What Are The Different Types Of Acne?

In order to start treating acne it is vital to know which form of acne you have.  The different types of acne can be identified by their appearance.  Once you know which form of acne you have you will be able to understand and treat it respectively.

The most common form of acne is Acne Vulgaris. Usually found on oily skin types the acne can develop into three different forms; Inflammatory Lesions, Non Inflammatory Lesions and Secondary Lesions.

Another form of acne is Comendonal Acne.  This form of acne appears without becoming inflamed.  It can be caused by Hormonal fluctuations.  Some soaps and facial products that are highly perfumed can irritate and worsen this form of acne.  So it is best to use warm water and use products that are designed for sensitive skin.

Acne Conglobata is mostly found amongst males.  This is a very common form of acne that appears on a man’s chest and back.

Acne also can develop in babies.  Known as infantile acne it usually appears as small white spots on the baby’s cheeks and forehead (sometimes called milk spots).  This form of acne usually disappears within a few months and is just the remains of the mother’s hormones in the baby’s bloodstream.

Mediamentosa Acne is a form of acne that is due to reactions of certain medications.  Anabolic Steroids and Oral contraception can cause Mediamentosa.

Acne Exori appears if you continually pick white heads and black heads.  By picking and squeezing acne you can create acne Exori.  The longer term effects of squeezing your pimples are permanent scarring and marking on your skin.

The most unsightly form of acne is Cystic Acne.  This is the most severe form of acne. Small puss filled craters appear on the skin; these cysts are caused by severe inflammation and infection and can be very painful.  If left untreated cystic acne can damage the surrounding skin tissues.  Cystic acne unfortunately also can lead to scarring.

So before deciding which treatment to use make sure you know which form of acne you have.  A dermatologist can help you in this area if you are still unsure.  They can also let you know which treatment will be best for your skin type and give you crucial information on how best to treat your acne.
