A Study on Pimple Breakout and Influencing Factors in Middle School Students
Myung-Soon Na, Eun-Hwa Ju, Mi-Hey Kim
A questionnaire survey was conducted with 245 middle school girls and boys to grasp pimple prevalence and examine influencing factors on pimple breakout. The difference between pimple group and normal group was analyzed in life habits and environmental factors such as dietary habits and health condition. The pimple group was divided into two subgroups such as early pimple group and late pimple group and their characteristics were compared and analyzed. Finally the following results were obtained. 1. The number of pimple prevalent group was 125(51%) with 58 boys(50.4%) and 67 girls(51.5%), suggesting no statistical significance. The pimple group was subdivided into two groups according to the period of first pimple break out: the early pimple group whose pimples were broken out before 16 year sold and the late pimple group whose pimples were broken out after 16 years old. The early pimple group was 80% and the late pimple group was 20%. 2.Family history did not show a significant difference in the Chi-square analysis but showed a significant difference in the binary logistic regression(p<0.001). 3. To compare and analyze influencing factors on pimple break out and related factors, dietary habits, exposure to UV, stress, digestion, and evacuation were examined using Chi-square test. In the dietary habits, there was no a significant difference in meal regularity and preference for sweet food. On the other hand, preference for spicy food(p<0.01) and preference for instant food(p<0.05) showed a significant difference between pimple group and normal group. While 52.8% of the pimple group showed the strongest preference for spicy food, 46.7% of the normal group showed neutral preference for spicy food. Strong preference for instant food was found in 25.6% of the pimple group and 10.8% of the normal group. 4. Family history, spicy food, instant food, exposure hours to UV, stress, an evacuation function, and a digestion function were analyzed using the binary logistic regression. As a result, there was a significant difference in family history(p<0.001). The probability of pimple break out of students with family history was 6.16 times higher than those without family history.
