Help me please.. in spite of what I read online about the different types of acne (you don't have to reiterate or reeducate me on that one, for sure) I can NOT seem to identify the type of acne I have.

I suspect that I have cysts but it's only two or three and they are in the same area. The area is large, red and inflamed, but if you feel around you can only feel a tiny lump in there somewhere. Also, nothing hurts when I touch it. Here is a picture. Please help me guys, I really would appreciate it!

The one on the bottom (if you can distinguish it from the other) has no bump that I can feel... and the one on the top has a tiny bump i can feel. But as you can see everything is large and red.

Can't be sure, of course, could be some sort of irritation-- but it does look like cysts to me. They don't have to hurt. Have had plenty that haven't and plenty that have. Have you had this before? Does it feel like there's fluid or like a hard mass under the skin? If so I'd wager it's cysts.

Kind of looks more like a bug bite or bee sting to me.
