Types of Acne and How to Treat Them!

- Nodules – a large, hard, and painful lump on the skin which is caused by infection.
- Cystic acne – it looks like nodules but would become severe since there are cysts (trapped ball of fat and connective tissue under the skin).
Once cystic appeared, it would stay there for a long period of time (hard to fade on its own).
Treatment may include draining the fluid to reduce the size (this is done by dermatologist, don’t do this on your own). The procedure creates a small cut on the skin, allowing the fluid to be drained when the cyst is squeezed.
Another treatment option could be extraction. It removes the cyst through surgical procedure.
