Comedones are pores or hair follicles that have gotten blocked with bacteria, oil, and dead skin cells to form a bump on your skin. They are not as inflamed and painful as some other types of acne. But they can be unsightly.
Whiteheads. Whiteheads are blocked pores that have closed over. They are usually the color of your flesh or slightly lighter than the surrounding skin. They are not usually painful. You may have one at a time. They can also appear in clusters.
Blackheads. Blackheads are bumps with a dark spot on top. Unlike whiteheads, your clogged pore stays open. The dead skin and oils blocking it are exposed to the air. The oxygen in the air then causes the spot to turn a dark color.
In darker skin types, chemical peels are safe and effective in reducing papule, pustule, and comedone count. Medium depth peels that produce injury into or through the papillary dermis can be used to treat acne scarring.
