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.

My acne looked like that last summer. My derm said it was moderate to severe. I'm almost clear now using topicals, but I still occasionally get cysts like that out of nowhere. I can't go on accutane because I won't take oral antibiotics for acne, and my derm needs me to try a few antibiotics before I can get accutane....grrr...

Before I went to see a doc my nose (at the bottom, on the sides, where it connects with your cheeks) was absolutely terrible. I went from cyst to cyst. The only time my nose wasn't infected with a cyst was because both sides had just healed from the previous cyst; a week later another would form. Having a runny nose was hell because there was always painful cyst there, or the irritation of wipping my nose would provoke another. My nose would have been as bad as a few of those photos. The skin there now is destroyed. Pink pink pink, nothing but scar tissue really. It'll never be the same, I'll never have a smooth connection running from my face to my nose. Every morning, when I awake, the first thing I do is run my finger against my nose to feel for a hard lump. Haven't had a bad cyst there in maybe two years now (two or three minor ones) but it is still a constant fear. I cannot imagine having acne like that everywhere. Honestly, I would kill myself (yes, I am that vain). If my nose was still like that, I would be a total recluse.
