Which type of acne does everyone here have?

I think there is 3 different types of acne.

1. Acne vulgaris

2. Acne conglobota

3. Acne fulminans

I've got acne vulgaris which is supposed to be the most common one out of the 3 according to scientists. I was just wondering seeing as this is an acne forum, which type(s) do you have? (Your doctor/dermatologist should've told you this).

No they didn't, how do I see which one I have

I think only the doctor/dermatologist can tell you that. I dont think you can tell by yourself. Its all down to the severity and size of the acne lesions and what other illnesses come about because of it. The most common one though is the vulgaris one which most people seem to have as I do.

Although I knew someone at uni who had acne conglobota and his was ten times worse than mine. I felt sorry for him. His face was literally disfigured.
