What is Fungal Acne Anyway?

The truth is Fungal Acne is neither acne or fungus but it is when the yeast that is commonly found on the skin affects the hair follicles of your skin.

Commutation of yeast often occurs when there is a built up of moisture A.K.A sweat and we all know larger breasts can be quite the conduite of moisture.This is why you typically see acne in common areas where a buildup of sweat occurs in the body like the chest, back, shoulders, forehead, and hairline.


Different Appearance and Sensation

Fungal Acne can easily be mistaken for acne since it appears in a cluster of bumps like pimples all over the skin. The key difference in appearance is that does not come into a head like regular acne. Fungal Acne often looks like red or nude colored bumps that look deeply clogged. If your body acne feels itchy, it is most likely Fungal Acne. Mine itches just typing that.
