4 Factors to Consider Before Getting Nodular Acne Treatments


Acne issues have always been a buzzkill as they cause skin damage and scar our self-esteem. Generally, teenagers are prone to getting acne, but it is not contained to just them; it can occur at any stage of life.

One of the severe forms of acne is called nodular acne, here, the stages of recovery at home have passed, and only professional help can cure nodular acne. These days we continuously look at quintessential faces on social media, which we all know gives nothing but heavy complexity. Due to this, we are on a constant lookout for ways to reach our beauty goals. Nevertheless, here are our two cents on nodular acne and treatments through which you can achieve your beauty goals.

Nodular acne: what exactly is it?

Nodular acne is a type of acne that is serious, so they don’t originate from a whitehead or blackhead. Instead, they cause nodules (knots) under the skin, and the area becomes swollen and red. These types of acne last for months which can cause severe skin damage and acne marks that will probably take ages to fade away (if they ever do).

Therefore, treatment at the right time is vital to avoid instances where the damage is too extensive. If any indication/symptoms of nodular acne are witnessed, book an appointment with the dermatologist so that you can receive proper medication for the same.


‘Any type of acne can be cured with a proper diet.’ But, no, that’s not the case with nodular acne. Only with professional help can you cure it.

Indications of Nodular Acne

Nodular acne is also known as blind pimple as it slyly starts forming underneath the skin. Here are the indications that you may face before the nodular acne pops out.

  • Slight lumps start forming under the skin; the bumps are painful and sensitive.

  • Eventually, the lumps (nodules) will start getting firm and cause more pain to the area in which they are formed.

  • The area where the nodules are formed will appear red and irritated.

  • Constant itching and discomfort

Since the symptoms include nodules, it is essential to have a word with a professional to get proper guidance regarding the condition. Home remedies will not work for nodular acne and might even worsen it.

Primary areas on male and female

Everyone’s body has a different algorithm it works by, and nobody is the same regarding how our bodies function or how our skin reacts.

However, there are some similarities in the areas where nodular acne occurs in females and males-

Female -

Jawline, Chin, Cheeks, Back

Male -

Chest, Back, Forehead, Cheeks

Random fact:

Nodular acne comes under the inflammatory acne category, as it causes constant inflammation and sore skin. Factors to consider before getting treated for nodular acne

Here comes the part for which you probably started reading this blog- five factors you should consider before getting nodular acne treatment.

Factors consider before getting nodular acne treatment

1. You squeeze, you lose

The first thing that pops into our heads when we see a whitehead/blackhead is to squeeze it. Well, please don’t do that. Instead, we must unite and defeat the urge to squeeze once and for all. Why? The reason is- Our skin is already hurting due to the internal damage whiteheads/zits cause, and when we try to pull them out manually, it only worsens the situation. Furthermore, it may lead to permanent scarring or aggravation of acne. To avoid such situations, try not to touch those areas where acne is about to show up and use other healing methods like compression using lukewarm water or visiting a dermatologist if the situation worsens.

2. Sunscreen alarm

We mean it! If you are not regular with your sunscreen application, put an alarm, friend. It’s natural to skip sunscreen at times, as its importance has come to light in the recent past. However, it’s also a blunder not to put it regularly, considering our skin needs to be protected from harmful UV rays.

Wearing sunscreen will not only protect your skin from getting burnt, but it will also help avoid early ageing signs.

3. Scalp care

Scalp care is crucial, especially when the skin is causing trouble. Unfortunately, sometimes we ignore dandruff and leave it untreated for a long time, due to which dandruff starts to fall onto the face aggravating the acne. To avoid this, using anti-dandruff shampoos will help. If not, consult a dermatologist.

4. Lazy lad behaviour

Bruno Mars was kidding when he put out ‘the lazy song.’ You must research the symptoms immediately if you feel your skin is acting out. There are times when we procrastinate, and the condition only gets worse with time.

5. Preparation is key

Before you visit a dermatologist, ensure you don’t forget any details they need to know. At that moment, it is easy to overlook certain essential elements. To avoid it, make notes beforehand about anything related to your problems. This will not only help the dermatologist understand your condition better, your treatment will also take place smoothly.

A professional skin expert can only perform nodular acne treatment, as the lumps must be dissolved to cure it. There are various skincare treatments, including oil-control facials/anti-ageing facials, which can help keep the skin free from any gunk and impurities to help prevent nodular acne. However, only skin experts can guide you if it has already been born under your skin.
