Difference between a Pimple, Whitehead, Blackhead and a cyst

To tackle a cystic acne is a big problem. Many girls have this never-ending problem. To treat them we generally turn to skin care dermatologists. So to know what type of cystic acne you have let's have a look.

Cystic acne is an infection that goes deep into your skin and occurs when a pore becomes blocked. The pore then becomes inflamed, red, and painful. The bump is normally full of pus. If this does happen it can spread the infection, leading to more breakouts.

How do you identify a pimple, whitehead, blackhead or a cyst?
To make sure you never have a mix-up and end up making your skin worse, here’s how to identify each spot and the best way to tackle it:

A hair follicle that is blocked by dead skin cells piling up after the follicle opening gets blocked. It is smaller and less inflamed than a Cyst.

A white head that pushes through and is then exposed to oxygen, which oxidizes the contents and makes them turn black is called blackheads.

A Pimple:
Overgrowth of bacteria which stimulates an immune response. It creates redness, swelling, pain and sometimes pus.

Cysts tend to be more painful, larger, redder and raised than a white head.
