Pyoderma Faciale:

In the previous post we described about a type of acne which is know as acne conglobata which is the most severe form of acne vulgaris and is more common in males. Today we define about Pyoderma Faciale

Pyoderma Faciale


This type of severe facial acne affects only females, usually between the ages of 20 to 40 years old, and is characterized by painful large nodules, pustules and sores which may leave scarring. It begins abruptly, and may occur on the skin of a woman who has never had acne before. It is confined to the face, and usually does not last longer than one year, but can wreak havoc in a very short time.
