There is no specific test to diagnose Acne; it’s just by the simple visual inspection by which Doctors classify the Acne and treat accordingly.

Acne are classified into 4 Grades; each Grade having specific visual findings like simple Black heads , Pimples in Grade I to Papules , Pustules in Grade II; Nodules in Grade III & the severest form Grade IV having cystic lesions.

Acne is treated as per the symptoms with a combination of remedies including over the counter skin care, acne medications and chemical or laser procedures.
