It is a common misconception to believe that acne only includes pimples. Acne can also include:
- Blackheads (open comedones)
- Whiteheads (closed comedones)
- Papules (red bumps)
- Pustules (red bumps with white centers, what many people call pimples)
Acne can show up on the face, chest, back, shoulders, neck and upper arms.
