Understanding how to treat acne requires you to know what type of acne you may have. Acne has several variations, going from severity from mild to much more serious cases which can cause physical disfigurement. There are various treatments for acne available on the market today, but it is extraordinarily important to first identify your acne type before you get treatment.

 

Acne Vulgaris 

The most common type of acne is called Acne Vulgaris.  This form of acne can be easily recognized by looking at the characteristics of the lesions. 

Whiteheads: When a pore becomes entirely blocked by trapping sebum, dead skin cells, and bacteria, you will see a white appearance on the surface of the skin.  You should stay away from popping these pimples. 

Blackheads: When the pore is only partly blocked, the trapped sebum, dead skin and bacteria will have gradually drained to the surface of the skin.  The black color originates from the skin’s pigment and melanin reacting with oxygen.  Blackheads will typically take longer to fade away than whiteheads.  You should also resist the temptation to pop these pimples.  

Pustules: You can spot a pustule by a red circle with a white or yellow center.  The pustule looks a lot like a whitehead with the difference being inflammation.  Pustules are commonly known as Zits. 

Papules: The papule consists of a red, inflamed and tender bump on your skin with no noticeable head.  It would be better if you don’t attempt to squeeze this lesion because you could cause or exacerbate scarring. 

Severe Acne Vulgaris: The severe types of Acne Vulgaris include Nodules and Cysts and can be very painful.  If you have these, you should consult your dermatologist for treating these types of acne.  

 

Acne Rosacea 

Acne Rosacea sometimes looks very similar to Acne Vulgaris and it often creates confusion.  There are millions of people affected by Acne Rosacea and it typically strikes individuals over the age of thirty.  It will start by appearing as a reddish rash on the cheeks, forehead, nose and/or chin.  You may also observe small bumps, skin blemishes or pimples in the area.  It is better if you consult with your dermatologist if you suspect you have Rosacea for the reason that treatment is often very different. 

There are other very serious kinds of acne, like Acne Conglobata, Gram-Negative Folliculitis, Acne Fulminans and Pyoderma Faciale.  These kinds of acne are very uncommon, but they can be disfiguring, painful and even lead to severe psychological effects. 

It is always recommended that you consult with your doctor to confirm the form of acne you have and the best acne treatments available for you. The above information should be used only as a reference, and only a trained dermatologist can accurately diagnose your type of acne.
