Are there different types of acne?
The main two categories of acne are inflammatory and non-inflammatory acne. Inflammatory acne is what is traditionally thought of as “pimples” and cysts. Inflammatory acne lesions can lead to scarring. Non-inflammatory acne lesions are blackheads and whiteheads, officially open and closed comedones.
Do I have to use my anti-acne medicine every day?
Not necessarily - all acne creams are meant to be used in a unique way. Some creams must be applied every day, while others are used 2-3 times weekly. Your anti-acne regimen is specific to your skin; you will receive instuctions from your dermatologist as to how to best use your anti-acne medicine.
