8 Diseases That Affect Men and Women Differently

Women experience more acne during their periods and menopause, as their hormone levels are disrupted. Both sexes can have acne from childhood into adulthood, but in men it generally lasts longer as they produce more sebum, which is the oily substance responsible for acne.

3. Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is 2 to 3 times more common in women than in men. However, it is often more severe in men than in women. When it comes to its progressive form, known as primary-progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS), it appears that the number of men may be higher than women.
