Types Of Acne - What are They?

  1. 1. Different types of acne exist. Some of them are very mild while some of them may take weeks to heal and that too with the most stringent methods employed. Here are some descriptions of common types of acne. Whiteheads – Small white bumps that come up on various regions of the skin, especially the face, are called as whiteheads. These are actually clogged follicles that have not been able to wend their way through the surface of the skin. They are the least dangerous of all forms of acne. Blackheads – Blackheads happen when the follicles that trap the material causing acne can push through the skin and break out on the outside. Here, they undergo chemical reactions with the outer environment because of the presence of the pigment melanin in them. This is what makes them take up a black color. Blackheads can grow to larger sizes. Papules – Papules are a form of inflammatory acne. They show up as small pink bumps on the skin, usually soft to touch. They can aggravate to more serious forms. Pustules – Pustules are distinctly visible as red and white eruptions on the skin, where the red forms the circumference of the eruption and the white forms the middle. The pustule is

The pus is actually formed in response to the body's defense mechanism as the comedo bursts inside the skin. These nodules are among the most difficult-to-treat types of acne. They take a long time to heal too and require a lot of care and attention. If not taken care of, they will leave scars when they heal. Acne conglobata – This type of acne, which is caused due to a bacterial infection, is one of the most less-encountered types of acne. It occurs mainly on the buttocks, back and the chest, but rarely on the face. http://youracneinformation.info/
