Video: Treating Inflamed Acne Blemishes

By December 6, 2012

Follow me on:

I don't typically get many blackheads, at least not real big ones. No, I tend to get the red, inflamed breakouts. You know, the kind that are super obvious and hurt.

All inflamed breakouts get their start as a non-inflamed blemish (either a closed comedone or, yes, even a blackhead). Not all non-inflammatory blemishes become swollen and red, though. So what makes that inconspicuous little pore blockage suddenly become a big, red pimple?

This video, What To Know About Inflamed Blemishes, explains how inflamed breakouts develop and some of best ways to treat them.
