    I just wanted to know as I've just read an article that states when a pimple bleeds out it's most likely cystic acne, I've only been breaking out less than a month and my face isn't covered with pimples but it does look that way. Every few days I get a new pimple as one turns into a scab I've currently got 3-4 active pimples so that's classed as mild acne but some i I've got have been under the skin.

    Cystic acne means that you have painful pimples deep under your skin, that pimple creates a huge bump with pus inside and once you pop it, the infection spreads.

    You have too see a dermatologist as soon as possible. Acne is not a joke, your face could get much worse if you don't pay attention to it.

    A dermatologist can help you with a treatment plan.

    Cystic acne is altogether different from just normal spots. You can usually feel a spot under the skin, but that doesn't mean you've got cystic acne, which is altogether more widespread and obvious. If you're in doubt, see your GP, but don't attempt to diagnose the exact type of acne you've got over the internet or by student forum!
