What does severe acne look like?

Can anyone post a picture that shows the minimumrequirement to make it classify as severe acne? How do you differentiate between moderate and severe acne?

The reason why I'm asking is because I've always thought my acne was moderate until my doctor told me it was severe.

By the way, I underlined the word "minimum" before some dickhead replies "you don't know what severe acne looks like, moron?"

Maybe like this? Only you could have less clumping.

Holy fuck! I think you might be right A-Pro. Just judge a lot harsher in my mind I guess. But I took the online test and it said I have moderate. Um. So do you know wich of the first pics you posted was taken first? And what kinda acne do you got?

Jesus Christ people! Everybody knows those cases are really severe. I'm referring to those cases that border moderate to severe.

cysts = severe

people have different definitions for cysts. A cyst is at least a 1/2 long painful bump under the skin, usually it's a bunch of zits fused together.

As you said, I am self-aware/self concious of my scars, but my heart goes out to those people, I have a panic attack if I get one pimple now, becuase for some reason, i think Im going to break out....break out with like two or three, I should thank god I guess for never having something that bad...wowsers, Im still self concious though

I'd have to say this is about the minimum to be called severe. Now, there is scarring present which obviously doesn't have to be there.

I had this type of acne, where it's not so much covering your whole face, but huge cysts/nodles appear. I think this chin alone would make the person a severe acne candidate.
