What is Fungal Acne?

What is Fungal Acne?

IT'S NOT ACNE!
But it definitely looks like it, and it often accompanies acne.
This distinction is important because it means it won't respond to regular acne treatments.

Fungal acne is a type of infection in your skin's hair follicles. It most commonly appears as small pimples that don't vary much in shape or size, often along with itching. Fungal acne can cause whiteheads and skin irritation.

The sebaceous glands within your skin produce an oil called “sebum.” These glands can overproduce oil, and your pores and hair follicles can become clogged with oil as well as bacteria and yeast that are naturally found on your skin. Bacteria can lead to the traditional acne blemishes, but the yeast can cause an inflammation of the hair follicles, or “folliculitis.” It’s not contagious, infectious or an indicator of poor skin hygiene.



How do I know it's FA?

C.acne (acne) is a type of bacteria whereas this is of yeast origin. They often appear as clusters, make sure to check for small but stubborn pustules or papules.
