It is formed when a pigment known as melanin produced by oil glands and also which is found within sebum, makes contact with air gets oxidized and turn black. They are a mild painless form of acne.
Whereas blackheads are open, whiteheads are closed ones. They appear as small, white and circular bumps on the skin’s surface. Whiteheads are formed when a dirtied pore is covered under a thin layer of skin that leads to building up of pus. Although they are unsightly, this type of pimple is generally considered mild form acne.
- PAPULES – When covered pores become increasingly irritated or infected, they increase in size and get deeper into the skin. If pimples get trapped beneath the skin’s surface, they can form papules: red, sore spots which can’t be seen.

Since they’re inaccessible, they’re a bit more difficult to treat, and are therefore considered moderately severe acne.
