4 Types of Acne and How to Treat Them, Part 1

Acne is the most common dermatological condition in the United States, and it can be extremely frustrating to deal with. It’s a problem that many people can’t seem to get rid of, and the problem is not knowing that there are different types of acne – and different ways to treat each type. Once you discover which type of acne you suffer from, you can find a treatment method that will work for you. In this post, we will go over the first two types of acne that you can get, and how to treat them.

Comedonal Acne

Comedonal acne is characterized as tiny bumps all over the skin, usually found in your T-zone. Clogged pores cause this. This type of acne is found in people with a poor skin turnover rate, which can cause oil and wax to become trapped under the skin.

Inflammatory Acne

This type of acne shows up as red bumps, whitehead, and blackheads and tends to be completely random. This type is difficult to deal with because a breakout can show up anywhere for seemingly no reason. Clogged pores and follicles, and excess oil production can cause inflammatory acne.

One of the most important things you can do with any acne is to stick to a consistent skincare routine. Unfortunately, treating acne is a long-term battle, but a consistent routine can help reduce the symptoms and even keep them at bay. Contact our dermatologist today to set up an appointment for your acne treatment, and stay tuned for our next post where we will talk about the other two types of acne and how to treat them.
