I’ve been trying to answer this question for a long time now. I would consider myself to have mild-to-moderate acne. I get big zits on my face occasionally, but I don’t know if I would call them cysts. It’s a big zit, and it has pus in it, but waht’s the difference between a cyst and a pustule? I can’t imagine that I’m the only person that gets a big zit now and again, will this scar? It’s big, and it’s full of pus, but I am resisting all urges to squeeze it. I hate it because I won’t know if it will scar until it has healed. What can I do? I’m super frustrated about this, my skin only gets zits like this once and a while, not all the time. Many sources say that nodulocystic or severe acne is the most likely kind of acne to cause scarring. I wouldn’t call my acne severe, but this one pimple is pretty big. What advice do you have for me? I’m freaking out, I can’t stand the suspense of wondering if my skin will be able to bounce back after this lesion has disappeared. It’s basically one of those embarrassing “zits” that “normal” people are supposed to get sometimes, so why do I feel like it’s going to scar no matter what I do? I don’t have overly scar-prone skin, but I do get enough pimple to consider it a possibility. I’m just nervous because i get a pimple like this about once a month, mostly they heal okay, and other times I get so worried. Is it the summer weather? I have gotten like 4 or 5 major zits on my face in the past 2 or 3 months when I usually have none. I rarely have a full on break out, I just get these big ones more often than I usually do and I really want to know if there is a chance THAT my skin won’t scar from this. THANKS!!
