Acne Vulgaris has several symptoms with different types of lesions. In general, there are six types of skin lesions. They are blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts:
  • Blackheads: The appearance of the lesion is a dark lump on the skin. This lump comes from a blocked follicle where the upper part of the blockage has been oxidized, so that the color changes to a dark color. This is often also called open comedo.
  • Whiteheads: The appearance of the lesions is similar to blackheads. However, the upper part of the blockage remains tightly closed by the skin, so it does not undergo the oxidation process. This will be seen as a lump or white spot on the surface of the skin.
