Red pimples (papules) or Cysts?

Recommended Posts

Do I have red pimples or cysts? The kind of pimpes im getting are about 3-5mm wide and are really red. They do not come with pus but eventually after 3-6 days, I will get a whitehead and I squeeze out the pus. They are red but arnt painful when I push or touch them.

What kind of pimples are these? Would the regimen be effective in this?

they are papules. i believe that bp will help you. theese are the most common type of pimples.

just to get it right:

CYSTS = deep inflamed lesions under the skin. they oftenly cause severe swelling and redness in and around them. they are very painful. and they will not come to a head

WHITEHEADS = a little bit like blackheads, but they pop out on the skin and therefore appears white. they are usually not inflamed and or red.

I still have trouble determining the difference btwn all of these. Especially nodules and postules...i just cant tell the difference and dont know i have red marks or permanent scars..it baffles me.
