Hi. Has this been diagnosed as Acne Vulgaris? It would be unusual for a 60 year old to have acne vulgaris, although acne rosacea is more common in older adults.
If the patient is female is her menopause complete? Hormone replacement therapy may help as acne vulgaris can be a result of low oestrogen/high androgen levels. Some medicines such as steroids can induce acne. Are any medicines currently prescribed?
Both acne vulgaris and acne rosacea can be helped by a course of oral antibiotics such as Oxytetracycline 250mg twice daily.
Eloise.
