Pimples forms on clogged skin pores with excess of oil and dead skin cells which forms a great environment for bacteria development. They cause local swelling and redness.
Pimples appear once in a while. But if they appear on a greater surface with many pus-filled pimples on your face or neck, it is acne — a chronic (or long-term) condition that mainly affects teens (because of hormones imbalance). But don’t worry, there are a lot of treatment solutions for acne.
Acne often comes in form of more inflamed pimples that are a clogged pores (with oil) that get infected by bacteria making skin red and sore and are often filled with puss.
If you found a painful pimple that is deeper beneath your skin, that’s called cystic acne and it can last up to 10 days. There are over-the-counter treatments for this so, ask your pharmacist. If it lasts for more then 2 weeks, maybe it’s time to see a doctor, it could be a sign of a weak immune system.
So, pimples form when the skin produces too much oil from time to time, acne is a condition and should be treated. If you get many pimples often, I suggest to see a dermatologist, to start a mild treatment as soon as possible.
There is also bacne or back acne that can form from wearing tight clothes or heavy backpacks or it can form from neglecting that area between your scapular bones from proper cleaning. Use a back body brush with a longer handle or a bath belt to reach there and you’ll be fine.
Whiteheads are pimples that forms on closed pores that build up oil excess. They are not infected with bacteria and are not red or swollen (too much).
Blackheads on the other hand are pimples that forms on opened pores that are exposed to air and gets oxidized, turning their color to grey.
Whether your skin tends to form more whiteheads or blackheads, it’s up to your genetic markup, it’s not that you treat your skin differently.
