What type of acne do I have, treatments suggestions please?

Recommended Posts

Hey whats up everybody, I have a serious problem, what type of acne do I have and what type of treatments should I use, I'm breaking out for the first time. I'm 18 years old.

The types of things I get are:

1. Blackheads, on cheeks, forehead, and nose.

2. Whiteheads, on the jawlines

3. sometimes inflamed whiteheads on cheeks and mostly jawlines

4. Painful bumps, maybe cysts? (I pop them and they heal right after, so i'm not so sure, but they hurt when popped and when touched)

Please help me out, thank you :D

It sounds to me like glycolic acid could help your skin condition. Maybe you could go see a derm to get more personalized advice? In the mean time use a gentle face wash twice a day and a moisturizer at least once a day. I would advice ordering an aha such as dan's and applying that morning and night along with a sunscreen in the morning. Good luck. I hope things get better for you.

NO DAIRY PRODUCTS!!!

NO SUGAR

dairy products like milk and cheese have certain acids in them that causes us to break out
