Acne breakouts can be frustrating, and they can also leave scars on the face and other areas of the body. Some people find that acne scars are an unwanted reminder of a painful and bothersome condition. However, acne scars do not have to be permanent, as some home remedies and medical treatments can help get rid of them.
Acne comes in different forms:
- Mild acne: this causes the whiteheads or blackheads that most of us get at some point
- Soderate acne: this can cause red, inflamed pimples (called papules) and red pimples with white centers (called pustules)
- Severe acne: this causes painful, pus-filled cysts or lumps (called nodules) under the skin
