Get Rid Acne TypesWhat do you feel when red spots appear on the face? When it is small, maybe it is not that disturbing, but it is different if the acne is getting bigger and inflamed. Before you treat the canes, you should first identify the types of acne as the following:

Typical acnes (common acnes)

The look is easily to spot as the tiny bumps of pink or redness. The common causes are stress, hormones and the humid air that triggers the skin to produce oils which becomes the breeding grounds for bacteria. As a result, the skin pores are clogged due to infection caused by bacteria.

Prevention and Treatment

Use a facial soap that contains benzoyl-peroxide, or sulfur soap to kill the bacteria that cause the acnes.

  • If the acne treatment available at the stores does not work, see a dermatologist to get it checked and get a prescription for acne medication containing vitamin A derivatives like Retin-A.
  • To reduce inflammation and kill the bacteria, use acne medications containing benzoyl-peroxide.
  • You may also try antibiotic ointment containing medications such as Garamicyn (can be purchased free). This ointment could kill bacteria and reduce inflammation and as well the swelling.

Cystic Acnes (Stone Pimples / Corn Acnes)

It shapes sort of big with great inflamed bumps, gathered in almost all areas of the face (different from ordinary acne that is found only in one part of the face). Acne often makes the sufferers to lose their confidence. It is sometimes caused by genetics reasons, such as:

  • The over-active oil glands that ‘floods’ the pores with oil.
  • The growth of skin cells that is abnormal that it can’t regenerate as fast as normal skin.
  • To have an excessive response towards inflammation that it leaves a mark on the skin.

Prevention and Treatment

  • It’s useless to use drugs sold freely at the stores because those medication will not be able to treat this type of acne. You must consult a dermatologist for treating it.
  • For stone pimples that occur only one or two, the effective cure is to ask your dermatologist to inject them with cortisone, which makes them healed within 48 hours.


Comedones are acnes which consist of two types. The first is open comedones (blackhead) that look like enlarged and black pores (the black ones are the porous plug that changes color due to oxidation by air). The second is the closed comedones (whitehead) that have skin that grows over the clogged pores so that it looks like small white bumps under the skin.

These acne types of comedones are caused by the dead skin cells and the excess on oil glands at the skin. This occurs when you are not regularly cleaning the skin that dead skin cells and oil on the skin surface accumulate and close the skin cells to form a blockage. Make up and styling products that contain oil can also worsen the situation.

Prevention and Treatment

  • Wash your face every morning and night with a cleanser containing salicylic-acid or AHA / BHA (to peel off dead skin cells) or do facial scrub at least once a week.
  • Use wax paper to absorb excessive oil on the face.
  • Routinely use a mask for oily skin once a week.
  • Remove comedones with pore strips plaster that you can buy in the supermarket.
  • To whiteheads, use acne medication containing salicylic-acid.
