Determine the SEVERITY of your ACNE! **LINK**

http://www.facefacts.com/SUB_template_dd_f...t.asp#different

Go to this part :

How do I know if my acne is mild, moderate, or severe?

If your problem is mostly with blackheads and whiteheads, you probably have mild acne.

If you have raised reddish bumps, called papules or raised reddish bumps with white centers, called pustules, you probably have moderate acne.

If your acne is comprised of deep-seated solid, painful masses in your skin, called nodules or cysts, you probably have severe acne. This could be accompanied by characteristics of mild or moderate acne.

haha, yeah i found this before, it's entertaining. I had moderate acne.

...BTW facefacts.com is an advertisement for accutane, they just can't mention accutane because of legal issues, but they urge people to see a dermatologist because they know a certain percentage of those that do will be prescribed accutane. If you look at the bottom it says Roche

Mild-moderate. The taz/benzaclin has prevented new breakouts. Now I'm mostly dealing with blackheads and red marks/overall redness on the nose and around the mouth. I thought I was doing fine for a while until my dad asked "Why is your face red?" That kinda put a damper on my mood.

According to that website I have certainly had moderate acne in the past. The last derm that I used to see used to tell me that my acne was mild, despite me visiting her with papules and pustules. oh well......
