Help? Not Sure If It Is Cystic Acne?

4 posts in this topic

I've been used to acne for a while now, but suddenly in about 1-2 weeks, there is a big circle of acne on my left cheek! I'm not sure if it is cystic acne but it is kind of itchy. the outside few are scars but the ones in the middle are bumps. they don't feel sore at all.

If it continues to itch it could be a bunch of things that are not technically acne. It could be a fungal condition. Because of the organization of the lesions, it could be a bacterial infection.
