what kind of acne is this?

ok here are pictures of my adult onset acne.

i had acne as a teenager but it wasn't this type.

can anyone explain to me - is this cystic? why only in one area of my face?

hello, actually i suffered same thing, but it my case, its just started from no acne at all and then one morning as I woke up I noticed some something bumpy on my face and like you it's just on one side of my face. If I am not mistaken, since your picture is quite blurred, it is the same appearance just like me and based on my understanding yes, it is cystic type of acne.

How are treating such?

well i went on yasmin 2 months ago and have yet to see results. sad.gif

otherwise i'm treating w/ paula's choice beta hydroxy 2% daily, puredeming intense gel every other day, and copper peptides every other day.

i'm starting to notice them dry up, but they are so RED and prominent!!!!

hopefully the yasmin will start to kick in, i was told acne in that spot is hormonal. . . eusa_wall.gif

hmm the weird thing is i've NEVER had acne on my cheeks/jawline/mouth . . . at least not for 10 yrs or so.

how long should it take these puppies to behave?

generally from my experiences they should be gone soon, as the cheek area doesnt contain much oil, spots like foreheads, under the chin, around the nose tend to take allot longer due to the pores, cheeks on the other hand are more "fine"... hope that helps...
