What are the different types of acne?

Knowing the type of acne you have is crucial for effective treatment, scar prevention, avoiding irritation, managing underlying conditions, and monitoring progress. Different types of acne require specific treatments, and using the wrong treatment can worsen the condition. Understanding your acne helps tailor a personalized treatment plan for clearer skin and better outcomes.

The different types of acne include:

Fungal Acne: Fungal acne happens when yeast grows too much in your hair follicles, leading to itchy and inflamed bumps.

Cystic Acne: Cystic acne creates deep, pus-filled pimples and lumps under your skin, which can leave scars.

Hormonal Acne: Hormonal acne mainly affects adults and occurs when your body makes too much oil, leading to clogged pores.

Nodular Acne: Nodular acne is a severe type of acne that causes big pimples on your skin's surface and painful lumps deep under your skin.
