what exactly is inflamed acne?

Recommended Posts

I dont know what is the difference. I mean, i heard that if your acne stays inflamed for long periods (what exactly is a long period?) that it has a higher potential to cause scarring. How do you know if your pimples are inflamed?

thanks for the response. Do you know how long of a period if usually considered a long time for a lesion to stay inflamed? I had this big pimple on my cheek, but it is pink and not red and it doesnt hurt, and doesnt have any swelling

I'm not really sure. Everyone heals at different rates. Someone whose pimples usually clear up in a week might consider two weeks a "long time". For other people, two weeks might seem pretty quick.
