Types of Acne
Acne can manifest as different types of eruptions.
Also called closed comedones, they are non-inflammatory in nature and are caused by excess oil being trapped in the skin pore. They commonly appear on the nose, chin and face.
Inflammatory in nature, unlike papules, pustules are filled with pus. They are raised and generally have white or yellow heads.
Non-inflammatory in nature, they occur when the pore is clogged by a combination of excess oil and dead skin cells. They are also called open comedones.
Unlike, papules and pustules they are deeper underneath the skin and are more likely to scar.
Inflammatory in nature, they occur when the infection causes the pore to expand and results in hard, clogged pores that are sensitive to touch with red or pink surrounding skin.
They are the largest form of Acne and are usually caused due to a severe infection. It is most likely to scar.
Causes and Triggers
The primary cause of Acne is the blockage of skin pores with oil, dead skin or bacteria. These pores (Hair follicles) are attached to tiny oil producing glands (called sebaceous glands) that are responsible for lubricating the hair and skin with sebum and prevent it from drying out.
When these glands produce too much oil (sebum), this excess sebum mixes with dead skin cells and blocks the pore, the ever-present bacteria on the skin contaminates and infects these pores causing zits/pimples/papules, pustules, nodules or cysts.
