Acne is most commonly found on your face, forehead, chest, shoulders, and upper back. Oil glands can be found all over your body, but these are the ones with the most. The best technique to treat acne is determined by its severity. Acne can be modest (a few pimples here and there), moderate (inflammatory papules), or severe (nodules and cysts).
Blackheads: are open lumps on the skin that fill with excess oil and dead skin. The black patches appear to be dirt deposited in the bump, but they are actually created by an uneven light reflection off the obstructed follicle.
Whiteheads: are bumps that are sealed shut by oil and dead skin.
Papules: small red or pink pimples.
Pustules are pus-filled pimples. They have the appearance of whiteheads surrounded by red rings. If picked or scraped, they can leave scars.
Pityrosporum folliculitis (fungal acne): This type occurs when an overabundance of yeast develops in the hair follicles. They may become irritated and inflamed.
Nodules: Large, solid, painful lumps under the skin
Cysts: Painful, pus-filled lumps under the skin
During a skin examination, your clinician can diagnose acne. They may also inquire as to whether you are under a lot of stress or if you have a family history of acne, both of which are risk factors. Teenage girls and women may also be asked about their menstrual cycles, as acne and menstrual cycles are occasionally linked. In elderly people, sudden, severe acne outbreaks can sometimes be a sign of some underlying ailment that necessitates medical care.
