Acne commonly known as pimples, is a common skin condition that can affect anyone.

It occurs when your pores get clogged with oil and dead skin cells, and create a place for bacteria to grow and thrive.

Bacteria may grow under the skin for weeks before breakouts occur on the surface
Pimples often happen on the face, they also occur on the body, including the back, shoulders, chest, upper arms and buttocks. We have maximum oil glands on the face, shoulders, the back and the buttocks, hence acne appear on these areas more.

Pimples are broadly classified into 4 grades. Grade I, Grade II, Grade III & Grade IV

Following Are The Types Of Pimple Cure Treatment

In terms of appearance, they’re pretty much exactly what they sound like: small blemishes with whitish “heads,” which result when the follicles get plugged with oil and dead skin cells. Home remedies like drinking lots of water (8-10 glasses daily), eating fruits having anti-oxidant action (oranges, grapes), avoiding oily food might actually work in whitehead treatment.  


If you see tiny blemishes that look like black dots, you’ve got blackheads. Like whiteheads, blackheads are, dermatologically speaking, classified as comedones. But unlike whiteheads, which are closed, blackheads are open. Home remedies for acne like blackheads includes the use of an exfoliating facewash & keeping your skin moisturized. Also since the pores are open use of a non comedogenic sunscreen is recommended.

Considering papules represent the phase beyond whiteheads when the presence of bacteria, oil and dead skin cells under the skin have caused inflammation, you should know papules by their redness and swelling—not to mention, the absence of pus. Relatively speaking, they’re small to medium in size. 

This is where things start getting serious. Since infection & inflammation is there, the old school “home remedies” or ” natural treatment” won’t show desired results. Complete pimple cure for this grade is possible only by medicinal intervention. Its advisable you consult a dermatologist.   


Pustules are similar to papules, but they’ve got pus—which hopefully makes the name easy to remember! Because they contain whitish or yellowish-looking pus, they can look a lot like bigger, “angrier” whiteheads, and they may feel painful to the touch. 

Home remedies for acne like pustules just doesn’t work. But again its curable if you take a proper dermatologist treatment. Treatment is a bit complex and will include topical as well as oral medicines in case it’s too severe

If you’ve got a face full of large, red, inflamed blemishes that seem to last for months, chances are you’ve got one type of severe acne: nodules, cysts. These are indicative of a deeper condition than your average acne type and can cause more severe and permanent damage to your skin if left untreated.

A dermatologist is the only person who can cure this grade 4 acne. Hence immediate consultation and initiation of treatment is advisable. The treatment is a bit prolonged and will involve use of combination therapy.
