Types of Acne & Acne scar types

Commonly recognized types of acne:

Acne Rosacea: This occurs in women over 30 years of age. It appears as a bumpy, red rash on the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin.

Acne Conglobata: This is the most severe form of Acne which occurs in numerous large lesions more common in males between the age of 18 and 30 years. It can cause severe damage to the skin and is seen on the face, chest, back, buttocks, upper arms and thighs.

Acne Fulminans: This is an ulcerating form of Acne affecting young men. It can cause awful scarring, with fever and joint aches.

Gram-Negative Folliculitis: This kind of Acne is in the form of pustules and cysts caused by a bacterial infection. It can possibly occur as a complication resulting from long term antibiotic treatment of Acne Vulgaris.

Pyoderma Faciale: This is an extremely severe type of facial Acne with large nodules, pustules and sores leaving scars affecting only females between the ages of 20 and 40 years.Acne scar types

Depressed scars are the most common type of scar that results from inflammatory acne.  Within this class of scars there are three main types that are common in acne sufferers:
 
Rolling scars – relatively broad depressions in the skin that have rounded, sloping edges.  The combination of several of these types of scars in a region of skin gives it a rolling appearance, hence the name.
 
Boxcar scars – also relatively broad depressions, but have steep, defined edges.
 
Icepick scars – as the name implies, are deep and narrow scars.  In many cases, they resemble a large, empty pore in the skin.  In general, all the depression scars rest on top of a patch of fibrous, collagen rich scar tissue.  This fibrous tissue anchors the base (bottom) of the scar to the sub-cutaneous tissue, maintaining the depression and preventing the regrowth of healthy tissue.
 
Effective treatments for depressed acne scars usually involve disrupting or removing this scar tissue to allow its replacement with functional, healthy tissue

Symptoms of Acne

Type of acne Whiteheads: These appear when a pore is entirely blocked, trapping oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells causing a white appearance on the surface.

Blackheads: These materialize when a pore is only partially blocked, allowing the trapped oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells to slowly drain to the surface. The black color is not caused by dirt, but it a reaction of the skin’s own pigment, melanin reacting with the oxygen in the air.

Papules: These are small, inflamed, red, tender bumps with no head and are tender to touch.Pustules: This is similar to a whitehead, but is red-looking with white or yellow pus in the center.

Nodules: This is a severe kind of Acne, in which the lesions are much larger, more painful, lodged deep within the skin and sometimes lasts for months, leaving scars.

Cysts: This is also a severe kind of Acne and appears similar to a nodule, but larger than a pustule; the lesions are  deep, pus filled, very painful and leave scars.
