We evaluated factors associated with healthcare utilization and specific treatments for acne with a goal of identifying disparities in acne care. We performed a cohort study using the OptumInsights Electronic Health Record Database between July 1, 2007 and June 30, 2017 among patients with acne.
