Types of Acne and Your Treatment Options
There are several different types of acne including these:
• Blackheads – A blackhead is a clogged pore that is just below the surface. Because they are open to the environment the oil in the blackhead becomes oxidized which then turns it black.
• Papules – A papule is an inflamed pore that is red in color and becomes inflamed. These can be painful if you touch them; however, there is no pus in a papule.
• Pustules – This type of acne is also an inflamed pore, but it does contain pus which gives it a white head.
• Cysts and Nodules – Both of these types of acne are a little more serious as they are larger and can leave acne scars. With a cyst or nodule, you will notice a large, red bump that doesn’t go away quickly.
