Although all the buttons start the same way, they can take many forms and react differently to different people. It starts with a basic acne. The enlargement of the hair follicle associated with excess sebum and bacteria. Invisible to the naked eye, acne lies beneath the surface of your skin while waiting for the conditions to be met to become inflamed.
It is best to consult a dermatologist if your acne persists. These definitions can be used to help you decide whether you should consider seeking medical care.
– Non-inflammatory acne
If the follicle remains beneath the surface of the skin, the lesion is closed. The buttons appear on the skin then usually as small, whitish bumps.
If it develops and grows across the surface of the skin, it is called a blackhead. The dark appearance is not due to dirt, but rather an accumulation of melanin, the dark pigment of the skin.
– Inflammatory acne
The mildest form of inflammatory acne is the papule, which appears on the skin as a small firm lump rose. These can be sensitive to touch, and are often considered an intermediary step between non-inflammatory and inflammatory lesions.
– The pustules.
Like papules, pustules are small round lesions, unlike papules, they are clearly visible and may contain pus. They are red at the base with a yellowish or whitish center. E pustules contain many bacteria, inflammation is usually caused by chemical irritation from sebum such as free fatty acids.
– Acne conglobata.
This rare but serious form of inflammatory acne develops primarily on the back, buttocks and chest. In addition to the presence of pustules and nodules, there may be severe bacterial infections.
