What does it look like? (photos)


The problem is exclusively on the face (including eyelids), and may for some people also appear in the neck, ears and scalp.

If you also have photos to share, please share them. This:

  1. allows others to see that they are not alone
  2. allows us to compare and gain knowledge about the variations of the disease
  3. allows patients to show similar photos to their doctors, so that they can get a better diagnose, which also helps us again.

Photos can easily be uploaded to this forum. If you want to crop the lesions out of the photo so that you are unrecognizable, but don’t know how, then feel free to contact me by private message, then I’ll crop the photo for you.

Here a collection of photos found on the Internet.

A starting white head like pustule under the right nostril. It looks like a normal whitehead, which normally appears when follicle/pore is blocked. But is differs from whitehead in:

  • different color: whiteheads often have a clearer white color in terms of brightness
  • whitehead often have a sharp border from white to normal/red skin, whereas this one is more gradient
  • it may itch
  • it is less raised in height than a whitehead

So instead of a normal whiteheaded pustule, is often also looks like a vesicle.

The next day, oozing and crusts are visible:

Example of oozing on the outside of the left nostril:

Crusts on the chin in a more severe situation:


The most affected region for me is shown in green in the image below. The greener the location, the more often it occurs. This may differ from person to person, but most people describe a wide T-zone, with the width of the eyes.
