What are the different types of acne?

If you have acne, you might notice a mix of pimple types.

Whiteheads and blackheads, both also referred to as comedones, are the most common acne lesions.

Blackheads, or open comedones, open at the surface of your skin. Oxygen in the air (not dirt) gives the top of these pimples their darker appearance.
Whiteheads, or closed comedones, form as raised bumps under the surface of your skin. They remain flesh-colored.
Inflammatory lesions, which are more likely to cause scarring of your skin, include:

Papules-These small, red, raised bumps are caused by inflamed or infected hair follicles.
Pustules- These small red pimples have pus at their tips.
Nodules- These solid, often painful lumps develop beneath the surface of your skin.
Cysts- These large lumps beneath your skin contain pus and are usually painful.

What are the symptoms of acne?

Acne can be found almost anywhere on your body, but you’ll most commonly notice breakouts on your:

  • face and neck
  • back
  • shoulders
  • chest

Pimples can give your skin a rough, uneven texture.

With acne, you might also experience:

  • skin discoloration, including dark patches or spots  and redness
  • swelling and inflammation
  • pain and tenderness when touched or not

Acne breakouts can also cause scared or discoloration on your skin.

Popping pimples can raise your chances of scarring, so avoid squeezing — no matter how tempting it feels to get rid of the pimple immediately —
