ARAZLO Lotion treats two types of acne

Noninflammatory acne

Noninflammatory acne happens when your skin produces too much oil, causing your hair follicles to become plugged. This causes the white and dark bumps commonly called whiteheads and blackheads.

Inflammatory acne

Inflammatory acne happens when clogged pores cause the bacteria on your skin to grow out of control, causing inflammation. This results in the kind of acne that is red and swollen.

Inflammatory acne looks like small, pink bumps, called papules and pus-filled blisters, called pustules. Inflammatory acne can also cause scars that remain even after acne has cleared.

The good news? You can help prevent both by starting treatment early.

Scarring is a condition that results in uneven skin surface. It can happen when your body makes too much or not enough collagen when repairing inflammatory acne. Scarring is more likely to happen if you leave your acne untreated for years.

Acne can also cause patches of skin that are darker than your normal skin color. This is called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (or PIH), and it happens when your body produces too much melanin while a blemish heals. Melanin is what gives your skin its color.

Different types of skin respond to acne in different ways

Acne can happen to all of us, but its impact can vary based on your skin. Inflammatory acne, which has been linked to scarring, is more likely to cause hyperpigmentation in darker skin, while causing redness in lighter skin.
