What kind of acne

Recommended Posts

Dunno to be honest, sounds like some kind of rash or something. You maybe should see a doc to check that it is actually acne.

I'm pretty sure I know what causes it.. My skin has been to dry from the bp and feels tight.. I didnt think you could get acne from dry skin though.

You sure can get acne from dry skin. After all it's the unexfoliated cells that clog w/ the sebum in the pore to make acne. But I think you thing sounds like dermatitis which is irritation from dry skin or an irrirtant {poison ivy etc.} use a moisturizer & see a doctor.

i have that on my chest and my derm gave me a hydrocortizone lotion to put on it. He said it was a hair follicle infection and not acne, dermatitis basically. SO, I'd agree with shatangi.
