About Cystic Aacne
Cystic acne is a type of inflammatory acne that causes painful, pus-filled pimples to form deep under the skin. Acne occurs when oil and dead skin cells clog skin pores.
With cystic acne, bacteria also gets into the pores, causing swelling or inflammation. Cystic acne is the most severe type of acne. Acne cysts are often painful and more likely to cause scarring.
How does Cystic Acne look like
An acne cyst can look like a red bump under the skin, crusty, or oozing pus from a white-yellow bump. These cysts vary in size; they can be as small as a pea or as large as a dime. In general, they tend to be painful and tender to touch.
